Why Should You Stage Your Home?
• A staged home will sell, on average, 17% higher than a home that is not staged.
(US Housing and Urban Development)
• In controlled tests selling identical homes, professionally staged vs. those not
staged, the non-staged houses sold in 102 days, while the staged houses sold in
45 days. (Real Estate Staging Association)
• According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the average staging
investment is between 1 and 3% of the home's asking price, which generates a
return of 8 to 10%.

• It is estimated that only 10% of home buyers can visualize the potential of a
home. That means 90% are not going to be able to look past imperfections.
A professional stager can help buyers see past imperfections and even turn some
into unique advantages.
