    Staging can make a big difference for a listing. In fact, according to a report from the National Association of Realtors, 87% of buyers’ agents say staging helps shoppers better visualize a property as their home. What’s more? It even impacts the dollar amount they offer.

    According to the report, 23% of agents say real estate staging boosts offers by 1% to 5%, while another 21% say it’s somewhere between a 6% and 15% premium. But home staging is expensive, right? And it also takes lots of time and skill… or does it?

    A decade ago it might have, but now, thanks to virtual staging software and technology, staging a listing is really just a few clicks of your mouse away.
