Why should I stage my home?
The US HAUD reports that a staged home will sell for, on average, 17% higher than a vacant home. And the National Association of Realtors reports that staged homes sell approximately 67% faster than vacant homes.
What is home staging?
Home staging is the act of preparing and showcasing a house for sale to attract a large pool of prospective buyers. Professional staging is a powerful marketing tool, not only giving a seller a marketable advantage over the competition, but potentially fetching a higher sales price and reducing the number of Days on Market (DOM) for a listing. As competition in the housing market increases, a growing number of real estate agents and home sellers are enlisting the services of professional home stagers to meet the high expectations of buyers and help sell a home fast for the highest price possible.
The longer a home stays on the market, the further its price drops, inviting bargain hunters and low offers. Hence, for the best return on investment, sellers should stage their homes prior to listing. Staging accentuates a home’s best features and downplays its flaws, ensuring it shows well and makes a good first impression on prospective buyers.
Several studies, including the recent National Association of Realtors® Profile of Home Staging report, back the merits of home staging. In the infographic, we have highlighted why staging has become a key selling strategy for agents and sellers, along with the associated costs and tips on why you should stage your home. Considering the potential payback, staging is indeed a smart investment for home sellers!
