“A new member survey by the National Association of REALTORS® found that 49 percent of participants who work with buyers say that staging has an effect on the buyer’s view of the home. But another 47 percent believe that staging only sometimes impacts a buyer’s view of the home. Only 4 percent of REALTORS® said staging has no impact on buyer perceptions.
Of the Realtors who believe that staging works, 81 percent said staging helps buyers visualize the property as a future home, while 46 percent said it makes prospective buyers more willing to walk through a home they saw online.”
