How to Stage Your Home on a Budget
Staging your home is another way that you can prepare to sell your home, if you are looking to sell your home. This also pertains to selling your home and making sure that it appeals to all who are interested in buying the home. If you are going to stage your home, here are some tips to keep in mind.
- Focus On The Main Rooms
When beginning to stage a home, always start with the main rooms first. We all agree that the room that is the most important to interest buyers is the living room. Start there. Once the living room is done, move on to the main bedroom, then the bathroom, and then the kitchen.
Even if you plan on staging the entire inside (or outside) of the home, these are the 3 most important rooms in the house to stage and prepare.
- Think About The Buyers
When you are going through the staging process, it’s important to keep in mind who you are staging the home for. It is always going to be the buyers, whom you are staging the home for. Keep in mind that the personal taste or style is not always going to be the same as you. Make sure you are staging the house for them.
When decorating, stay away from convoluted styles, stick to classic and simplistic looks. Declutter and rearrange furniture as much as possible so that it’s easier for buyers to look and see the whole inside (or outside) of the house. Also, be sure to remove any personal items that may be on walls, counters, shelves or tables.
- Lastly, Touch Up The Outside Just In Case
While you’re spending all this time staging the inside of your home, don’t forget about the outside of your home just in case the interest buyer wants to see it. After all, the outside is what potential buyers will see at first.
Clean all the windows and clear or clean walkways/driveways. If you have a porch, dust off the steps and consider adding a welcome mat. Also, it won’t hurt to plant new flowers, trim lawns and shrubbery, and add landscape lighting.
