What can we do to increase the value of our house so we can move within the next year?

We are really interested in starting a family and moving within the next year. We have out grown our home. What can we do to increase the value of our house so we have money to put down on our next house?

Great Question!
In housing, most buyers are looking at kitchens and baths! Your home should be clean, painted nicely in a nuetral pallet and be free of major defects.  You should also make sure the minor things are taken care of too. 
One of the best things you can do is to walk through your home as if you were buying it again.  If you don't think you are objective enough, call an opinionated friend or family member. ( we all have one or two :)
Always remember, every market is local and you should consult an agent who is familiar with your neighborhood and have them advise you as well.
Good luck!
