Does Home Staging Really Work?

Does Home Staging Really Work? Are you thinking about selling your home, but are hesitant because your furnishings are outdated? Increasingly sellers are opting to hire professionals to spruce up their homes before putting them on the market. Or realtors, like myself, will come in and have professional staging, but many of my sellers ask, does staging make that much of a difference for home sales?

Absolutely! Studies have shown that staging has a significant impact on a home’s sale price and time on the market. According to the National Association of Realtors, staged homes sell 73% faster than non-staged homes. Why? One of the reasons staging is so effective is that it helps potential buyers to visualize themselves living in a home. Remember why I always say to declutter and remove personal effects? It is because of this principle. When a home is staged, it is decorated in a way that is appealing to a wide range of buyers, without personal effects. It can also help highlight a home’s best features and downplay its flaws. Professional stagers identify a home’s best features and create a layout that showcases them. Realtors do this as well. Depending on the scale of a home, a realtor can also determine when to bring in stagers and when a simple declutter will do. A factor that we use to determine this is how long you want your home to be on the market and what are you thinking the home is worth, which you can check on the bottom of this video. Staging can also help your home stand out from the competition. According to more research by the National Association of Realtors, the average staging investment is between 1 and 3% of a home’s asking price. However, staged homes typically sell for 6 to 20% more than non-staged homes. This means that sellers who invest in staging can often recoup their investment. While staging can be a powerful tool for selling a home, it’s important to work with a professional stager and realtor who have extensive experience in your local market.
