BUDGET FRIENDLY LOW OR NO COST STAGING TIPS

Staging is a must in today’s real estate market. Think of your property as the product and staging as the packaging. 

The cost of staging can vary widely depending on the stager, the available budget, the property, and the buyer

expectations of the property. 

But what if you have little or no budget for staging… here are low or no cost tips that will help you stage your property

 to sell.

CLEAN IS BETTER THAN NEW

The first low or no cost tip to staging your property is to deep clean. Clean everything. Clean the ceilings, walls,

windows, and floors.  Clean air grills/returns, the light fixtures, and the hardware. Clean the inside of cabinets and

closets. Clean the upholstered furniture, hard surfaces, and pet areas. Clean the interior, exterior, garage, and storage

spaces. If budget were no concern then everything pristinely new would be a possibility. However, buyers are more

repulsed by a kitchen that is fingernail deep in filth than if the faucet or cabinet pulls are sporting the latest style. 

MAKE THE MOST OF WHAT YOU HAVE

The second low or no cost tip to staging your property is to make the most of everything you have. Now that e

verything is clean, shop your home and create a layout that creates the illusion of a light and airy space.

Remember less is more in staging. If you own to much stuff  severely edit. If the whatever does not work in the

space – remove it. If you have too little to work with, rarely the case, then ask friends and family to loan you

needed pieces.  

 

STAGE THE EXTERIOR

The third low or no cost tip to staging your property is to stage the exterior of your property. Curb appeal is the first

impression your home makes on potential buyers.  If you can’t get buyers out of the car, they won’t see the spectacular

staging job you did inside. 

Clean the exterior, weed beds, trim shrubs, and prune trees. Do any needed repairs that is within your skill level such

as straightening flowerbed stones or pavers.  

FINAL LOW OR NO COST STAGING TIPS

Of course this isn’t everything that can be done to properly stage a property but it is an excellent place to start

if budget is tight or nonexistent. 

Other things to consider while staging your home are:

Space planning or layout

Color story for cohesiveness

Avoid clutterings space

Keep it clean

Play to the senses
