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 Remove outdated clothes and accessories that you have not worn in a year or more and place them neatly in a storage unit.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.

How to Set the Stage for Selling Your Randolph County Home

The Real Estate Staging Association is always telling the world that when you are selling your home, you can expect to spend 73% less time on the market if you use the services of a professional staging company. Although this is an outcome everyone aims for, the cost of full bore professional staging can be a budget-cruncher.

A compromise solution is to combine a little personal elbow grease with some of the ‘inside’ tricks stagers use. When selling your home in Randleman as quickly as possible is the goal, it’s worth following through with these staging pointers:

Magic Act

Everyday living creates clutter — but to establish the look of a well maintained, move-in-ready home, the debris has to disappear. You don’t need to be David Copperfield or Houdini, but you will need a dedicated place to store all that stuff out of sight. No place on the property? Go ahead and rent some temporary storage space.

Bland is Better

The Swiss are known for remaining neutral despite centuries of European strife. When it comes to selling your Randolph County home, avoiding controversy can serve you just as well. ‘Neutral’ means sticking to inoffensive color schemes. Stagers know that when it comes to matters of taste, extreme decorating styles tend to drive off some potential buyers. When it comes to selling your home, creams and beiges create the kind of clean look that’s more universally appealing.

Consistency Wins

When the budget is tight, setting a theme throughout your home may seem beyond reach. So instead of replacing a lot of furniture, see if making subtle changes in home accessories and textiles can’t accomplish wonders. Selling your home in Randleman quickly can hinge on such small touches as placing bunches of uniformly colored flowers with matching throws in several rooms. It can create the kind of uniform look that stagers strive to achieve.
