To Stage, or Not To Stage?

Hear me out for just a minute…

A survey by Coldwell Banker found that staged homes sell for more than 6% above the asking price. So on a $300,00 home that’s an increase up to $18,000!

Buyers are willing to spend 1% to 5% more of the dollar value on a staged home than a non-staged home.

When you hear “home staging,” what are your first thoughts? Maybe that it costs too much, or “I already have furniture,” or that it isn’t necessary? Well let’s iron out some of those concerns…

Yes, staging has some up front costs. However, realtors who work with buyers say most are willing to offer more money for a staged home compared to one that is similar but not staged. Think you’ll see that initial investment come back pretty quick? YES!

Already have furniture? One of our most popular packages includes recommendations for staging your own furniture. A set of fresh eyes can make a big difference. This is a valuable asset to selling your home. What is there to lose?

No, home staging isn’t necessary…but, neither is dessert, but it certainly helps right?? Most buyers are positively impacted by home staging.

How about some more statistics? 81% of buyers say it makes it easier to visualize the property as their future home. Once staged, homes spend an average of 73% less time on the market. THAT’S HUGE!!

Just consider what side of the statistics you want to be on when it comes to the biggest sale you could ever make.
