Staging is an investment...not an expense. It adds value to your home. Studies have shown that a staged property can sell, on average, for 6.4% over the list price. In comparison to the potential Return on Investment, home staging is quite inexpensive. The longer your home sits on the market, the more it will cost you to carry it. 79% of sellers are willing to spend up to $5000 to get their house ready for sale. 63% of buyers are willing to pay more for a house that is move-in ready....now that's worth it! Remember this...the investment in Staging your home will always be less than your first price reduction!
