Home Staging. What Does it Mean?
Category - Home Selling Questions - General Home Selling FAQ's

Home staging is the act of preparing a private residence prior to going up for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to sell a home quickly, and for the most money possible by attracting the most amount of potential buyers.1

Home staging focuses on improving a property to make it appeal to the largest amount of buyers by transforming it into a welcoming, appealing, and attractive product for sale. Staging often raises the value of a property by way of reducing the home's flaws, depersonalizing, de-cluttering, cleaning, improving condition items, and landscaping. For vacant homes, rental furniture is used to create a living space the buyer could "see" themselves in. Properly executed staging leads the eye to attractive features while minimizing flaws.

Staging is the crucial step needed to help a buyer connect with a listing and visualize themselves living in the home.  Staging showcases the house in the best possible light.  After all, we never get a second chance to create a great first impression so it is imperative that the house is “dressed to impress.”

Home staging is in the end all about marrying the art of good interior design with the science of human decision-making and consumer behavior.
