Home staging for more value

In the real-estate market, homeowners sometimes have to take extra steps to make a sale. For sellers trying to make a good impression, home staging has become a popular way to increase a home’s selling price and decrease selling time.

Home staging is arranging furniture and decor with the intent to showcase a home for sale. Home staging isn’t only decorating, it’s more like depersonalizing a home so that prospective buyers can imagine themselves in it.

This means adding neutral-colored paint and carpet and buying new furnitures and appliances. The goal is to make the buyer feel at home when he/she tours the property. Home staging is popular because it provides the buyer with an idea of how furniture could be placed in the home and how much space will be available when it’s furnished.
