When selling your home, there’s a couple of things you need to consider. From price points, home values, and other factors, you should also look into staging your home.

Go ahead and check out this incredible video below and read through all her answers too. We think you might just be rethinking your strategy the next time you’re listing your home.
What is Home Staging?
Home staging is when you have a professional stager come into your home and guide you in the best direction to get the best return on investment (ROI) for your property by making your home more appealing to buyers.
Why Should You Stage Your Home?
The ultimate goal is to stage your home to have a better ROI. A home stager is able to come look at your home from a different perspective. Once a home stager reviews your home, they are able to find ways to utilize the space to its highest potential in order to draw the best potential buyers. Ultimately adding more value to your home than you previously would have gotten in a non-staged space, whether the room has your belongings in it or it is empty. The home stager finds potential in your house that you may have never seen before and typically that leads to a higher ROI!
How Do You Go About Home Staging?
The best time to contact a home stager is around one to two months before you intend to list your home. They can work on tighter timelines if needed because everyone understands life happens! Typically they come into your home and create a list of things you should do to get the best ROI. The list is done in order of importance. The stagers can come back and do the work for you or you can do it on your own.
Tips to Know About Home Stagers
Keep in mind the demographic of your current neighborhood. Is it a more family-oriented area or more business driven? This is a great way to market the space inside your home correctly to attract the best potential buyers.
