Getting your home ready to go on the market is more than just cleaning and organization. Paula Hobbs of Pop Decor says staging your home means tending to every little detail and creating a mood or feeling that helps potential buyers more easily get a mental picture of living there themselves. For instance, personal items like family photos around the house or toiletry items on the bathroom counter show it’s *your* home. Removing such items and adding warmth with accessories and lighting evokes an inviting atmosphere and allows a buy to picture it as *their* home.
