Staging on a Budget

Home Staging

When selling your home it is important to use every tool at your disposal to increase the chances of a quicker sale that is close to full price.  One of the simplest things you can do is stage your home so that potential buyers find it pleasant and inviting.  That being said, it is sometimes the case that professional staging companies may not be in your budget, but no worries there are some simple things you can do that won’t break the bank.  

1.) Declutter – Clear away the extra stuff lying around so that buyers can have a clean line of sight.  If there are items that you no longer want or need this is a good time for a garage sale or donate them to a local charity and you’ll have less to pack on moving day.

2.) Deep Clean – Make sure your home is clean from floor to ceiling especially bathrooms and the kitchen (stove, refrigerator, etc.).  This will show buyers that your home was taken care of and well maintained. Never underestimate the power of a clean, fresh smelling home.

3.) Add a splash of color – Liven up your home with contrasting colors, this will draw attention to the positive aspects of your home.  Simple things like throw pillows, colorful table decorations, even a new shower curtain can make a big difference in perceptions.
