Selling your home can be a stressful and emotional process. Most sellers are trying to close as quickly as possible, get the best offer and generate the most profit. But there is a way to help minimize the stress and maximize the profit: home staging. And it’s definitely worth the investment!
Most sellers have heard about staging, but often question if it costs too much. However, staging is actually a gainful step in the home-selling process. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), 83 percent of buyers visualize toured properties as future homes. Staging a home removes the personal feel, which often results in higher offers and decreases time on the market compared to a vacant home.
Want more profit and higher offers? According to the NAR, 58 percent of sellers are offered more money for staged homes. Staging also generates a 1 to 5 percent increase in the anticipated price and, in some instances, up to 20 percent higher price. Imaging getting 20 percent as a return on investment!
If you’re worried about your house sitting on the market too long, don’t! In a 2018 survey completed by the Real Estate Staging Association, unstaged homes sit on the market an average of 107 days, while staged homes average at just 18 days. The longer your home sits on the market, the less likely you will get the offers you want and the more likely you’ll incur high carrying costs.
