Why professionally staged homes sell faster...
Buyers have little imagination when it comes to getting past a home that is full of the current homeowners personality. Even vacant homes prove to be a problem with buyers trying to envision how their own furnishings will fit. The faster buyers can see themselves living in the property, the faster a contract will be written.
We all know your goal:
Sell your client's home in the shortest amount of time for the greatest amount of money
This just happens to be the same goal of staging. By making properties appeal to the widest array of buyers, the odds of a contract are substantially increased. Staged homes photograph better and show better than un-staged homes.
