    We used staging furniture for the sale campaign of our previous to last PPoR; the difference to an empty house was amazing, and certainly helped spike more interest....more WOW factor to get the emotional PPoR buyer too.

    Staging is a must. For the same reasons that builders spend a fortune staging their display homes. Buyers need to see how they could live in the property to make that emotional connection.

    Those cliched 'artfully draped' throws on beds and sofas really turn me off!

    I agree with this as well! We had our home staged when we sold it last year and I specifically told them I still want it to look like someone lives there - not like an immaculate and perfect show home. I didn't want it to look staged, I just wanted it to look better than the stuff that I had in there! More stylish and elegant but not clinical and disconnected.

    It worked by the way, we got well above reserve.

    Agree there is a fine line between it looking too clinical and staged Vs homely and welcoming.

    No - having a house clean and tidy does make a difference (I feel), but banks generally work on house size, room size, location and other fixed aspects like view or pool etc
