I am often asked, “Why does a vacant house need to be staged?” At times, it is more important to stage a vacant home than a lived in one. It is very difficult for prospective buyers to visualize their possessions in an empty space.
Without any furniture, it is almost impossible to gauge whether or not a buyer’s existing sofa or bedroom set will fit. Also, sometimes it is difficult to define a room without any furniture in it. And vacant houses are cold and unwelcoming, there is no emotional connection – a vacant house is nobody’s home.
