Four Things You Should Know About Staging

July 22, 2018

You’ve probably heard about “home staging”. As the name implies, it’s all
about arranging each room in your home in a way that will make the bestimpression on buyers. Here’s what you need to know about staging if you’re
thinking of listing your property.

1. Staging can get you a higher price.
On average, a fully-staged home tends to sell for 17% more than an unstaged home of the same type in the same local market.  Depending on the current market value of your property, doing some staging in your home could put thousands of extra dollars in your pocket, post-sale.

2. It can speed up the sale.
A study by the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) showed that fully staged homes spend an average of 90% less time on the market. So, if you need to sell quickly – without dropping your price – or you just want the comfort of having offers come in sooner, staging will definitely help.

3. You don’t have to go crazy.
Completely staging every room in your home is going to give you the full
benefits of this strategy. However, you don’t have to go that far. In fact,
just implementing a few simple staging techniques to some key rooms
can make a big difference.
