Staging Statistics
Here are some great reasons to stage your home.....

  • Staging costs less than a price reduction.
According to a National Association of Realtors survey, homes that sold after four weeks
on the market sold for 6% less than ones within the first four weeks!  Don’t be in a
position where you have to lower your price. Have your house staged first!

  • You will make more money.
U.S. Housing and Urban Development reports that a staged home will sell, on average, 17%
higher than an un-staged home.

  • Your house will sell faster, which equals less hassle.
The New York Village Voice reported that the average number of days an un-staged home
is on the market is 30.9 versus 13.9 for a staged home.

  • Staging costs can often be recovered.
In a 2007 Home Gain Survey of over 2000 realtors, it was discovered that sellers who
spent typically $500 on staging services for their home recovered over 343% of the cost in
the sale of their home.

  • Most home sellers cannot view their house objectively.
If you can’t see objectively, you can’t package effectively.  Have a staging professional get
your home into its most advantageous condition for showing.

  • Only 10% of homebuyers can visualize the potential of a home.
This is why staging a home is critical! You don’t want the advantages of your home
overlooked and left up to the buyer’s imagination.

  • Stand apart from the competition.
Right now the number of homes for sale on the market is at a record high.  Competition is
stiff and buyers have very high expectations.  Successful agents know that staging gives the
property that competitive edge.
