3 Critical Reasons to Stage Your Home When Selling

A beautifully staged room can sell faster.

Home staging is no doubt a crucial step in the home-selling process. It involves arranging furniture, decor, and other items to showcase the home's best features and create a welcoming atmosphere for potential buyers.

But many home sellers wonder if staging a home makes a big enough difference to justify the cost. If this is you, I’ve got some important stats for you!

On average, staging your home for sale can bring in an 8-10% return on investment, and a 1-10% increase in sale price, depending on market conditions and the quality of staging.

According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), a staged home spends an average of 73% less time on the market than a non-staged home. 

From a buyer’s perspective, staging allows them to visualize a home as their own. And when they see a well-staged home, they often perceive it as more valuable and are willing to pay a higher price.

While staging can feel like a pesky expense, it nearly always pays off in the long run. Staging your home can highlight its best features, demonstrate its potential, and create an emotional connection with buyers. A well-staged home will typically sell faster and for a higher price. 

I highly recommend staging your home to maximize its potential and increase your chances of a successful sale!

And if you’re concerned about the cost of staging your home, many of my clients take advantage of the Compass Concierge program, which fronts them for the cost of home improvement services like staging, flooring, painting, and more.
