How Does Staging Help a Seller?

Here are some great points sent to me by my Home Staging Expert.  I have seen a couple of properties sell very quickly after being staged.  If you are thinking of selling in 2019 we should chat about this step.

  • Staged homes present and show better than competing houses for sale. Especially important as the market becomes more balanced.
  • Staged properties sell faster compared to those that have not been staged ( Proctor & Gamble’s av listing time for staged properties 13.9 days)
  • Staged properties sell for more (on average 6.4% above list according to Coldwell Banker)
  • Buyers viewed professionally staged listings as “well maintained” and “move in ready”. 63% of buyers are willing to pay more for a move in ready home (Maritz Research)
  • Staged properties “stand out” from other non staged properties listed at the same time.
  • Staged properties present better in online photos and increase viewings (91% of buyers begin their search online)
