When you’re putting your house on the market, preparation and presentation can be the key to boosting your home’s value. Just because you want top dollar for your home doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money to get the buyer’s attention. Here are some inexpensive home staging ideas that will get your home sold fast.
Homebuyers read into a clean home. If the home doesn’t look clean during the open house, this can allude to how the home has been taken care of over the years. A deep cleaning is a great idea to get rid of dirt and unwanted odors.
A crowded house can stop the buyers from being able to envision themselves in the home. So, it is important to put clutter and personal items into storage. A good rule of thumb is to pretend the buyer will open everything… including the closet!
The curb appeal is the buyer’s first impression of the home, so it has to be great. Whether it is an open house or web listing, the front yard is the first thing buyers see. Planting flowers and mowing the lawn can draw the buyer’s attention. Power washing the siding and walkways is a good idea as well. Make it pop!
Be sure to allow for plenty of light, if not natural add in some lamps for a cozy feel. Light affects mood and can make the buyer feel more at home. Upgrading curtains is an inexpensive adjustment that makes the space more luxurious.
Bulky and extra furniture can make a home feel small and crowded, add room by putting some into storage. Personal workspace may be essential to potential buyers now that more people are working from home so consider adding in a functional office space. You can do this by carving out a nook in a spare bedroom or living room.
