Staging is about selling your house or condominium. It starts with curb appeal and the initial impression a buyer gets when they pull up to the house and continue through the rooms of the house. A small amount invested in staging can yield a big return both in terms of realizing your asking price and in the time the home spends on the market. This is true whether you are selling a California bungalow in Santa Barbara or a mansion in Montecito. As the housing market continues to be a "buyer's market," many sellers are turning to home staging as a way to highlight their home’s best attributes.
