10 Reasons to Professionally Stage Your Property

Professionally staged homes:

1.  Look better than other homes on the market

2.  Spend 88% less time on the market

3.  Sell for 17% more than non-staged homes

4.  Look better in print and Internet ads

5.  Receive more foot traffic

6.  End up on a buyer's "must see" list

7.  Are viewed by buyers as "well maintained"

8.  Are "move-in” ready

9.  Have less reasons for buyers to ask for concessions

10. Professionally staged listings "STAND-OUT" in prospective buyers' minds.

 

The Real Reason to Professionally Stage Your Home = Cost Savings

Selling your home seven months faster means saving money, look at this example:

Monthly Mortgage, Insurance, Taxes and Holding Costs = $2,700

Staged Homes Sell 7 Months Faster Than Non-Staged Homes, so 7 x $2,700 = $18,900

Staging Cost = $2,200

Savings by Staging Home = $16,700
