According to industry analysis, staged homes sell faster and for a higher price than those that are un-staged. Looking to make an impact but curve some of the cost? Partial staging is the perfect solution to stage the main areas such as the living room, kitchen, dining room, & primary bedroom but leaving the rest to the buyers’ imagination. Staging just some of the areas has proven to still make a significant impact compared to leaving it un-staged or using virtual staging which often leaves buyers disappointed when they show up to view the property and find it empty.
