Make Your House Look Its Best With These Free Staging Tips

Home Staging Tips

Hiring a professional stager is one of the best ways to get your house looking its best before putting it on the market. However, a stager can cost thousands of dollars. Use these free staging tips in order to get your home looking great without emptying your bank account.

  • Clean it up – before you list your house, take a full weekend to really clean your house. Enlist the help of your family members, or any exceptionally nice friends, and scrub your house from top to bottom. Windows, door frames, ceiling fans, light fixtures, and blinds should all be cleaned. If potential buyers are distracted by dust bunnies in the corner of your house, they are much less likely to seriously consider putting in an offer.
  • Take down pictures – it is very hard for a potential buyer to envision their family in your house if pictures of your family are covering the walls. Take down family photos, kids art projects, and any other items that will remind a buyer that a family is living in the house.
  • Pack it up – whatever items you do not need for everyday living should be packed up and stored outside of the house, including any furniture that you do not need. The fewer items that are in your house, the larger each space will work.
  • Light it up – when taking photos of your house or showing it to potential buyers, turn on all the lights, including lights that are over your stove and inside your oven. The brighter your house is, the better you can show it off, which will help buyers take notice of how well you have maintained the entire property.
  • Head outside – buyers will not only be looking at the inside of your house. They will also be looking at the front yard and backyard. Manicure your outdoor spaces to make them look like the day that you moved in.
