How to Upgrade Your Home Without Upgrading Your Home

There was a time where it was appealing to buy a fixer-upper. The idea of buying a home that needed a lot of work was a romantic adventure of sorts, and then... reality hit. Homes for sale in Dallas are already above normal market price, so who wants to put money into a home you've already put money into just by purchasing it? Not very many people. However, what homebuyers want is a turn-key, ready-to-move-in home. And you, as the assumed home seller, probably don't want to invest in a home that will shortly no longer be yours. This is where Home Staging can meet the buyer and the seller in the middle.


Here are a few tips on how to upgrade your home without actually upgrading your home.


Kitchen Upgrade

Instead of replacing out-dated cabinets, paint them a lighter color. This will make the space appear larger and allow the focus to be directed toward the kitchen's better qualities like an over-sized sink or gas stove.

Dining Room Upgrade

Fewer and fewer new home builds are including a formal dining area. If your home has one, make it appear more casual, as if it were an everyday dining area instead of a "formal" dining area used only once or twice a year. We highly recommend re-painting with neutral colors and stage it so homebuyers can see themselves entertaining here.

Primary Bedroom Upgrade

Make the Primary Bedroom a relaxing getaway, somewhere stylish, safe, and cozy. With ample natural light, an irresistibly comfortable bed, and pops of color, the homebuyer can envision themselves turning in after a long day.
