If you are currently thinking about putting your home on the market, you might have heard about the importance of staging a home to make it more appealing for potential buyers. However, you might not have a lot of extra money to spend on extra decor for your home. Luckily, there are a few ways that you can stage your home on a budget to make it extra appealing to potential buyers without spending a fortune.     

1. Check Out the Dollar Stores

Check out your local dollar stores to look for decorative items that will make your home look nice. Inexpensive throw pillows, candle holders and other decorative items can still add a nice touch without being costly. You can also look for things like inexpensive, fresh new curtains and shower curtains that can make your home look fresh without being too expensive.

2. Look for Used Items

You don't have to buy all of your home staging items brand new. Instead, check out flea markets, yard sales and online classifieds to find furniture and decorative items that will suit your budget and make your home look great.

3. Bring the Outdoors In

Using seasonal flowers and plants can help you make your home look nice without you having to spend a dime. If you simply clip some of the flowers that are growing in your yard and put them in a simple vase or jar, you can add some cheer for free. You can also use things like pine cones and other outdoor items on the mantle, your tables and more to make your house feel like "home" to those who are thinking about buying it.

Staging a home is important, but it doesn't have to be expensive. For more advice about selling your home, contact us for assistance at 248-9653 or visit us online at www.anchoragehomesearch.com.
