7 ways to sell a not-so-perfect house
New carpet and fresh paint
Fleysher says fresh paint and new carpet aren't worth the investment.
But Furth says the cost might be less than you'd imagine and even an inexpensive paint job and commercial-grade carpet can make a positive difference.
"It's worth a few bucks to get the carpet and paint looking decent," she says. "Otherwise, you have to cut your price and generally you'll have to cut it a lot more than paint and carpet would cost."
