Spring is here! If you thinking about selling your home this Spring, make sure you stage it for a quick sale You do not have to spend a lot of money to stage your home to get noticed. eXp Realty is committed to helping you sell your Lake of the Ozarks home! This week's blog will feature seven tips to stage your home that will not break the bank.


1. Get Rid of Clutter
This may seem like a no brainer, but reducing clutter in your home is a must! Many sellers fail to reduce the clutter in their home before they list it. This can be the make or break whether your home sells or not. Reducing the clutter in your home does not only mean cleaning off counter tops, picking up the floor, or cleaning out closets. Often, sellers have too much furniture in their home which makes the home feel smaller. Consider reducing the amount of furniture in your living room to open up the space.

2. Use NEUTRAL Wall Colors
Giving your home a fresh coat of paint is always a great way to transform any space in your home. This will give your walls a fresh new look! You should try to stick with a neutral color palette when you are staging your home. Consider warm colors, beige, tans, or grey. You may absolutely love that bright color you painted in your living room, but not everyone will. Painting is an inexpensive fix when you move into a new home, but if you can eliminate one less thing the buyers have to do, it may be what sets your home apart.

3. Change Up Your Wall Art
It is common for people to stick with straight lines and boring groupings when they hang their art work on the wall. Straight lines can make your artwork blend in and go unnoticed. Consider mixing it up! Art displayed in a more artistic fashion can make any wall of your home pop. Do this by varying patterns and groups.

4. Get New Linens
Purchasing new linens for the master bedroom and spare room can make a huge difference. If you have an empty room, consider staging a spare bedroom. If you do not have the money to buy a new mattress that's OKAY! Buy an inexpensive bed frame and air mattress. Buyer will never know that the mattress is not real, and that new bedding will give the spare room a fresh look!

5. Paint Your Cabinets and Add New Hardware
You do not have to buy brand new kitchen cabinets to transform your kitchen. Consider painting your cabinets if they are dated. Painted cabinets are very popular right now and can change your kitchen dramatically. After you apply a fresh coat of paint, change all the hardware. Changing the hardware will make give a new modern look to your kitchen. The kitchen is one of the most looked at rooms in your home. If you can sell your kitchen to your potential buyers, more times than not, your Lake of the Ozarks property is sold!

6. Have Fresh Flowers in Your Home
If you are listing your home in the Spring, place fresh flowers in your rooms to make it feel more inviting while adding a splash of color. Fresh flower arrangements can be costly, so look for fresh flowers that are in your yard. Cut some lilies out of your yard, trim off some flowers from your magnolia tree, or take some blooms from your lilac bush!

7. Group Your Furniture With a Purpose 
Along with eliminating excess furniture, you should think about how the furniture is arranged in your home. You might think that placing living room furniture against walls makes the room feel bigger. However, this is not always the case You should group your furniture closer together making obvious walkways. This will help the flow of you home and make the space feel much larger.
