If you need to spruce up your home for showings, you will be surprised at how big of a difference you can make by following these free or inexpensive tips for staging:


  1. Pack up personal belongings, such as family photos and keepsakes, to give visitors a chance to imagine themselves living there.

  2. Clear out the closets so that they are not full which will give the impression of more storage space.

  3. Emphasize the foyer with an attractive vase and flowers. Adding a cozy throw blanket or pillow will amp up the "homey" feel of the living space.

  4. Rearrange the kitchen, making it appear as large as possible and clutter-free. Typically, people prefer large spacious kitchen areas.

  5. Organize your kitchen cabinets because people normally ask to look in the cabinets. This will allow them to get a more accurate idea of the storage space.

  6. Reduce the clutter in each room by packing up the excessive accessories like toys, papers, and small pieces of furniture.

  7. Get rid of lingering odors from foods or pets. For pet odors, baking soda is helpful; for food odors, try grinding lemon rinds in the garbage disposal. Another effective method to eliminate food odors is to pour heated salt water down the drain twice a week. Begin this a couple of weeks before showing the house, and consider using a light, clean air freshener.
