Buyer's Agent Perspective:

  • 49% of buyers agents feel home staging has a positive effect on buyers' view of a home
  • 77% of agents feel staging helps buyers visualize living in a home
  • The most important rooms to stage are: living room, master bedroom and kitchen
  • 30% of buyer's agents feel staging a home increases the price offered by a buyer between 1%-5%

Seller's Agent Perspective:

  • 38% of seller's agents stage all of their listings prior to putting them on the market
  • The cost of staging is typically paid by the seller before the home is listed
  • 39% of seller's agents said a staged home sells faster
  • The most common recommendations from home stagers were: decluttering, entire home cleaning, carpet cleaning and removing pets during showings
