These are the most important things in home staging:
Curb appeal id the first thing a prospective buyer sees
Depersonalize your home.
Put away clutter.
Place a great smelling glade or air wick plug in by the door.
Make your home appear comfortable, appealing & welcoming
Play some very soft music in the background
Lighting is important also. Open the blinds and put on all your lights so the prospective buyers can see everything.
