Why? Staging makes it easier for potential buyers to picture themselves living in your home. Sellers can disguise awkward-looking rooms and spaces by staging them in an attractive manner. And because most buyers start their home search by looking through online listings, staging allows you to post attractive photos.

Be sure to get three estimates for a competitive price, but if you feel comfortable with a company, read a few of their online reviews before getting started with contract signing.
Identify the most relevant rooms to stage. Staging is all about drawing attention to specific areas of the home. Decide which rooms will be the selling point of your property (such as the living room, kitchen, and master bedroom) and prepare them for staging. Also make sure you stage any awkward spaces- such as large, empty areas or tiny rooms.
Focus on walls and clutter. De-cluttering is the most important step when staging your home. Remove all clutter from targeted areas and make sure everything is clean and neat. You should also add some life to plain walls by hanging a few pictures (to make it look homely) or using a lively paint color.
