1. You will get a greater return on your Investment

According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the average staging investment is 1% to 3% of the home’s asking price, which generates a return of 8% to 10% when the home is sold.

2. The cost of staging doesn’t cost a dime

In a Home Gain Survey of over 2000 realtors, it was discovered that sellers who invested in staging services for their home, recovered over 343% of the cost in the sale of their home.

3. The longer your home is on the market, the lower the price

According to a National Association of Realtors survey, homes that sold after four weeks on the market sold for 6% less than ones within the first four weeks! Don’t be in a position where you have to lower your price; have your house Professionally Staged first!4. Your house will sell faster, which equals less headaches and hassles

USA Today reported in a Coldwell Banker survey of over 2800 homes that the staged homes, on average, sold in half the time that the non-staged homes did.

5. Only 10% of homebuyers can visualize the potential of a home

You don’t want the advantages of your home overlooked and left up to the buyer’s imagination. Nine out of every ten people walking in your home have no imagination of the wonderful possibilities your home has to offer them; they just can’t picture it. Are you willing to accept those odds?
