I'll add my $0.02.

Definitely change out anything that screams 1970s. DW & I recently looked at a house and the bathroom was probably like yours. Everything about it screamed 70s/80s. Gold faucets, gold towel bars, gold shower door knob, etc., etc., etc. Immediately made us wonder about general upkeep and maintenance of the entire house.

What you replace, go neutral, not necessarily trendy. Buyers can add their own touch to the place with accent pieces and doo-dads and not be worried about their stuff matching some bright color and ultra-modern light fixtures. Toupe and shaker beige are great wall colors.

Definitely declutter, especially closets. Get rid of 1/2 the stuff in them so they look bigger. Plus, makes it easier for the buyer to imagine their stuff in there.
