Are you getting ready to put your Randolph County NC home for sale on the market?
The appearance of your home is one of the most important keys to selling it.

but hiring a professional stager could set you back between $50 to $150 per hour. Fortunately, there are ways you can stage your home by yourself without spending too much.

5 Cheap Ways to Stage Your Randolph County NC Home for Sale | Waynette Araj

Here are 5 simple and cheap tips on how to organize and stage the usually cluttered places in your Randolph County home:

  1. Bedroom closet

A cluttered and disorganized closet looks small. Remove outdated clothes and accessories that you have not worn in a year or more and place them neatly in a storage unit. Remove items that do not belong in a wardrobe closet like sports equipment, papers, folders and other junk. Organize and display your in-season wardrobe as if it’s in your favorite store or fashion magazine.

  1. Kitchen

The kitchen is the new hub or center of the home since it has the highest traffic volume. Make your kitchen look neat and orderly by removing small appliances that you do not use on a daily basis. Remove bills, mail, magazines and store them in a tidy basket. Clear the table and counters of any clutter. Just leave a bowl of fresh fruit or a vase of flowers to make your kitchen look fresh and appealing.

  1. Home office

If your home office has lots of books, magazines and files or is cluttered with computers, printers and other office equipment, it makes the area look smaller. Get rid of magazines and newspapers, donate unwanted books to charity, switch out a desktop for a laptop and arrange computer cables in an organized manner. You will be amazed at the big changes and how bigger your home office will look.

  1. Garage

The garage is usually the catch-all for unused items in your Randolph County NC Home. Pull out everything from the garage and start decluttering your garage. Segregate remaining items into categories like car accessories, yard tools, camping equipment, sports equipment, etc. One trick in organizing the garage is to use the elevated space like putting storage racks on the walls or making a false attic in the ceiling.

  1. Yard

The curb appeal of your Randolph County NC Home for Sale can make or break the entire deal. Create a great first impression of your home by making simple outdoor improvements, mowing the lawn, removing debris, fallen leaves and clutter and repairing and repainting your fence and front door. Place colorful plants and flowers along your walkway to make it stand out.

Staging your Randolph County home for sale need not be expensive and stressful.
All it takes is a little organization and a few changes to make your home look move-in ready.

Great advice, Waynette.

     Get rid of the stuff!  Rent a storage room if necessary.  People need to see the house, not your belongings.

This is very good advice for home sellers. These are also good points for home owners who have no plans to sell. All should want their home to look the best.

These are great inexpensive ways to stage a home for sale, Waynette. Of course, it would be easier if the seller would hire a listing agent.
