Benefits of Staging

The purpose of staging is to transform your home to look neat, stylish and inviting. You want to turn your property into a place that potential buyers can easily picture as their own. The key elements to staging are:
  • improving the “flow” throughout the house
  • eliminating clutter
  • editing and arranging furniture
  • updating the look and feel of the house

Many studies confirm that a staged home sells faster and commands a higher price thus offsetting the cost of a professional stager. Keep in mind that buyers pay more for a home they perceive to be as turn key ready.

Should you decide your home could benefit from this service, CSR has qualified, experienced home stagers for you to utilize. Many of CSR’s realtors include the use of a professional stager as a part of their service. To learn more email:, call 408.558.5000 or Find an Agent.
