Is Home Staging Worth The Investment? [INFOGRAPHIC]
Not sure if staging is worth the investment? We think it is, and here's why:
1: LESS TIME ON THE MARKET: According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, staged homes spend 73% less time on the market than non-staged homes and typically sell for up to 17% more.
2: VISUALIZATION IS KEY: 77% of agents said that staged listings make it easier for buyers to visualize living in a property, creating an emotional connection.
3: SHINES LIGHT ON POSITIVE ASPECTS: 82% of homebuyers are likely to be distracted from any minor flaws and focus on the positive aspects of a home.
4: BUILDING A CONNECTION: It is important to create an environment that appeals to a wide range of buyers, a place they envision themselves living in. A professional stager knows how to appeal to a variety of personalities through staging. Instead of seeing an empty room, or even worse, a room full of clutter or your specific personal touch, they'll see a staged space where they'll relax after a long day or gather with family on the weekends.
5: GAINING ADVANTAGE: Appealing to buyers emotions during the buying process can result in the willingness to pay top dollar for a home.
