How Do You Stage Your House
No one wants to buy a dirty, old- looking house, especially in states like Texas. So if you’re planning to sell your house, make sure that it looks presentable and well- maintained. Successfully staging your house can help sell it much faster. But how would you stage your house on a limited budget?
Check your bathroom walls for any grimes. Buyers, or anyone for that matter, don’t like grimy bathroom walls. Make sure to clean it before selling your house. You can mix a spray bottle with one part water and one part bleach. Spray it on the wall and leave it for at least 30 minutes. Make sure to scrub it to ensure that any remaining mold will be removed. You may also apply a fresh coat of paint to make your bathroom wall look better.
Make sure to pack away any of your personal items. Remove all of your personal items from the house. It has to look like a model house if you want to attract buyers. Depersonalizing your house will help buyers imagine it as their own home. So make sure that you remove any of your photos and even family photos. It will distract them and would make them feel like they’re visitors instead of clients.
Your master bedroom should be appealing for both sexes. You will never know who’s going to buy your house. So make sure that you remove anything that may seem too gender- specific. You can try painting your walls with a neutral color and choose the bedding that matches it well. Over accessorizing your bedrooms with items that are too masculine or feminine might be a red flag to your buyers.
Your house should look clean and tidy. The cheapest way to stage your house is to make sure that everything is sparkling clean. Make sure to get rid of all the clutters in your house. Make sure that you clean the floor and windows really well until it just glimmers. Homeowners in cities like Dallas usually hire a pro to ensure that most of the tedious stuff can be done, especially if their house is a bit bigger than the rest.
Style your house, especially the dining room table. Your dining room table is one of the parts of your house that often gets left out. Make sure to decorate it and make it appealing to the eye. You may try decorating flowers at the center to make it look presentable.
Check your floors for any dirt or stains. Give your floors a thorough cleaning. Steam clean your carpets if necessary. You may consider refinishing your wood floors if they’re in a bad condition. If you don’t have any budget for it, a great way to hide it is by strategically placing area rugs on floor areas that are in poor shape.
