Spring sales season is here and that means making sure that your Beaumont home staging incorporates some of the best elements of spring in order to attract buyers. Fresh flowers and plants, bright neutral paint and great furniture are all an important part of spring home staging. If you’re wondering where you can find great spring home staging pieces that don’t cost a fortune here are some the places where expert home stagers go in order to find great spring pieces on a budget:
Many closeout stores sell last year’s outdoor furniture and summer pieces at a discount in late winter and early spring. It’s a great chance to grab some otherwise expensive outdoor furniture so that you can stage indoor outdoor areas and really show off the potential of decks, patios and porches. Look for floor models that often have even bigger discounts. And stock up on white lights leftover from the holidays to put on patios and in gardens to make potential buyers think about summer evenings sitting outside and having barbecues with friends.
It’s still early in the farmer’s market season but many vendors will have fresh spring flowers and plants at low prices. Fresh flowers and plants are fantastic for spring staging but they need to be replaced often so hitting the florist every time you have a home showing isn’t really practical. Go by the Edmonton farmer’s market or local market around the middle of the day and you can get beautiful fresh spring flowers and plants for a very low cost because the vendors will want to sell them before they start to wilt. You can also hit up the florist but ask for any flowers that they selling at a discount rather than buying the most expensive fresh flowers that they have.
Yard sale season has begun and it’s a fantastic time to find great pieces at low prices. Start checking social media and sites like Craigslist or kijiji to find out where your local yard sales on and plan on spending a few hours on weekend mornings looking for furniture and accessories. You can also check the Facebook marketplace for great deals on furniture and household decorations.
