It’s one of the most common questions a real estate agent gets asked: “Is staging my home really necessary?” Of course, the answer depends on a number of factors. However, many homeowners who agree to stage before selling will say that their home never looked better! The reason is simple. The furniture in most homes evolves over time to meet the changing needs of the homeowners. This often leads to a disjointed impression. However, a staged home is designed to be visually appealing and to reveal the key advantages of a home’s layout.

When it’s done well, staging leaves potential buyers with a very good impression. They can more easily imagine themselves living in such a well-appointed home. They may also interpret the visual appeal as a sign of a well-cared for home. Sometimes, staging is not required because of market activity or competition. But, staging might still be well worth it, when you consider the effect that it could have on a prospective purchaser.
