Remember, do the best you can! I do this every day, you will get no judgment from me! Our goal is to make your home look as bright and inviting as possible so that potential buyers can envision themselves in the space. De-cluttering is the best thing you can do. Less is more, and you are moving - so go ahead and pack things up!  If you have time, sweep and vacuum, wash the windows and make the kitchen and bathrooms sparkle.
