What is Home Staging
Home Staging (also called House Staging, Real Estate Staging, Real Estate Styling, House Fluffing, House Primping) is the art of decorating a property for the real estate market.
The goal is to sell fast and get top dollar. Hence our motto:
Sell High. Sell Fast. Sell Smart.™
You can’t always be objective about your own home, seeing it the way a potential buyer will.
The Staging Diva Directory of Home Stagers helps you find home stagers near you. It provides access to our network of thousands of home staging professionals worldwide.
Home stagers are available to help you in person, or virtually by phone/online meeting.

Working with a home stager can be as simple as getting the right advice to transform your furnished home and doing the rest yourself. Or as complex as having a home stager bring in new furniture and accessories for a vacant property.
Many home staging projects lie somewhere between these two extremes, depending on your current situation, your budget and the time available. When you contact our home stagers, they’ll explain how they can help you and what it costs.

Why Home Staging Is Key to Getting Top Dollar For Your Property
“Home staging works because real estate buyers shop with logic and buy on emotion,” says home staging expert Debra Gould.
“Our job is to romance potential buyers so that they fall in love with a property and make a solid offer quickly, because they’re afraid of losing their dream home.”
It’s all about boosting the perceived value of a home and making it stand out from the competition. Home stagers help buyers see that if they don’t buy your home fast, someone else will beat them to it.
Why? Because a home that’s properly staged looks so much better than the other properties in that neighborhood and price range. So, in a hot market, you’ll have more buyers outbidding each other. And in a slow market, you’ll attract an offer faster than the other homes in your neighborhood.
Some people are reluctant to spend money on a home they’re selling. Consider this, you really can’t afford NOT to stage your home.
While there are no guarantees in real estate, staged homes do sell more quickly and for higher prices.
An 8 city Coldwell Banker Realty study of 2,772 properties, priced from USD $229,000 – $4.8 million, found that staged homes sold:
- In under 14 days, compared to 31 days for un-staged properties.
- At 6.3% over the asking price compared to only 1.6% for properties that weren’t staged.
Most home staging projects cost under $5,000 (and often under $1,000). With returns of $10,000 to $70,000 or more, can you really afford not to hire a home stager?
