Effective Home Staging Tips for Under $100
A tried-and-true method for selling homes more quickly and for a greater price is home staging. However, if you have several properties on the market at once, home staging can be an expensive expense. But there are several very easy—and inexpensive—ways to improve the appearance of a house without needing to make significant structural or technological advancements. You may remove that house from the market using these ten home staging suggestions for less than $100

1. Lay out the welcome mat
Although it may sound cliche, a simple gesture like placing a welcome mat can have a significant impact on how a prospective buyer perceives a house. Potential buyers evaluate every feature of the house they can view as soon as they step out of their car. Make sure they have a positive first impression by formally greeting them into their new residence. Use your welcome mat to express your creativity! This will give the house some personality and make it stick out more.

2. Prepare the Table
When prospective buyers tour a house, they are imagining their lives after they move there. How would a Thanksgiving meal be prepared in this house? What would breakfasts on Sundays look like? When deciding whether a house has the potential to be their next home, people ask themselves these questions. Setting the table for a special holiday dinner or perhaps something more everyday or basic will help your imagination come to life as a real estate agent. Make sure to fill the house with the aroma of baking cookies!

3. Put House Plants
Numerous studies on the recuperative benefits of home plants have been done recently. Plants not only reduce stress and elevate mood, but they also help clean the air and give the space a sense of purpose. The advantages are endless. Why wouldn't you decorate your house with plants?

4. Hang wall arts/Paintings
Homes feel cozier and more inviting when there is art on the walls, especially in bigger spaces. On the other hand, if you want to make a space appear larger, you can do so by hanging art on the walls. The power of art to change a space to your taste is truly astounding.

5. Hang a mirror
Although it's often known that mirrors give rooms a feeling of openness, they can actually have an even more significant role in house staging. What better approach to let a prospective buyer envision themselves living there than to let them actually see themselves there?

6. Get out the knickknacks
Even while it's crucial to avoid having a cluttered feeling in your home, you still want some aesthetic items. IKEA offers beautiful minimalistic and contemporary decor that works well in almost any home. Additionally, their pricing are really unequaled. However, if you don't have access to an IKEA nearby, a short trip to your neighborhood Target or Home Goods would suffice.

7. Add some throw pillows and blankets
Throw blankets and pillows are a must-have for any interior design magazine. Why? They may unify a space and provide the impression that it is a real living area rather than merely a display. Additionally, strategically covering some outdated pieces of furniture with a cushion or blanket helps modernize the room or, at the very least, detracts from any obvious eyesores.

8. Add some vases
Technology has many advantages, but it can also be incredibly stressful. Books, on the other hand, have a reputation for being more stress-relieving and, for many, even sentimental. By placing books throughout your home, you can assist guests in escaping the relentless draw of technology. Your home can be taken off the market with the help of that extra touch.

9. Display Books
Despite the many advantages of technology, it can also be a major source of stress. However, reading a book may often be more relaxing and even brings back memories for many people. Place some books around your house to help guests escape the never-ending tug of electronics. Your home may be taken off the market thanks to that little extra touch.

10. Don’t neglect the bathrooms
Add some finishing touches to the bathroom, last but not least. The house feels move-in ready with its white hand towels that are immaculate and plentiful in toilet paper. You're in need of suggestions. Just recall any time you have visited a hotel. Because, let's face it, appreciating the tiny extras in the bathroom is one of the finest parts of being in a hotel.
Therefore, use a few of these suggestions the next time you are having difficulties taking a house off the market. You'll be astonished at the impact just $100 can have.
