If your home is on the market, you already know that you need to stage it properly to drum up buyer interest and sell it at the right price.
But what can you do that’s above and beyond the everyday home staging tips you see everywhere?
Home Staging Hacks From the Pros
Some of LaPorta’s best tips include:
- Paint over dated tile. “A low-cost alternative to replacing the tile is to use paint. First coat the tiles with a high-adhesion primer. Next, brush on a special ceramic epoxy covering,” says LaPorta.
- Stain outdated cabinets rather than replacing them. “First, apply the stain in even strokes, going with the grain of the wood. Add some stylish hardware, and your kitchen will have the up-to-date look that buyers love, for less than $200,” she says.
- Update your worn brick patio. “First, roll a light coat of paint onto the bricks. Next, lightly spray them with water and then dab them before they dry to give them an outdoor look,” says LaPorta.
- Improve “flow” in your house. “Start with the floor. Join two rooms together by using the most cost-efficient material in the book: vinyl tile. First, use a snap-line to create a center point between the two rooms. Next, the fun part: Peel and stick the new vinyl tile down, and watch your kitchen and dining room go from old to sold,” she says.
