Home staging is almost a no-brainer nowadays. It’s difficult at first to think about shelling out the extra money to optimize the look, feel and utility of your home. But the higher net impact of staging has proven itself over and over again.

You usually feel better coming out of a house that has been staged, versus one that has not. That’s because the staging has created a visual that most of us can’t conjure up on our own.
