It depends on the floor plan, decor.  Sometimes they show better with some furniture.

Why is staging important for the sale of my home?

There are several ways to measure the value of your home: it’s condition, it’s competition, and it’s price.  If your home is not in a condition that matches the quality of it’s competition, then we need to offset that by adjusting our price.  Usually, it will require less out-of-pocket expense for you to change the house’s appearance up front, rather than offering an allowance while still listing at a lower price.
