It seems to be universally accepted that home staging will help your home sell faster or for the best price—it’s been the common practice in the real estate business for 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.
Of course, real estate trends vary greatly from market to market. If you have questions about staging, talk to your trusted real estate professional.

"Emma, Brian and their Team are 100% amazing! As an owner of both investment properties and a handful of primary residences over the decades, we know the value and importance of using high performing teams - and this is one of them!
They were referred to us by multiple friends, colleagues and working professionals (including our Tax guy). Not only are they high-performing, they are super cool people! Their knowledge, experience, friendliness, professionalism, expediency, know-how, and one of the biggest traits - "neighborhood specialist" were instrumental in the recent sell of our Penasquitos home and purchase of our new Scripps Ranch home. We ended up selling for well over asking (and over our goal). The preparation and selling process were smooth and successful.
Emma and Brian then spent months with us viewing homes that were fairly limited due to our 'requirements' and a limited supply of homes in the areas we were looking in. They always seemed available whenever something came up that we wanted more info on or to go see. Their neighborhood experience and expertise was evident by knowing what streets to see and what streets avoid. Makes sense since they both live in and have bought/sold their own residences in Scripps. Then, Emma was able to get us into see a home in an exclusive neighborhood PRE-Listing, for which we submitted an offer that was accepted before it even listed.
