Does a Staged Home Sell Faster?


Should I stage my home before I sell it?

In the past decade, home staging services have grown in leaps and bounds. Once considered a service that was not necessary for selling a home has become an important part of the selling process.

Staging is a strategic marketing tool designed to show a property in its best possible light. Professional stagers and many realtors believe in the power of this technique – potential buyers can see all the possibilities and sellers can get top-dollar and a quicker sale.

According to the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA):

  • Professionally listed staged properties simply look better
  • Spend 73% less time on the market
  • Typically sell for more money
  • End up on buyers’ “must see” lists
  • Are viewed as “well-maintained;” and have fewer concessions requested of the seller

So what’s the verdict? Staging your home BEFORE selling it leads to a faster sale.

If you are selling your home, ask your Realtor about using a professional home staging service. If, if the cost is too high – ask what you can do to stage the home on your own. Every bit helps!
