What Is Home Staging?

With home sellers competing at unprecedented levels, boosting the chances of getting a home sold quickly can be crucial. Many home sellers turn to home staging to gain an edge on the competition.

Home staging is more than just preparing a home for sale; it’s about marketing your home to the masses. According to the National Association of Realtors, staged homes sell for about six percent more, on average, than those not staged. When a home stays on the market, the price goes down. Staged homes sell faster, which means they’re less likely to be subjected to a reduction in price.

The concept of home staging will be a hard pill to swallow for many homeowners who have put heart and soul into their home. But the key to staging properly is to remove the personal association with your house. You need to see your home as a commodity and let the emotional attachment go. For proper staging, the picture in the mind of potential buyers must be that it could be their home.
