Home Staging

What is Home Staging?

Home Staging is the act of preparing a home to look its absolute best prior to placing it for sale in the real estate market. Home Staging can involve a variety of activities such as de-cluttering and organizing, depersonalizing a space, rearranging furniture to open up the space, updating old or unattractive fixtures, painting, bringing in furniture, artwork, plants, rugs or accessories to create a warm, inviting and attractive atmosphere for the potential buyer. Other staging activities may include landscaping activities such as trimming hedges and bushes, planting fresh flowers, putting fresh mulch around flower beds, removing unsightly weeds or grass, organizing the garage, and power washing the porch or deck. Staging a property often raises the value of the property by way of reducing the home's flaws, improving its overall condition and enhancing the home's attributes on both the interior and exterior of the home.
