When it comes to selling a home, there are a ton of moving parts to consider. But beyond finding the right real estate professional and setting a fair price, there’s one factor that may affect buyer interest in your home more than any other: Staging. 

When potential buyers enter your home, they want to be able to picture themselves living there. If your interior features a very specific aesthetic or tons of personal, miscellaneous stuff, then it’s tough for buyers to view it as a potential home of their own.
