* Staged Homes Sell 73% Faster
* Forty nine percent of buyers’ agents cited that homes staging had an effect
on most buyer’s view of the home.
* In the National Association of Realtors’ (NAR) 2017 Profile of Home Staging, 39 percent of seller’s agents said staging a home “greatly” decreases the amount of time a home stays on the market, and 77 percent of buyer’s agents said a staged listing makes it easier for buyers “to visualize the property as their future home.”
Although staging is optional, it's statistically unwise to be. When you're dealing with such a significant financial transaction, you don't want to settle for a lower selling price or a longer marketing period than you have to.
Did you know that only 10% of people shopping for a new home have the vision to see their belongings in another house? Home staging brings a home to life and can be the key to creating an emotional connection in a potential buyer
Relative to the amount of time and money involved, staging may be one of the most lucrative projects you ever undertake. Potential buyers aren't just looking for a structure to inhabit – they're looking to fulfill their dreams and improve their lifestyles. Staging helps sell those dreams and creates a more emotional purchase that can generate more money for the seller.
Home staging is also beneficial because potential buyers don't want to see work that needs to be done upon moving into the home. For every problem they see, they'll deduct its cost from their offering price. If they see too many problems, they'll pass altogether.

An Example of a Staged Smart home:
Think of a fluid connected home that's fun and functional.
Arrive at the house, your realtor, in person or by remote for you, checks the security status, if all good, then unlocks the front door via phone and now begins the experience of a new possible home.
When inside, as you enter, and the house senses you, depending on the time of day turns on lights, adjusts temperature, open or closes shades and sets the mood of the house. Upon entering the Living or main media area, when you walk into the room, the home entertainment is turned on and cued with a movie about the house, displayed on main TV with mood specific music on presentation video, followed by house music playing while walking through the house.
All fully automated and easy to interact with.
