What is Staging?
Staging is the process of preparing, packaging and presenting your home. 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 and more attractive first impression of the property.
