LIME REALTY GROUP wants to give you some tips on staging a home for sale and keep the cost down.
It’s true that staging a home increases its value on the open market, but the whole process can be expensive. If professional staging isn’t in your budget, never fear because it’s entirely possible to do some DIY staging that won’t break your bank and here’s some of our suggestions to help you do exactly that!
#2 – Avoid Renting A Storage Unit. Of course one of the best ways to make a home presentable is to de-clutter the place. If the home is being lived in, this presents a huge obstacle and is the most common problem people face. Jamming closets and other storage areas to absolute capacity won’t impress a potential buyer who wants to see those spaces just as open and inviting as a large room. It also limits their ability to judge how much of their own stuff they’ll be able to store.
And let’s face it, storage units can be a bit pricey. So why not consider some cheaper alternatives. Depending on the amount you need to stash, Clutter.com offers storage for as little as $7 per month and Makespace.com around $12 per month. These services make it easy too. They’ll send you boxes which you fill and mail back to them. When you want your stuff back, just ask and they’ll return it.
Another option is using storage totes. These totes hide all manner of clutter. You’d be surprised at how much you can fit in them and how convenient they are to stack on each other. In a storage space, they actually look neat and still allow you to showcase the space by confining the contents into their rectangular shapes. Even stacking a group of them against a wall in a garage will allow you to create the feeling of a clutter free space without paying the cost of a monthly storage unit fee.
