It seems to be universally accepted thathome stagingwill helpyour home sellfaster or for the best price—it’s been thecommon practicein thereal estate businessfor a long time, and on the surface it seems like a no-brainer. Of course potential buyers will be more interested if a home is properly decorated, right?
That’s not necessarily true, according to a recent academic study. The study surveyed 820 homebuyers by showing them one of six virtual tours of the same property. In some instances the home was decorated with traditional furniture and color schemes, while in others more eccentric furniture and colors were used. In other tours there was no furniture at all, just empty rooms.
The overall results of the study were that staging is unlikely to increase a home’s sale price, and that staging isn’t quite as important as everyone believes.

"UNBELIEVABLE! When I met Jimmie and Paige they introduced themselves as realtors. I told them that I had a house that I was trying to sell on Beacon Light. They asked me if they could interview for the job of selling my home. I let them know that it was already listed however I wanted to hear what they had to say. I knew my listing agreement had already expired years ago. They shared with me their marketing strategy and I decided to go with them. I can’t believe that I had my house on the market with a “friend” for five years! What they accomplished in one week is UNBELIEVABLE to me. They actually got my home SOLD for full price in one week! If you are looking for proactive realtors who are results driven then you need to talk to Jimmie and Paige. All I can say is that they are UNBELIEVABLY GREAT!
