Home staging is the act of preparing a private residence for sale in the real estate marketplace.[1] 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, attractive product that anyone might want.[2]

People often use arts, painting, accessories, lights, greenery, and carpet to stage the home, [3] to give potential buyers a more attractive first impression of the property.[4] They also rearrange or “temporarily replace” furniture[5] Properly executed staging leads the eye to attractive features while down-playing flaws.

Home staging is not without controversy: “rattled” was a NYTimes-cited reaction by a writer with a library room being told that “More than 50 percent of shelf space devoted to books equals clutter.”[3]
