8 Cheap Home Staging Ideas

If you’re getting ready to sell your home, home staging is probably at the top of your list. There are some of our favorite tips for how to stage without breaking the bank.

Pack Up Stuff

One of the cheapest and best ways to stage your home is to get rid of your stuff. It know it feels counter-intuitive to take your personal things out of your home to sell it, but you need to let people breath and see themselves in your home. When they see your pictures, collectibles, knick-knacks and clutter – it’s more difficult for them to visualize themselves living in your home.

Neutralize Rooms

If you have a lot of style, you may have to tone a few things down. You can do that by painting any room a neutral color. Paint is an inexpensive way to make your home feel bright, light and airy.

Scrub, Clean & Open Windows

Grab some soap, bleach and water – clean the windows, baseboards and especially areas prone to making the house smell badly. Kitchens, ovens, bathrooms and tile – are all places that need a good scrub-down. Open your windows and let some fresh air in. Buy some flowers before your first showing or light a candle. The extra freshness will create a welcoming environment for prospective buyers.

Grab a Host & Go Outside

Curb appeal is one of the best ways to get buyers interested in your home. Borrow a pressure washer and spray down your front porch, sidewalks, siding and your driveway. If you have weeds, pull them – if your windows are dirty, wash them. Add some flowers to your planters and hang a wreath.

With these cheap tips and some elbow grease, your home will sell in no time. It only takes a little bit of extra effort to make your home attractive to potential buyers – and that doesn’t include dumping tons of money into your home.
