Whether you’re selling a home in Forest Meadow Plantation or you’re selling one somewhere else, your real estate agent will tell you that you need to stage it for sale. Staging can help you sell a home faster—and for more money—and the best part? You don’t have to hire a professional home stager (unless you want to).
3 Super-Affordable Home Staging Ideas
First things first: Pack up the things you haven’t used in the past 12 months. There’s no need to clutter your home with them, particularly when buyers are coming to see the house. Your goal is to pack up 90 percent of your belongings (but this doesn’t mean furniture; see tip #1).
Super-Affordable Home Staging Idea #1: Minimize and Arrange Furniture
You want to show how spacious your home can be, so remove furniture that makes it look crowded or tough to navigate. Keep your furnishings at a minimum and arrange them so that each room has a distinct purpose.
Super-Affordable Home Staging Idea #2: Organize and Clean Out Your Closets
Buyers want to see that they’ll have plenty of storage space in closets, so remove half your clothes. If all your clothes are stuffed in there, buyers will have a hard time envisioning how much space is actually available.
Super-Affordable Home Staging Idea #3: Scrub and Deodorize Everything
Your house needs to sparkle from top to bottom. The rule of thumb: Potential buyers might not notice if you scrubbed your little heart out, but they’ll definitely notice if you didn’t.
