According to the report, for 81% of buyers it is easier to visualize the property as a future home for them when the home is properly staged. Furthermore, almost half of  buyers are more willing to walk through a home they viewed online. Getting a buyer off the internet and actually into the home is a big hurdle and staging a home clearly shows that it can help get the buyer in your door.  And some buyers are more willing to overlook other property faults when a seller has taken the time to have the home staged.

The median dollar value for staging is $675 per home. This is a minimal investment that statistically could bring a 1 to 5% increase in dollar value. That could be a significant amount of money for any home sale.

The most important rooms to focus on are:

  1. The living room

  2. Kitchen

  3. Master bedroom

  4. Dining room

  5. Bathroom

  6. Children’s rooms

  7. Guest bedrooms
