What are the benefits of staging and should a home seller do it? One benefit to staging your home is that it can appeal to a larger selection of potential buyers. Staging presents your home in the best light possible and shows buyers what the full potential of the home is. Staging gives your home a “move-in” ready feel. Other benefits are that it gives a positive first impression, makes your home seem bigger, shows the homes potential, and grabs the attention of the buyer’s agents. In other words, your home stands out from the crowd. I’m Karen Douglas, your Mortgage Genie who’s helping make your dreams a reality.
