Home staging is when a seller will prepare the home for sale by making it more appealing to potentialbuyers. This process sometimes involves hiring a home staging professional and typically includes bringing in appropriate furniture, accessories and décor. It may also include landscaping and fresh paint in rooms that need updating.
