What is home staging?

Home staging is the act of preparing a private residenc for sale in the real estate marketplace. It is editing, de-personalizing, and de-cluttering and enhancing the space.

The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money. Staging techniques focus on improving a property's appeal by transforming it into a welcoming, attractive product that anyone might want.

Why do I need to hire a home stager?

The way we live in our home is not the best way to market and sell our home. By editing, rearranging, modifying and adding furniture and accessories, home stagers transform a home into an appealing property for sale designed to create mass appeal as opposed to individual appeal.

Staging is an investment and helps to achieve the optimum sale. Research states that home staging can yield 390% return on your investment. Only 10% of buyers can visualize the potential of un-staged property. Home staging can reduce a listing's time on market by one third to half, and could fetch as much as 10-15% more than an empty home or a home not properly staged. Invest a little, get a lot!

That's why staging a home is so important and essential… Staging works!
