When you’re in the market for a new house, you’re likely looking to spend as little money as possible selling your old one. We totally get it—you want to put that hard-earned money toward your new place!
Unfortunately, you’re going to have to spend money for a successful home sale. The good news is though, there are plenty of resources available to help you stick to your budget. Use these budget-friendly staging tips to make sure you don’t skip out on the most important step to preparing your home for the market!
1) Declutter & depersonalize.
Do you know how much money it costs to clean and organize your house? Zero dollars. Decluttering and depersonalizing your space is an effective, yet inexpensive way to set up your home for universal appeal.
Be sure to hit not just the highly visible areas, like the countertops and floors, but also the closets, cabinets, and other storage areas buyers are going to want to see. Pack up any excess belongings you don’t need right now and remove anything that reminds buyers they’re in your home—photos, memorabilia, etc.
2) Focus your budget on the rooms that make or break home sales.
Realistically, you’re going to have to spend some money on staging if you want to get the best offer for your home. The bulk of your budget should be put into the rooms that matter the most—the bathroom and kitchen.
Simple upgrades can make a big difference, so those are a good place to start. A fresh coat of paint, new metal fixtures (knobs, handles, faucets), and a few bright, natural accents will work wonders. Don’t forget to deep clean these areas as well. A messy kitchen or bathroom is a quick turn off you won’t be able to recover from.
