Every detail counts when it comes to selling your home. It always helps to be intentional about making your home appealing to potential home buyers. Of course, it always benefits your pockets even more when you can save a few dollars while doing so. Here are 5 budget friendly home staging tips to help boost the sale of your home.

Ensure your home consists of unisex décor throughout

You never who may show up at your door when it’s time for your first open house. Your home should appeal to buyers of both sexes. A home plastered in bubblegum pink might not appeal to everyone that walks through the door. Take the time out to remove certain features that come off as too gender-specific. Paint your walls a neutral color and choose décor and accessories that not only match but complement the design scheme as a whole. Allow potential homebuyers to use their imagination as they walk through the home so that they can see themselves decorating to their liking.

Update your outdated fireplace

The fireplace can be one of those features of your home that can easily be overlooked but can also be a top feature for those looking to buy. At first thought, updating your fireplace may sound time consuming and maybe even expensive, but don’t fret! It’s not as bad as you think. Take the time to remove the fireplace screen and wipe it down really well. After that, grab some soap and water and give the fireplace a much needed scrub. You can spruce up the bricks by grabbing a stone color enhancer to polish them and give them a little shine. Lastly, pick up a can of heat-resistant spray paint in a color that compliments your décor and go to town on the screen you wiped down. A quick coat of paint makes all of the difference. Before you know it, you won’t even recognize your old fireplace and it’ll be a hot selling point.

Update your appliances without the expense

Stainless steel appliances are on almost everyone’s checklist when on the search for a new home. Take your outdated appliances to the next level while on the budget. Don’t worry about purchasing a new dishwasher just for looks. Remove the front panels and clean them. Then pop on a stainless steel stick-on covering after cutting it to size. There you go. Good as new for about 20 bucks!



Make your space a blank canvas and get rid of the clutter

It makes it much more difficult to imagine how you will be living in a space when it is filled with clutter. It can add frustration to the decision making process if buyers cannot see the space entirely. Before showing your home, take the time to declutter and pack up any unnecessary items and even furniture that is taking up space.  The goal is to allow the potential home buyer to see themselves living in your home. Pack up your family photos and put away any keepsakes or memorabilia. Transform any areas of the rooms that heavily themed into more neutral spaces. You want to provide the home buyer with a blank canvas.

Do not neglect the outer appearance

The outside of your home is the very first thing buyers see either online or in person. You want to make sure that you’re offering curb appeal when placing your home up for sale. Plant a few flowers near the entrance way to give a more welcoming and homey feel. Make sure the yard is groomed at all times. No one wants to look at a home with an unkempt yard laced with weeds. Add a fresh coat of paint to your front door and replace doorknobs and doorbells for a more updated look.
 
With these simple tips, you’re sure to score a sale without breaking the bank.
