Cheapest and easiest rarely goes together with top dollar.

Google for Presale Fixup ideas - generally if you put some elbow grease into spiffying up the interior and Exterior and all appliances - to remove anything that would drive a buyer away, you are well on your way. Some painting touchup or repainting the worst rooms or exteriors surfaqces can help a lot too if deteriorated - but remember, cleaning up a decent house can help some with sale price and a lot with the number or expediency of offers, but if in generally run-down shape a coat of paint will not help very much.

Cleaning up trash and washing all washable surfaces of course, fixing minor DIY items. Also neaten up the yard - cut the lawn, trim scraggly bushes, maybe a bit of bark under plants around the house. A coat of sealer on asphalt drivesw can help make the house look newer, as can redoing paint on trim on front porch area if not in good shape.

One of your best resources will be your realtor - most will gladly do a walk-around pointout out eyesores and things that could turn a buyer off.
