What is home staging?
Home staging is the act of preparing a home for sale in such a way to maximize the sale price and minimize time on the market. The goal is to make the home appealing to as wide of a spectrum of potential buyers as possible. Home staging is about illusions; making rooms look bigger and brighter, giving the house an aura of warmth and most importantly allowing prospective buyers to imagine themselves living there. In basic staging, things like decluttering, paint color, where furniture is placed and what type of lighting is used can make big differences for only small monetary investments. In a more thorough staging job, outside furniture, art, window coverings and various other things may be brought in to help. Your level of commitment is up to you and your budget.
