Staging your home before you put it on the market  is a smart and savvy way to guarantee that it will sell faster and at a higher price. By lightening, brightening, de-cluttering , highlighting the assets and downplaying the challenges of your house, home staging showcases your house at its very best, both online—where 90% of buyers look first before visiting—and for open houses and for showings.
