Staging your home will get it sold faster, but sometimes we don’t always have the budget to stage a whole home. While if you can afford a stager, we suggest you do, but if not, this is how you can stage your home yourself and on a budget.
Put family photos and decor away, buyers want to be able to picture themselves in your home. This includes, photos and kids’ drawings or awards on the fridge. Also, don’t forget to clear out closets of unnecessary clutter. You can also get matching hangers to make a more visually appealing closet space.
Stuffed and overflowing closets are unattractive and shrink storage size, visually. Choosing gender neutral colors for bedrooms also helps create more appeal to more people. A cohesive color scheme with a headboard and few decorative items can really improve the look of a bedroom.
The first thing you should do before anyone views your home is to clean it, and give it a deep clean. There is no bigger turnoff than dusty shelves, hanging cobwebs, or strange odors.
A dated-looking home will receive lower offers. While renovating your home may not be the best solution in this situation, there are ways to modernize it. Start with the dining room, create a statement visual point of interest by adding fresh flowers. Add lighting or emphasize natural lighting with mirrors.
These few simple tweaks can increase your home’s selling price by hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars.
