EASY and INEXPENSIVE Ways to Stage Your Home

If you plan on selling your home in the near future, you may be thinking about ways to make improvements to your space to help it better appeal to potential buyers. As your team of experienced real estate agents in Eldon, MO, we pride ourselves on helping homeowners prepare their homes for a successful sale. If you're thinking about selling your home near Eldon, MO, it's time to start prepping your space for potential buyers!


Pack Up Personal Belongings

Your personal belongings can take away from a buyer's experience as they enter your home for sale. A potential buyer may get distracted by your family photos on the wall - which may make it hard for them to imagine their family in your space. If you have religious or controversial items on display, now is a good time to get those packed away, as well. You don't want a once interested buyer to leave with a bad taste in their mouth due to an item or picture that offended them. This is a great chance for you to get a head start on packing as you get those personal items boxed up!

Deep Clean Your Space

Before you list your home for sale, ensure your space is spic and span. A deep cleaning of every room is important as you sell your space. Nothing is more off-putting to a potential buyer than a dirty home. If you don't care about your space enough to clean it on a regular basis - a buyer may assume you haven't performed regular maintenance or upkeep to your space, either.

Organize Your Storage Areas

While you may do a quick sweep of the home and stuff some clutter items in the nearest closet or cabinet - this isn't a great idea. Many potential buyers will look through a cabinet or open a closet door to get a feel for the size/style or storage space for the home. If this space is cluttered or jam-packed, a buyer may get the impression that there is not adequate storage space available in the home. Don't give potential buyers the wrong idea about your space!

Keep Countertops Clear

We know it is easy for mail, bags, and snacks to pile up on the counters - especially in a home that you live in. Before you have a showing, try to de-clutter your countertops. No clutter on the counters can give your entire space a clean and organized feel. If your home is for sale, consider taking a few minutes each night to clear off the table and/or countertops to ensure your space is always show-ready. This can help avoid a mad cleaning dash at the last minute if an unexpected showing gets scheduled for your property.

These are just a few easy ways to prepare your home for the potential buyers that will soon be in your space. Preparing to sell your home in Eldon, MO is an important step that is missed by many. While staging may seem like an expensive step, all of these examples have no cost associated with them - just a little time investment. When you are ready to sell, contact Devine & Associates and we can help advise on any improvements or staging that should be done, get your home listed, and market your property to potential buyers.
