Selling a home can be stressful. You want potential buyers to instantly fall in love with your home, because it’s everything they are looking for. One way to make your home look its best is to hire a professional home stager, but this can be a costly solution.
Here are 5 quick and easy ways to stage your home yourself so that it sells quickly!
- Boost curb appeal.
We all know how important a first impression can be, and your house is no different. The home tour doesn’t just begin when they walk in the front door. As soon as potential buyers turn into the driveway, they are already deciding if this is a place they could call home. Pay attention to landscaping and play up a welcoming environment on your front porch with a clean welcome mat, blooming potted plants, and a bright porch swing.
- Ditch the clutter.
A cluttered home can give the impression that the home is too small to be functional. Even if you are moving because your family has outgrown the space, streamline things so that the house can be appreciated for all it has to offer instead of making it appear more cramped than it actually is.
- Use a neutral color palette.
We know your lime green bedroom walls really work for you, but they may not work for everyone. You wouldn’t want a buyer to walk out of the house because they couldn’t imagine themselves living in a house with green walls. A fresh coat of neutral paint can give a quick facelift without breaking the bank.
- Forgo the personal touches.
All of the things that make your home your personal space are great. Your toddler’s finger paintings, your salt and peppershaker collection, and your sequined picture frames all make your home feel like home, but you want this space to feel like it could be someone else’s home. Leaving these items out can make it easier for the potential buyers to see themselves in the home.
- Let the professionals handle the cleaning.
Even if you’ve already moved into a new space, hiring a Honomu cleaning service on a recurring basis is a great idea. You’ll never have to worry about dust accumulation, grubby floors, or dirty windows when you have a Honomu maid service cleaning every 2 weeks or so.
