     Now Step back, and look at your home through the eyes of the buyer.  Is there anything else you would want changed, cleaned, or repaired if you were looking to buy your house today?  If so, it is better to make the changes before putting on the market, as "first impressions" can make the difference in a home selling quickly and for the best value.
