How to stage a home on a budget?

Have you had your eyes on the property market for a while now? Planning to sell your home?

Well, with buyer registrations consistently rising month-on-month, being a seller couldn’t come at a better time for you, but before that we would recommend considering staging your home so that you can WOW your buyers into a sale of your choice!

Worried about budget restrictions?

Don’t worry we’ll help you, here are some surefire tips that are definitely going to show you how to stage a home on a budget and wow your buyers!

Sounds good right? So, let’s get right into it…

Get those repairs in order!

So, first things first it's important to look around and make sure there are no cracks, creaks or leakages as those are definitely going to scare the buyers away!

We recommend repairing your home with help of an esteemed professional who can fix things for you in a packaged deal which is also on a budget - Oh, wait why not consider calling Allsopp & Allsopp Home Maintenance?

We’ve got packages that’ll come and repair not one, not two but several repairs under a budget - worth taking a look right?

Declutter your space!

Would you like to come home to an unclean space? No, right!

Neither do your buyers, so trust us when we tell you, decluttering is definitely the way to go. A clean home is an attractive home that’ll also come with an attractive price - we promise you!

Rearrange your furniture!

Did you know that arranging your furniture in certain ways can open up or close your space, it's all in the details. So, maybe consider a little Feng-Shui or consider arranging your furniture in a manner that’s open and inviting.

We recommend that you avoid keeping the back of sofas or chairs at the entrance of your living room or dining room - as that gives an uninviting presence. What we’d suggest is arranging your furniture toward the side of the walls so your entrance is open and welcoming.

Splash some colour!

A fresh coat of paint can go a long way, trust us!

So, if you’ve got a room you’re pretty proud of, we suggest repainting it to add that extra glow and excitement to your home.

Colours always awaken a space and the right choice can make all the difference, so if you are trying to open up your space more - we suggest using brighter colours like whites, pastels or yellows and blues. We’d suggest avoiding using darker shades as they can make a room a bit smaller, even when it comes to furniture - if you’ve got darker furniture, we suggest painting it a brighter colour.

All you have to do is purchase a tin of paint, and paint one coat, that’s really all you need!

Light up your space!

As great as your space probably looks by now, we definitely would suggest bringing in a little more light and trust us - this won’t cost you anything!

Open up those curtains, let the natural sunlight in and try to add little accents of light around your home, this could be fairy lights or small lamps, it makes a huge difference!

Stage your space - quite literally

Apart from all the external factors to consider while staging, we suggest making your beds by adding fresh sheets, add a little pzazz and consider adding some cutlery on your dining table.

It's all about making your buyers feel welcome!

It's all in the details!

As great as the top tips are, it's important to remember that the beauty is all in the details so we suggest adding a few things here and there that would really elevate your home!

It could include having small simple photo frames in certain places of the house, scented candles, maybe hanging a bright and colourful painting, rearranging the plots in your lawn or in your balcony, adding fresh flowers or a bouquet, or you could simply even make sure you have a colourful rug in place!

It really boils down to all the little things!
