When you sell something, you expect to make a profit on the sale. It doesn’t quite always work this way when you sell a home. While you may count the sale of your home as “all profit,” there will be some significant upfront costs that you’ll incur when it comes to selling your home. Planning the sale of your home can help you to manage these expenses and sell your home faster.  


Upfront Costs


The first costs that you will incur when you’re selling a home will usually be of the cosmetic and repair nature. These will include things like painting, small fixes, and 


Paint Your Home


Although you may love the bright green living room, another homebuyer may not. It would be worth your investment to stage your home well. An important renovation might include painting the rooms on the inside of your home neutral colors. Refreshing the trim on your windows also helps to make the interior of your home shine. You can paint around the windows for a quick update to the inside of your home. Paint can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to over $1,000.  


Clean Everywhere


If you wash your windows, it could add some value to your home and help it sell faster. When the windows sparkle, they will undoubtedly make a very positive impact on the buyer. Get rid of dust, dirt and grime, especially from the obvious spaces in your home.  


Landscaping


The outside of your home is also very important. Do some quick yard maintenance for a better look for the exterior of your home. Rake up the leaves. Trim the bushes. Mow the lawn. Make your home appear as pristine as possible. 


Repairs


Anything that needs to be repaired in the home should be. This will help you out during the inspection period. Things like leaky sinks, cracks in the walls, and holes in the roof are obvious and should be addressed before your home even goes on the market.                  


Stage Your Home


Take the time to make sure all of your furniture is arranged in a neat manner. The rugs should be streamlined with the chairs and tables. If things look a little cramped in any room, either take a piece of furniture out or move the room around in order to make it appear more spacious. 


Keep Your Utilities Running


If you need to move out before you get your home sold, make sure that you leave your utilities on. This way, there’s lights and heat available for potential buyers as they walk through the home to discover if they can see themselves living there.

To sell your home, one of the essential things for you is to stage your home. While the price of your home is often dictated by the market and your own surroundings, the people who are going to buy your home ultimately need to have some attraction to it.


The question is- can you stage your home yourself, or do you need to leave the home staging to the professionals? Either way, you may need to spend a little bit of cash in order for the home staging to actually work well. 


Declutter


The first step in the home staging process is for you to declutter the home. Get rid of anything that’s taking up space, or making the home appear “junked up.” No one can picture themselves living in a cluttered home. 


Hire A Maid


If you’re doing the home staging yourself, one of the most important aspects of getting your home ready is making it clean. A maid service can provide that deep clean that you may not have time to do yourself. This service is definitely worth the investment to make your home presentable to potential buyers.


Professional Home Staging Is Pricey


Professional home staging can cost quite a bit, (we're talking thousands of dollars.) You can do a lot yourself to stage your home. You don’t need to spend top dollar in order to have your home staged appropriately. Just know that homes that are staged correctly (whether professionally or by you) sell for more.


Staging Gives Buyers Vision


It may be hard for buyers to envision a room any other way than how you currently have it set up. People may not be able to picture a chair in the corner or a bed in a different position. You can play around with the furniture in your home to make the rooms look best. 


Add Some Paint


One of the easiest things that you can do to stage your home is to paint it. Even if you simply put a fresh coat on the doors, it can really add some appeal to the home. If you have the time, you should paint the rest of the home’s interior as well. Buyers are most attracted to neutral colors. If you have any rooms that are oddly colored, or looking rough due to age, some paint can really bring life into the home.  


Make Each Room Inviting

When potential buyers walk through the home, you don’t want them to simply skim the house without checking out each individual room. See what draws you into the room, whether it be lighting, a fireplace, or an ornament on the door. Any of these small touches can make a big difference when you stage your home.
