Staging Your Home On A Budget

by Steven Stephens

When you need to sell your current home quickly, staging can be an effective tool to help you increase the number of offers that you receive. You may think that you don't have enough money to invest in the staging of your home, but there are some simple and affordable things that you can do to help make your home more attractive to potential buyers.

Here are three budget-friendly staging tasks that you can complete before you list your home on the real estate market if you want to make a quick sale.

1. Take the time to de-personalize your home.

While your family photographs and memorable items might mean the world to you, they can be a turnoff for potential buyers. As a buyer walks through your home, you want them to be able to picture themselves living in the space.

This can be difficult when a potential buyer is confronted with your wedding photos or photos of your children in each room. Taking the time to de-personalize your home by removing photographs and other personal items is a free way to help you make your home more attractive in the future.

2. Empty out your closets.

One of the things that potential buyers are looking for as they view homes is the existence of ample storage. When your closets are stuffed with linens, games, or other items, it can appear as though your home doesn't have enough storage to accommodate the needs of the people living there.

Filled closets could turn potential buyers off when it comes to your home, so taking the time to empty out or organize your closets can be a great staging tool. Try placing some of your stored items in a storage unit until you complete your move in order to prevent the appearance of limited storage from preventing offers on your home.

3. Place white linens in your bathroom.

While your colorful towels and shower curtain might add personality to your bathroom, it's always best to have white linens in your bathroom when you are showing your home to potential buyers.

White linens help to create the illusion of space, giving potential buyers a more spa-like feel as they walk through the bathrooms in your home. New towels and shower curtains are an affordable investment that could pay off by producing multiple offers on your property.

If you need to sell your home quickly but you don't have a lot of money to invest in staging, take the time to de-personalize your home, empty out filled closets, and place white linens in each bathroom. These cheap tasks will help make your home more attractive to potential buyers.


About Me

Selling Your House?

Hi, my name is Jessica Williams. Thanks for stopping by my website. I have moved a number of times and in three cases I have had to sell a house. The first time I sold a house I listed it with a real estate agent. The second time I did it myself. The third time I listed with a realtor. You can probably ascertain from this information that I found listing with an agent the better route. I managed to sell my house by owner that one time, but never again. There is too much involved and too great a risk for errors. There’s a bunch of paperwork and preparation that goes into selling a house, more then I imagined. My goal here is to share my experiences with you. My hope is to make your experience as pleasant as possible.
