Windows and Doors
All windows and doors should open and close easily and without creaking. Creaking noises make a house feel old. A few squirts of WD-40 should take care of this. Also, make sure there are no cracked or broken windowpanes and clean all the glass. Clean windows let in more light and can brighten a home significantly. Take a good look at your doorknobs. They should be cleaned and polished and always easy to turn. Remember that buyers will be turning every knob in the house.
