5 No Cost Home Staging Tips
Here's a great article about home staging on a budget. You don't need to spend a lot renting fancy staging furniture. You probably already have stuff that looks okay, you just need a strategy. Here are the 5 things mentioned in the original article, with my comments.
1. Clean, clean, clean - This one should be automatic, but you'd be surprised. Clean the home well and often. It's a nice detail and people WILL notice if it's not clean.
2. Depersonalize the house - People want to imagine themselves living in the space, not feel like they are intruding in a stranger's home. Remove the family photos and the kids wall of fame.
3. Pack — and pack some more - All the knick-knacks and collectables just look like clutter to a potential buyer. And all the "organized" piles of stuff - papers, magazines, junk corners. Either get rid of it, or pack it up and move it, but don't leave it in the home.
4. Manicure outdoor spaces - The approach to the house is literally the first impression. You don't want your buyers forming a to-do list before they even get inside. Show them how clean the property can look.
5. Lighten up - This is one of those things I always try to do as an agent - get to a home a few minutes early and turn on all the lights. It makes a huge difference in how the rooms feel. Bright = open and inviting and "homey."
