ASP® Staged® homes are on the market 83% less time than a non-Staged® home. “Home Staging is a statistically proven method that typically sells homes faster and for more money,” said Barb Schwarz, CEO of Stagedhomes.com. “The results are further proof that the investment of Staging® a home is less than the first price reduction,” she added.

Recommended by top real estate agents and as seen on television, Home Staging is professionally preparing homes for sale, so that they appeal to the most amount of buyers and generate the highest price in the least amount of time on market. In today’s market conditions, Staging sells homes. Home Staging is NOT decorating, fluffing, interior design or redesign! Instead, Home Staging is detailing, de-cluttering, depersonalizing and preparing a seller’s home to give it a “model home” appearance so that the potential buyer can “see” themselves living in the home.
