WASHINGTON (March 14, 2019) – As the spring home buying season kicks off, a new survey from the National Association of Realtors® shows that 83 percent of buyers’ agents say that staging makes it easier for buyers to visualize a property as their future home, according to NAR’s 2019 Profile of Home Staging,www.nar.realtor/reports/profile-of-home-staging(link is external).

“Buying a house is more than a financial decision; it is an emotional decision as well. Buyers aren’t just making an investment in a property, they are purchasing a place to call home; to raise their children; to begin a new chapter, or to retire to a new season of life,” said NAR President John Smaby, a second-generation Realtor® from Edina, Minnesota and broker at Edina Realty.
