Capital Gains on Apartment redevelopment


(Guest)

I'm putting my home up for sale, and have paid a $3,000 fee to a professional home stager. The idea is to make the house look like a designer showroom and attract offers. The fee included renting and placing new furniture in the home, redecorating the windows, and adding various decorative items and props such as pillows, artwork, champagne glasses in the bedroom, and indoor plants.

Will this fee reduce what I owe if I end up with a high enough profit that I must pay capital gains tax?
