Don't need you telling me how

And here's the poll that might be some use - although we may just ignore everything about it, of course.

The background is that we're trying to sell in July or August and we haven't exactly been improving the house with an eye to the price. The shower has been completely replaced, but that's the only room I'm confident needs nothing done to it. Jon's room has a very dead carpet and hasn't been recorated at all. My room has a sanded floor, and has been painted cream with purple wood and a cerise ceiling. Sandy's room has an OK carpet and is painted yellow with dark blue wood, Paul's room, which is the living room, has cream walls and dark red wood and ceiling and also has a partially sanded floor with a very ropey old carpet filling the large unsanded middle bit. And the kitchen needs various bits and bobs done, like sealant round the top of the units and replacement handles and such.

Update: I shoould have also said we're all going to be moved out by the time viewings start, so the place will be empty and as clean as we can get it...
