You’re more inclined to shop around in a store if it's well lit, clean and tidy - right? Well, same goes for potential home buyers at an open house. Staging presents a home in the best light, so that it appeals to as many prospective buyers as possible.

For some homes, especially more modest residences, agents need to assess the ROI of staging to determine whether or not it's cost effective. Save yourself some money and DIY - do it yourself! Of course, you should always make sure the home is decluttered, and depersonalized, but also keep these 3 essential steps in mind when you stage a home yourself.
