Top 5 Reasons to Use a Professional Home Stager
You will get a greater return on your Investment
According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the average staging investment is between 1 and 3
percent of the home's asking price, which generates a return of 8 to 10 percent.
The cost of staging doesn’t cost a dime. In a 2007 Home Gain Survey of over 2000 realtors, it was discovered that sellers who invested in staging services for their home, recovered over 343% of the cost in the sale of their home.
The longer your home is on the market, the lower the price. So stage first! According to a National Association of Realtors survey, homes that sold after four weeks on the market sold for 6% less than ones within the first four weeks! Don’t be in a position where you have to lower your price. Have your house staged first!
Your house will sell faster, which equals less headaches and hassles. USA Today reported in a Coldwell Banker survey of over 2800 homes that the staged homes, on average, sold in half the time that the non-staged homes did.
Only 10% of home buyers can visualize the potential of a home. This is why staging a home is critical! You don’t want the advantages of your home overlooked and left up to the buyer’s imagination.
