House Staging Helps Homeowners Looking To Sell

If your house is on the market but just won't seem to budge, a space lift may be just what you need. It's where interior arrangers take the things you already own and make over your room so it showcases your house.

Interior arranger Amy Bott with Space Lift Interiors says clearing the clutter makes a big difference. Start by getting rid of personal items like too many photos or religious symbols.

"When you sell the house, you're going to have a lot of different people come in, a variety of people, and not all necessarily going to share your views. So, you want to make sure that it's generic and yet still cozy."

A recent industry survey found that a professionally staged house sold 30 percent faster and for 13 percent more money than comparable houses on the market.
