Home Staging 101
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.
