Staging Your Home To Sell

Selling a home can be a stressful time for some people. Not only are you leaving memories and familiarity, but between all of the cleaning, organizing and packing, you are now responsible for making your house look as presentable as possible. Which is where the staging process comes into play. Appearance is everything when selling a home, and staging can become pretty expensive depending on what kind of image you want to give your home. But with these simple tips, you can learn how to beautifully stage your home without breaking the bank.
1) Stain dated kitchen cabinets instead of replacing them
Apply the stain evenly, going with the grain of the wood. Then add some stylish hardware and you’ll have a look the buyers will love for less than $200.
2) Clearing the clutter
A person selling their home should ultimately pack up around 90% of their belongings when staging it. Too much clutter prevents potential buyers from being able to focus on the bones of the house. A simple way to do this would be removing any items on countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms.
3) Grimy bathroom walls are a major red flag to potential buyers
By mixing a spray bottle with one-part water and one-part bleach, you can spray the walls and watch the grime disappear. Then add a fresh coat of paint to give it a brand new look.
4) Depersonalize
The reason you want to depersonalize your home is because you want buyers to view it as their potential home. The easiest way to do this is to simply pack away personal belongings like family pictures and religious items.
5) Cleaning and deodorizing
No perspective buyer wants to look at a dirty, smelly home. So having your home professionally cleaned before showing is money well spent. Even doing something as simple as baking cookies in the oven will give a pleasant aroma that is appealing to buyers.
