What Is Home Staging?

Did you know a potential homebuyer makes up their mind within 10 seconds of stepping in the door?

Home staging is not a new term, but for many homeowners and real estate agents the concept of “professional staging” is a new way of thinking when it's time to sell a home. In the past, homeowners were left to their own discretion as far as preparing for home showings. Though they could occasionally rely on an agent for instructions, more often than not real estate agents were just as perplexed at working out the details as the homeowner.

Real estate agents are experts when it comes to selling homes and usually know exactly what factors can help sell a home. However, most agents will readily admit they are not also designers. If you've ever sold a home, you know it's not easy to get a home into selling condition in a timely manner without some sort of experienced assistance. That's where a home stager can help.

Professional home stagers are practiced in the art of preparing a home for resale. They work with the “flow” of a home, eliminate clutter, edit and arrange furniture, and even assist in enhancing curb-appeal. With the aid of a home stager, your house can make a notable first impression on potential homebuyers.
And that first impression is what will give you, the homeowner, the quickest sale for the most money.
