Why Staged Homes Sell BetterJuly 18, 2011
Experienced REALTORS® know that a vacant house is more difficult to sell than a beautifully staged home. An empty house can seem stark and uninviting to prospective buyers, which can make them want to rush through a showing.
Professional staging brings a house to life. It creates a warm and inviting environment that encourages buyers to spend more time in the home and emotionally connect with it. It also helps them to imagine how the home will look when they live there.
Statistics show that staged homes sell about 17 percent faster and get a significantly higher selling price than unstaged homes; so the cost of staging is almost always covered by the increased profits at sales time. If you are preparing to sell your home, ask your REALTOR® about which local home stagers they recommend.
