TIPS: What is Home Staging?


Home staging is about creating a moment within a space. At it’s core, the goal is to help a potential buyer envision themselves living in the home. Once a room has been cleaned and decluttered it’s time to create the experience. This is done by strategically placing furniture, accessing natural lighting and adding a few accessories for the added touches. Think about the last time you walked into a nice hotel room. You looked at the bed, the wall, the carpet, the lighting. None of these things belonged you to yet the affect how you felt about the hotel. The same can be said of the affects of home staging. Potential buyers know they can’t take the items with them, and that when they buy a home the items will not be there, but the feeling they get when they walk into a room is created by the staging process.
