What is Home Staging?

According to Wikipedia, Home staging is the act of preparing a private residence for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money. Staging techniques focus on improving a property''s appeal by transforming it into a welcoming, attractive product that anyone might want.

Why should your home be staged?

First impressions will determine the fate of a listed home. Only 10% of home buyers can actually visualize the potential of a home, so it needs to be welcoming, neutral, and move-in ready as soon as buyers drive up and walk in.

The National Association of Realtors reported that the average number of days on the market for a staged house was 13.9 days versus 30.9 for an un-staged house. Some markets are reporting sales up to 80% faster than un-staged homes.

Housing and Urban Development reports a staged home sells 17% higher than an un-staged home. If your home looks like you value it, then others will value it too and offer more than homes that do not show as well as a staged home.

Psychology of Staging


When a buyer walks into a room that is de-cluttered, smells good, looks inviting, peaceful, and organized ? the buyer will get the feeling that they will be organized, relaxed and de-cluttered if they buy this house. They can envision themselves living peacefully in this home based on the scene that has been set up (even if they have never lived this way before, and never will). Psychologically a buyer will actually think there lifestyle will ?become? what they see in a well-staged home. A cluttered home that does not smell pleasant or does not show well will send the opposite message. The emotions that a home emits can influence buyers in a positive way.

Cleaning and repairs

A good stager can consult with you on cleaning, de-cluttering, and maintenance - but these items need to be completed before your house can be staged, including general yard maintenance.  

5 most common staging accessories

  • Small side table with lamp or candle in the living room
  • Floor lamps placed next to a small chair
  • Large vase in a corner with a plant and a print hanging on the wall
