You have cleaned, painted, removed the clutter and conducted some minor repairs, and now you think that your home is staged and ready for showing. Well, if you really think your home is staged, then you have miscalculated because your work has just started. Home staging is what you do after you remove all the clutter, get the landscaper to take care of the front and back yard, clean and paint. A well staged home could mean the difference between it sitting on the local real estate market more than you would like to and having it sell quicker than you actually thought possible.

Professional home stagers can be thought of as illusionists because that is just what they do. They will give the staged home that cozy, lived-in feeling that seems to bring out good feelings and memories in people. People simply do not enjoy walking into a home that has no warmth or comfort to it. On the other hand, if the home has furniture, rugs, mats, fabrics and other things strategically placed to liven it up, it can really make a potential buyer feel welcome. A stager will create the illusion that your house is brighter, warmer, bigger, fresher and cleaner, among other things.

Home stagers can also be thought of as artists because they look to engage the buyers' senses just as any other artist would. Staging has been around for over 30 years, so there are some highly trained artists who can really do wonders for your home to help sell it. Home staging prices can vary according to the size of the house, demand and the professional doing the staging. The range is generally from $500 to $5,000, but it can go above $5,000 if the home you are trying to sell is very big, in an upper end neighborhood and the stager is in high demand.

Most real estate people know that the typical home buyer will decide whether they like a home within the first 8 seconds of having seen it. Knowing this fact, home stagers will try to give your house curb appeal by showing a well-maintained front yard with no clutter. The staging process is reliant upon your house showing well from the moment a potential buyer pulls up to the curb and sees the house you are trying to sell for the first time.

Real estate people also know that a house that is shown with accessories and furniture will sell quicker than a house that's empty. A stager takes advantage of this fact by showing a potential buyer what can be done with a particular room or space. The buyer does not have to look at the empty space and try to imagine what it would look like if it were furnished and accessorized.

If you are one of those people who definitely has too much stuff, store it or get rid of it because people like roominess when viewing a home. In fact, roominess and lots of light are what will make or break the home staging. If a person walks into uncluttered, well lit and attractive spaces, they are more likely to get that welcome and inviting feeling the stager is trying to create, and you are more likely to sell the house.
