This is not TLC
We all love the shows where staging means a crew of men wearing tool belts and hard hats, walls being torn down, new furniture and a huge budget, THAT IS NOT WHAT THIS IS. And it is so not necessary. Effective staging to sell evaulates a home's selling features and highlights those features. Sometimes (often times actually) it's wise to repaint, change hardware on doors and cabinets, assess floor conditions etc but the real art in staging is not in the accessories, it's in the home itself.
