Home Staging isn't a new industry. But in the last decade it has become more and more prominent in the real estate industry. It could be because of an unstable real estate market or it could be that more and more people watch shows on networks like HGTV that talk about home staging. Whatever the reason may be, an increasing number of Realtors® are embracing home staging as a selling tool they use on a regular basis.
According to NAR, 49% of Realtors® believe that home staging has an impact for buyers. And a full third of all Realtors® are using home staging on every listing. That means that homes that were not staged will be competing with a large number of homes designed to appeal to a large number of buyers.
