Many stagers and real estate agents make the claim that home staging gets homes sold faster.
"Less time on the market " is the phrase most commonly used.
The truth is, there are no guarantees with home staging.
The reason for this is simple....
there are far too many factors that can extend time on the market that home stagers have no control over.
The Price Isn't Right
If the home is priced too high, no matter how good the staging, it's not going to sell. Staging creates value, but it doesn't justify an unrealistic price.

Home staging won't change wetlands restrictions or home owner association rules.
Home staging won't silent noisy neighbors.
Maintain and Market
