Home Staging 101

Glenn Giles
Jan 7 2 minutes read

Have you ever watched HGTV and wondered how every home always looks perfectly put together? The answer to this is staging. 

Home staging goes beyond just cleaning and decorating your home. Staging is adding decor, arranging furniture, and prepping your home to look perfect for listing photos, listing appointments, and open houses. When a home is staged, potential buyers see exactly where furniture should go and how each room is laid out. When a home is not staged, potential buyers are only focusing on the visible issues the home may have.

Not only does staging make your home look like an HGTV dream or like it belongs on Pottery Barn's homepage, but it can actually speed up the sale of your property.

83%

of buyers’ agents said a staged home helped buyers visualize the property as a future home, according to NAR

25%

of buyers’ agents said potential buyers increased their offer between 1 and 5% on a staged home, according to NAR

85%

of homes surveyed were sold for 6-25% more than homes that were not staged, according to HSR Certified Professional Home Stagers
