What is home staging?

Home staging is not about decorating or interior design, it’s about de-cluttering, depersonalizing a home, and giving it that perfect balance between clean and homey so that a potential home buyer can visualize themselves living there.

Can staging increase the value of my home?

  • On average, a staged home will sell 17% higher than a home that is not staged. (US Housing and Urban Development).
  • The average staging investment was between 1-3%, and yielded a return of 8-10% (National Association of Realtors).
  • 87% of buyers said presentation made a difference in home sales (Aol & Finance Poll).
  • 63% of buyers said they would pay more for a move-in ready home (Maritz Research Poll).
  • Homes sell for 6-9% higher than listing price if professionally staged (National Association of Realtors).
  • Statistics show the initial investment in home staging is significantly less than a single price reduction on your house once it’s on the market.

Can staging sell my home quicker?

  • In a controlled test selling identical homes, professionally staged homes spent 76% less time on the market
  • When a seller invests in staging before they list their home, the home will sell 87% faster
  • 92% of buyers begin with an internet search, making properly staged photos critical in gaining  interest in your home.

Real estate pros often talk about a home’s first impression. These are popularized by TV shows such as HGTV’s Staged to Perfection or Curb Appeal. This is because successful showings are crucial for selling your home quickly at the most return on your investment. In the words of Gary Keller, “Price gets you interest, staging gets you offers”.
