Help sell our house (picture heavy!!) Updated with listing photos!!

Final pictures

http://matrix.lvar-mls.com/Matrix/Pu...=34&View=G&i=0

updated 10/7 questions
Okay so I was thinking about moving the flower wall hanging from the master to the kitchen. I agree the kitchen needs a bigger piece on the wall and that it currently looks cold. But do you think that will do it??

Also do you look in cabinets and closets when house shopping?? (I mean I do in empty houses but usually not in occupied ones) I was thinking about it and ended up packing up about half the dishes in the kitchen to make the cabinets not crowded so it doesn't appear we are short on storage space. Also I was thinking about doing the same thing with our hall linen closet and the master closet are cedar closets. I see this as a selling point but one that people are going to want to look at.

Hope this all makes sense...
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay so I finally took pictures today and need help getting everything staged for when the photographer comes on Monday. You'll have to look past the mess as I did not clean first, I've spent the past two days doing all the exterior things! To make it easier I'm going to create a separate post for each room, along with things we are doing before pictures (other than the obv cleaning)

Please tell me anything that would bug you as a "potential buyer"

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

House background: we purchased estate as is in 2006. Since the we replaced the roof, siding, windows, both doors, the landscape, gutted all three bedrooms down to studs, replaced both toilets and bathroom vanity's, new counter tops in the kitchen, new appliances in the kitchen, new forced air heating/cooling system with duct work, new light fixtures throughout, french drained the basement, new sewer line, new carpet and paint, lutron lighting control system, digital programmable thermostat, um that is all I can think of at the moments... not that this is a small list

The house is a 1940s cape cod approx 1,000 sqft. Hardwood floors except for stairs, has cedar closets.
