When it comes to looking at houses, we do tend to judge a book by its cover. That’s why it’s so important to make sure your home looks as appealing as possible, both inside and out, if you want to get top dollar when you sell. U.S. News & World Report talked to real estate experts, who said these home improvements will help boost your selling price.

Improve your landscape. Keep your lawn neat, trim the bushes, clear out any old or tired-looking shrubbery and replace with new ones, add color with potted plants or garden beds, and top everything off with a fresh layer of mulch or rock.

Spruce up your entryway. Paint the front door or replace it, and update your house numbers and mailbox.

Change out light fixtures and plumbing fixtures. Replacing outdated fixtures with more modern ones gives your house an instant lift.

Return rooms to their original uses. If you use the extra bedroom as an office, turn it back into a bedroom.

Replace dirty or worn carpet. Prospective buyers can tell the difference between new carpet and cleaned carpet, and often, cleaning it just isn’t enough. If you have hardwood floors underneath the carpet, your best bet might be to refinish them and forego carpet completely.

Remove window treatments, unless they are current and high-end. Your window treatments probably won’t match a prospective buyer’s décor, so you’re better off removing them. Plus, uncovered windows let in more light.

Depersonalize. House hunters want to imagine themselves in your home, so remove obvious and identifying personal items, like photos and knick-knacks.

Clean thoroughly. Make every inch of the house sparkle and shine by deep cleaning it. And then think about hiring a house-cleaning service to do it, too.

Paint every room. A fresh coat of paint in a neutral color appeals to everyone. It freshens up the house, making it look newer and more modern.

Consider replacing textured ceilings. For some buyers, popcorn ceilings are a deal-breaker. If your home was built before 1979, the ceilings could contain asbestos, so you would need to hire a professional to remove the texture. If it’s a newer house, you can scrape the ceilings yourself or, if your ceilings are high enough, you could just install drywall over them to create new ceilings.
