The 5 Cheapest Ways to Stage Your Home

For people looking to sell their home in San Diego, where the housing market can be challenging, staging the home is crucial. Appearance can make the difference on whether or not your home is sold. These house-staging ideas will keep the cost to a minimum, enabling you to reach a greater financial reward when the house is finally sold and off the market.

  1. Pack personal belongings. You need to de-personalize the home in order for the potential buyer to be able to envision personalizing it. It opens up your home to a variety of people rather than only the ones who have similar tastes as you. This includes removing family pictures, heirlooms, and other belongings that reflect you.
  2. De-clutter. The home should look like it is a model home; not a home being lived in. Box up your house and put the boxes in the garage or in a storage unit. Experts suggest that you de-clutter until only 90% of the home remains.
  3. Paint the rooms. A new paint job does a world of wonders to a room, making it look newer, cleaner, and brighter. Neutral colors are recommended. Consider painting the trim around windows and doors and floor.
  4. Clean. You want the house shining. Prospective homebuyers will have a hard time looking beyond the dirtiness or smell of an unclean home. Clean every feature of the home: the windows, doors, kitchen appliances, and fans. And add an air freshener to make the home smell fresh.
  5. Focus on the curb appeal. The outside of the home is just as important as the inside. Mow the lawn, add new flowers, and clean the sidewalk. One easy and cheap fix to help with the curb appeal is adding mulch.
