  • Maximize space: Condos are often smaller than other types of homes, so it's important to make the most of the space you have. Use furniture that is scaled to the size of the room, and avoid using too many pieces.

  • Highlight natural light: Natural light can make a condo feel more spacious and inviting. Open up curtains and blinds, and consider adding mirrors to reflect light around the room.

  • Create a balcony oasis: If your condo has a balcony, make sure it's staged to perfection. Add comfortable seating, a small table, and some plants to create a relaxing outdoor space.


  • Define the different spaces: Townhouses often have multiple floors, so it's important to define the different spaces and make them feel purposeful. Use furniture, rugs, and paint to create distinct living areas, dining areas, and bedrooms.

  • Embrace the vertical space: Townhouses often have high ceilings, so take advantage of them. Use tall furniture, hanging plants, and artwork to draw the eye up and make the rooms feel larger.

  • Create a welcoming entryway: The entryway is the first thing potential buyers will see, so make sure it's inviting. Add a console table, a mirror, and a place to hang coats and bags.

Single-family homes

  • Showcase the outdoor space: Single-family homes often have yards, patios, and decks, so make sure they're staged to impress. Add outdoor furniture, a fire pit, and some string lights to create an inviting space that buyers can imagine themselves using.

  • Create a cozy atmosphere: Single-family homes can feel large and impersonal, so use staging to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere. Use warm colors, soft textures, and plenty of lighting to make buyers feel comfortable.

  • Highlight the unique features: Every single-family home is unique, so make sure to highlight the features that make it special. If you have a fireplace, a finished basement, or a beautiful view, be sure to stage those areas in a way that shows them off.

Additional tips:

  • Declutter and depersonalize: Before you start staging, declutter your home and remove any personal items. This will help potential buyers see the space as their own.

  • Clean and update: Make sure your home is clean and in good repair. Potential buyers will be turned off by a home that looks dirty or neglected.

  • Hire a professional: If you're not sure how to stage your home yourself, consider hiring a professional stager. They can help you create a look that is both stylish and appealing to buyers.

By following these tips, you can stage your home to appeal to a wider range of buyers and help it sell faster and for more money.
