Staging Your Home? Focus On These Rooms

When you list your home, you want to stage it in a way that appeals to as many buyers as possible. But unless you have an unlimited budget for staging, you’ll likely need to focus on staging a few spaces within your home to make the biggest impact on buyers.

So, the question is—which rooms should you focus on?

A recent survey from home lender Ally (outlined in a recent article from REALTOR Magazine) asked Americans to name their favorite room in a house. According to the survey, these are the top choices:

  • Master bedroom (27 percent)
  • Family room (14 percent)
  • Kitchen (10 percent)
  • Master bathroom (9 percent)

The Takeaway:

So, what does this mean for you? If you’re getting ready to sell your home, you may want to invest a bit of extra time and money in staging your master bedroom, family room, kitchen, and master bath. Because these rooms are the most popular, potential buyers are likely to give them a little extra attention—and if they’re staged well, it could be what pushes them towards buying the home (and getting to enjoy those rooms for themselves).
