The spring buying season has been a huge challenge, but there are things that home sellers can do to be one of the ones who breaks the cycle.

Trulia (TRLA) has some tips.

If you’re planning to put your house on the market, you likely want to maximize your very limited time and extra cash.  That’s why Trulia suggests zeroing in on what we call Buyer Hot Spots: the ‘make it or break it’ focal points of a home.  As a seller with a tight time line (and budget), you’ll want focus on these rooms first.

The Two Hot Spots: The two most closely inspected and anticipated rooms of a house are the kitchen and master bathroom. They’re the interior spaces where the most value can be added during a sale, so they need to look their best.

A well-appointed kitchen will dramatically increase the value of your home, so really spice up this spot to grab buyer attention. The same holds true for the bathrooms – especially the master– which will charm open house-goers with modern upgrades like dual vanities and soaking tubs.
