Staging a home can be one of the most effective tools for selling a home but sometimes it can blow a brokers or realtors marketing budget. Hiring a professional stager is always the best choice but sometimes it’s just not feasible. Thankfully there are a number of cost effective ways for you to stage a home without a professional.
Clean really well
Hire the best cleaning crew you can get to make your home look and smell great. This will make the house much more inviting.
Hide sellers personal items
You want buyers to feel like it could be their potential home. This is hard to do if there are a number of pictures or other personal items that fill the house. You want your house to show like a model home.
Rearrange furniture and clear clutter
Sometimes you have too much stuff in a room. This isn’t a welcoming sight for buyers. Rearrange furniture and clear the clutter to make a more welcoming feeling for buyers as they walk though.
Upgrade the curb appeal
Don’t forget about the exterior of the house. After all, it’s the first thing the buyer will see. Clean the exterior, and landscape to help bring out the appeal. You can add mulch to areas that are looking grim or small trees to help bring out some natural beauty.
If you get stuck on things to do and can’t seem to stage the house correctly, contact a professional. Coldwell Banker is always willing to assist in referring the best in Santa Fe.
