How Staging Actually Helps Sell Your Home

April 18, 2015

Did you know that potential home buyers form an opinion about a home within the first 7-10 seconds of arriving?

For many homeowners, the concept of “professional home staging” is shedding new light on how to promote a home in today's marketplace. In the past, homeowners were left to their own to prepare for home showings. They could ask an agent for ideas, some real estate agents were just as perplexed at working out the details as the homeowner. Today, the best agents understand the power of effective visual marketing to get you the most dollars for your home in the shortest time.

It is important to realize that home staging is not always home decorating. Often reducing clutter and personal touches can be the key to a buyer seeing their self in a home. A professional stager has the eye to fine tune the items and furniture that are already in the home and show it in a whole new way.

Simply put, Home Staging is one of the best ways to:

  • Maximize the number of potential buyers who view your home.
  • Lower the number of days on the market before you receive an offer.
  • Generate the best offer on you home for sale.

According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the average staging investment is between 1 and 3% of the home's asking price, which generates a return of 8 to 10%. In a national poll, sellers who spent $500 on staging recovered over 343% of the cost when they sold their home.
