Tips for staging your patio [Video]

Selling your home in the summertime? You’ll probably need to spruce up your patio, as this space will appear extra-exposed in the hot sun. Fortunately, making improvements to this exterior area takes little time and requires a tiny budget.

First, take some time to assess your outdoor furniture situation. If your patio features outdated or dilapidated furnishings, consider outfitting the area with new pieces. If you’re an avid do-it-yourself-er on a budget, a new coat of paint or two might suffice. Of course, take care of any clutter while your at it. Old yard junk will definitely detract from your new outdoor dining set.

Next, tackle your ground-level surfaces. If you’re working with a concrete or tile patio, definitely call in a power-washing service. Got a wooden deck? Pick up some deck stain to brighten things a bit.
