If you walk into most Bay Area homes for sale today, the scene is usually the same. A white linen sofa has two plump pillows at each end, with an intentional dent at each top. A thick, glossy book sits atop a sleek, minimal wood coffee table. On the other end of the room is a slim desk and a chair that looks plush and is most definitely not ergonomic. Neutral, abstract art hangs on the walls and there’s no TV to be found.
The anatomy of a staged Palo Alto home might be obvious, but it’s also expected in the Bay Area, a region where home stagers are an essential part of the selling process. While the rest of the country might make do with empty rooms or the owner’s furniture, staging a home before it goes on the market is more common than not.
