Home staging is the design process of depersonalizing a private residence prior to putting it up for sale in the real estate marketplace. This can often be achieved by re-arranging, decluttering and improving on certain items in the home.

The goal of staging a home is to help it sell quickly and for the highest amount of money by appealing to the largest amount of prospective buyers. Staging creates a living space buyers can "see" themselves and their furniture in. This is similar to a model home, and how it is displayed and presented. Staging focuses on improving a home’s potential by transforming it into a ‘neutral’ property because the way we live in our home is completely different than the way we should sell our home.

Staging also helps create an environment that will lead a buyer’s eye to the home’s rooms and attractive features, while minimizing its flaws.

Many home-sellers agree that staging is a practical first step prior to selling any home, especially since the cost of staging a home is usually much less than the increased selling price you often achieve from a staging your home.
