Easy Ways to Stage your Home

If you’re getting ready to sell your home, you know that you need to be able to stage the home in a way that allows potential buyers to seem themselves in this home as well as make it look presentable and beautiful. This may seem as if it would cost quite a chunk of cash to do, but you’d be presently surprised to find out it doesn’t have to! Just follow these simple and cheap tips!

One thing to do is to pack away any personal items. This is simple as well as cheap! This is because a potential buyer needs to be able to envision themselves in this house. This cannot happen if they keep seeing pictures of you all around the house, it can be very distracting.

You also need to clear all your clutter! Basically, you need to pack away most of your home. This is because if a buyer sees the home full of personal items and knick knacks, they may be turned off by the house all together. You want to ensure the buyer focuses on the house itself and does not focus on your personal life. Pack away things in the attic, basement, garage and things off of counters and this will help tremendously.

Make sure that you also rearrange and neutralize all your rooms. Ensure that when potential buyers come into your house, they know that each room has a purpose. Everything should be neat and organized. Also, make sure to paint over walls to give them a fresh coat, and more neutral colors.

In addition, make sure your house is clean and fresh. If your house smells bad and dirty, then no one will want to view it, no matter how organized and neutral the house it. Clean and deodorize the bathrooms, windows, glass doors, basements and ceiling fans.

The last easy thing to do is enhance your curb appeal. The exterior of a house is just as important as the interior of a house. When people come to view your house, the outside is the first thing people will see, and their first impression of the house. Make sure the lawn is mowed, the sidewalk and driveway are free of debris and clutter. You can even pressure wash the exterior of your home and driveway as well.
