Room Transformations That Show the Power of Staging

Home staging can make a difference. Here’s the proof.

About 80% of buyer’s agents say staging helps their clients better visualize living in a home. A third say it can even increase the home’s value between 1% and 10% when compared to similar homes that aren’t staged, according to the National Association of REALTORS®’ 2023 Profile of Home Staging.

Regina Leahy, founder of Connecticut-based staging firm Simply Staged(link is external), shows what transformations are possible in key areas of a home, including painted white interiors, decluttering while opening layouts and incorporating a few decorative accessories.

Case in point: The listing price for a recent property Leahy staged went from $699,000 to $772,000 after she worked to completely declutter the home. The staged home received multiple offers on the first weekend it was listed and sold for $805,000.

Check out some of these before and after pictures from Leahy’s portfolio to see the difference home staging can make.
