Tips to Help You Prepare Your Home to Sell When You’re Running Low on Cash

Getting your home ready to sell takes effort. And the more work you do to get your home ready before you list, the higher the likelihood that your home will sell quickly and profitably.

But prepping your home to sell can get expensive. So what do you do when you need to sell your home, but you don’t have a ton of money to work with?

A recent article from outlined tips to get your home prepared to sell when you’re working on a tight budget, including:


Paint the right rooms

Painting is an affordable way to transform a space. But if you have a limited budget for painting, and don’t have enough to paint your entire home, it’s important to choose the rooms you paint wisely. Consider spending your budget on rooms that will have the most impact, like your living room. Or rooms that require less paint (and less budget) like bathrooms or the kitchen, which generally have more cabinets than wall space.


Jazz up your wood floors

Refinishing wood floors can be expensive. But you can still restore your floors, no matter what your budget. Just mop the floors with a water-based polyurethane wood floor restorer. Not only does it add a high-gloss finish, but it can also fill in scratches, making floors feel both shiny and new.


Hire a professional stager at a discount

If you’re working on a tight budget, chances are you won’t have the money to hire a professional to stage your entire space. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get their insights! Ask for the stager’s hourly rate, pay them for a few hours of their time, and then ask for their advice on how you can stage the house to sell.

You don't have to worry about this when you hire us because we'll take care of your initial consultation.
