Staging A Home

So, you’ve decided to sell your home… congratulations! One of the most important days in the home-selling process is its staging day/marketing day.

What does staging a home mean? It means getting the home you’re selling ready for potential buyers in the best way possible. The idea is to make it look as perfect (but still natural) for when your real estate agent gives a showing to those looking to buy.

Staging a home can include rearranging furniture, cleaning floors, decluttering a bedroom, and much more.
