What is Home Staging?

The way you live in your home, and the way you market and sell your house are two different

things.  Home Staging is professionally preparing homes for sale, so that they appeal to

the most amount of buyers and generate the highest price in the least amount of

time on market. Staged Homes traditionally present themselves better than the

competition by being clean, clutter-free, and ready to show to prospective Buyers.

A properly staged home has just the right quality and quantity of furnishings for a buyer to understand how rooms function and how spaces flow. Staging creates warmth, life, and positive emotion.
