Staging on a shoestring:

Tips from the pros for quick home sales (BPT) - The real estate market is improving which is welcome news for people wanting to sell their homes. This positive momentum alone isn’t enough to close a deal, though - a homeowner must make their properties appealing to potential buyers so they stand out from the competition. The good news is it’s easy to create an appealing atmosphere with a few staging tips and tricks from the experts.

personality of a home so buyers take notice of these attributes rather than the cluster of family photos or stack of magazines on the coffee table.

“When people ask what is most important about home staging, I say, ‘delete, delete, delete and clean, clean, clean’,” says Cathy Mansour, an interior designer and director at Aqua Hospitality Carpets. -”You can’t be too tidy or too well-scrubbed.”

“Carpet is warm and inviting in a family room,” says Karen Dembsky, owner of Peachtree Home Staging and president of Georgia Real Estate Staging Association. “Area rugs over hard surface floors make the room look smaller.”

Start by eliminating all clutter. Not only does it make your home look unorganized, clutter also makes it look much smaller. Pack away papers, knickknacks, excessive photography or decor, and extra furniture. Uncluttered rooms highlight the space and

While clean, fresh carpeting is an asset when it comes to selling a home, any floorcovering can be a drawback if it is dirty, dated or has an odor. Have carpets professionally cleaned before opening your doors for showings.

Once clutter is gone, it’s time to assess the flooring. More buyers desire carpet because it is comfortable, reduces noise and improves indoor air quality. Sellers should highlight this feature.

If repairs can’t be made, the carpet will need to be replaced. Dembsky stresses carpet is one of the most cost-efficient upgrades you can do when staging your home for sale. “Replacing carpet - you can always get your money back,” she says. “Just don’t put it in the bathroom - buyers don’t like that.”

Once your home is clean and clutter-free, it’s time to let in the light. Dark houses look drab no matter how stylish or clean they are. Pull back drapery, turn on the hallway sconces and update wattages on dim bulbs. About 100 watts per 50 square feet is a good target. If you have outdated lighting hardware or lampshades, consider affordable replacements - it’s typically an easy update that transforms a room instantly. Once you let in all that wonderful light, some walls may look dated. A fresh coat of paint can liven up a room and make it look modern and clean. While there’s often no need to repaint every interior wall, focusing on rooms where walls are dirty, damaged or feature a dated color can give your entire interior design a facelift.
