Staging your home wisely can help you attract a larger pool of potential buyers. When sellers properly stage their home, according to RIS Media’s data, they receive an average of $2 in increased sale price for every $1 they put into smart staging. Try these five methods to make the most of your dollars and get your home ready to show:

Neutralize

  • Paint walls in soothing colors
  • Aim for universal appeal in design
  • Keep accessories to a minimum

Modernize

  • Add updated handles on cabinets
  • Refinish hardwood floors
  • Consider replacing front door

Sanitize

  • Get carpets professionally cleaned
