The Most Important Rooms to Stage for Listings

The National Association of REALTORS® 2015 Profile of Home Staging ranks the most important rooms to be staged, based on a survey of real estate buyer agents. Here’s a look at the top areas:

  1. Living room
  2. Kitchen
  3. Master bedroom
  4. Dining room
  5. Bathroom
  6. Children’s bedroom
  7. Guest bedroom

Overall, the survey found that staging can influence buyers’ perceptions of a home and even the home’s perceived value. Indeed, 32 percent of buyer agent’s say that their clients tend to be more willing to increase their offer by 1 percent to 5 percent of the dollar value; 16 percent say they believe a staged home could potentially raise their buyers’ offer by 6 percent to 10 percent.

The following chart shows just how staging can influence buyers’ perceptions of a home.
