Staging a home as part of the listing process is helping to sell homes faster and for more money.
According to NAR’s 2017 Profile of Home Staging, 50% of staged homes sold for one to ten percent more compared to similar homes on the market.
Staging your home makes it easier for buyers to visualize living in the home with their own belongings. Often simple things will make a big impact.
The survey showed the most common home improvement projects recommended were de-cluttering the home (93%), deep cleaning of the entire home (89%), cleaning the carpet (81%) and removing pets during showings (80%).
It shouldn’t be a surprise that staged Living Rooms have the largest impact followed by Master Bedrooms and Kitchens. Those are the areas where homeowners spend most of their time.
Staging is an important step I encourage all of my sellers to do before we put your home on the market. I’ll be happy to provide any information you need or connect you with an outstanding professional.
