$40K over asking with staging

This home was just fully remodeled and staged prior to going on the market. Within the first few days, and multiple offers it sold at $40k over asking price. Staging truly took it over the top. Defining the kitchen spaces through use of furniture and furnishings creates that vision of the buyer that a =vacant space does not. Clearly this was the case for an open island and hearth room kitchen. Went from confusing spaces to clearly a showcase.
