This is a question we know sellers often grapple with, and there are certainly pros and cons to both.
Staging can help some buyers. It will often make a property look more modern and updated. It can also help buyers see how a space can be used, especially if you have a home that has a unique layout or space design. In this case, it can help buyers see how rooms can be divided, and where furniture should be laid out.
That said, there are buyers that have their own design vision, and a staged space could distract from that vision. If you do decide to stage, we recommend keeping things clean and uncluttered, with no personal objects. Staging can also be costly, so it is important to look at your budget and the potential costs.
Ultimately, you and your realtor can make a decision that makes the most sense for you and for your property.
