How Staging Adds Value to a Home


What is Home Staging?

Home staging, in essence, is preparing your home to be in the best possible condition before you put it on the market to effectively increase its value. This is done by making cosmetic and/or structural changes that will improve the quality as well as the allure of your home. Additionally, home staging involves the strategic design of rooms and placement of decor accents and furniture. The goal of home staging is to present your property in a way that potential buyers can a) see themselves living there, and b) be impressed by the state of your home. IntExt’s Home Staging Services can be broken down into two categories: Interior Staging and Exterior Staging.

How Home Staging Increases Home Value

Ultimately, once a home is staged, it’s in a better physical and cosmetic condition than it originally was. Because it’s in a better condition, it will draw more potential buyers and more offers, both of which increase a home’s value. Additionally, because the home has been staged, the chances that buyers will request concessions go down, effectively increasing your profit.

The IntExt Staging Process

When staging your home, we begin by providing a free home evaluation and consultation as well as a staging proposal. This means that we examine your home, note what staging would be the most effective, and then advise you on which home staging strategy will maximize the value of your home.  

Once a unique strategy is developed, we provide a consultation as to what design methods are not only cohesive with the style and aesthetics of your home, but also what methods are certain to increase the maximum value to your home.

Upon collectively deciding on the design(s), it’s time to stage your home. At this point, we will select a contractor from our large, reliable network to facilitate any major renovations or home remodeling that need to take place. Then we stage your home by executing our design plan.

IntExt Staging takes care of acquiring all the required furniture, decor, and features to perfectly stage your home. Additionally, we’re proud to say that we have a massive inventory of fresh and stylish items, all of which we own. This means that you won’t need to spend any extra money renting the temporary accents used during the staging process.


After we’ve staged your home, you can relax, knowing that the offers will soon begin rolling in and that you will be receiving the maximum profit on your property!
