Professional staging involves sophisticated design ideas that achieve stunning results to help make your client's home worth more money.Statistics suggest that staging a home typically provides a 343% return on investment. According to the Real Estate Staging Association’s The Consumer Guide to Real Estate Staging (2009), staged homes sell 85-89% percent faster than non-staged homes The same publication stated that non-staged, occupied homes (in their 2008 study) averaged 57 days on the market. After staging, the same homes averaged 6 days on the market (89% less time than non-staged.) Staged vacant homes in the same study averaged 28 days on the market versus 190 days on the market for non-staged (85% less time) vacant homes.
This home sat semi-vacant on market for 8 months before staging. After staging (below), it went into escrow within 3 weeks for $40,000 more than previous offers.
Older homes, newer homes, occupied or unoccupied/vacant, we can make any residential property look and feel like a comfortable, warm and inviting "home" to potential buyers.
