Professionally staged properties often sell for 6-10% more than non-staged homes. Additionally, they are on the market 50% less time.
The amount of money you would spend on staging your home professionally is minimal compared to the amount you could earn with a higher sale. The National Association of Realtors figures that the average investment of home staging is around 1 to 3% and that the average return is 8 to 10%!
As an example, on average, a $300,000 home might spend $1500 in home staging, but they could see a minimum of $18,000 up to $50,000 on the resale! A $700,000 home might spend $2500 to stage the property and they could increase their amount of the resale by $42,000 to $79,000!
In 2009, Home Gain Survey discovered that home staging could generate a 586% return on investment! Few investments prove to be less risky or more worthwhile.
The National Association of Realtors has found that if a home is on the market for more than four weeks, it sells on average for 6% less than homes that sell within the first four weeks. Professional home staging can decrease the amount of time your property is on the market, saving you money because you don’t have to pay the mortgage or utilities, and increasing the price it sells for.
Over 90% of buyers search online for potential homes and often discard those that have no pictures, a minimum number of pictures, or poor quality pictures that display a home that isn’t ideal. You can stand out by investing in home staging in order to present stunning photographs of your beautifully designed living spaces and thus gain more interest.
