5. Conserve Utilities

Turn the lights off! Most buyers ask for utility bills. “Energy wasters” who sell a home will rue the times they forgot to turn off lights, turn down the air conditioner, or left the TV on all day. It would be ill-advised to fake the amount of energy being used by simply living in the dark and cutting utility costs to nearly zero. However, careful and prudent use of energy can cut bills by enough so that a buyer does not have sticker shock about what it costs to maintain electricity, gas, or oil to run a house.
