Frequently Asked Questions
What is Home Staging?
Home Staging is the art of improving a property to make it appeal to the largest number of buyers. Staging transforms a house into a welcoming, appealing, and attractive product for sale. Properly executed staging leads the eye to attractive features while minimizing flaws. Remember, "The way you live in your home, and the way you market and sell your house are two different things."
What are the benefits of Staging my home?
Home Staging is the best proven way to get top dollar for your home.
Staged homes sell faster and receive higher offers than competing homes that are not staged.
Staged houses look better in pictures, which brings more potential buyers into your home.
Realtors prefer to show homes that are staged.
Shouldn’t I try my house on the market first before spending money on staging?
The fact is, the longer your house is on the market, the lower the selling price will be. By staging your home first, you won’t lose those first prospective buyers that might have made an offer if the house had been staged. Homes that have been staged typically sell 50% faster and for 6% more on average. Making a great first impression is what sells homes.
Why should I choose an Accredited Staging Professional (ASP) Home Stager?
Accredited (ASP) Stagers are true professionals and are extensively trained in using proven staging techniques developed for over 30 years. ASP Professional Home Stagers are required to follow strict ethical guidelines in all aspects of their home staging business.

What is the difference between Decorating and Staging?
Decorating is personalizing and Staging is Depersonalizing. When you place your home on the market, you want to depersonalize the home so that buyers are able to envision themselves living in your home, without being distracted by your personal photos, unique decor, etc.
