There may still be snow on the ground in your neck of the woods, but if you're trying to sell a home this spring, it's not too early to start getting the house ready. One of the surest ways to speed a home sale is through artful home staging.

Home staging is more important than ever these days, when houses are not exactly flying off the shelves. "It's a tough market. The quicker your house sells, the better off you are," says Karen Eubank, Dallas chapter president of the Real Estate Staging Association. "You can't change the location of your house. You can change the price--though you probably don't want to--or you can change the condition. It's totally under your control to change the condition, so why not do it? It's very inexpensive, and the return on investment is phenomenal."
