Absolutely, selling homes faster and for a better price are the two main reasons for investing in home staging. A good home staging job will make your property look more appealing to potential buyers, which translates to faster sales for homes on the market. According to the real estate staging association staged homes spend approximately 73% less time on the market compared to their un-staged counterparts.
What is the home staging?
Home staging is the process of preparing a home for sale to increase its appeal to a wide range of homebuyers. Some of the features of home staging include decluttering, depersonalizing, adding furniture, updating hardware and lighting and other actions that will make the home look more appealing. Not only that but considering many people will see the home through online or virtual showings, home stagers must take quality pictures so that you can make a good first impression on buyers.
How much faster do staged properties sell?
As mentioned previously about 73% of staged homes sell faster than un-staged homes. To be specific on how much faster they sell, Forbes found that on average staged homes sell 87% faster than non-staged homes. They also found that 95% of staged homes sold in 11 days or less.
How much more do staged homes sell for?
Another big benefit of home staging is selling homes for a higher price than their non-staged counterparts. Forbes found that staged homes sell for 17% more on average than non-staged homes, which speaks to the ROI of investing in a quality home stager.
