Stage and Sell

September 9, 2013

When our home was on the market back in 2008, we did a few things to get it ready to sell. Ask me sometime about laying a laminate floor with only a dull hacksaw and a step stool as tools! Other than that, we kept it clean for showings and hoped for the best. We didn’t think much about staging our home to sell, though, and I wonder if it would have made a difference.

I ran across an infographic about staging and I have to say that I’m impressed with the results! According to the Real Estate Staging Association, sellers who staged their homes before listing sold them 79% faster than those with unstaged homes and saved more than $2,000 in mortgage costs.

What do you think? Have you ever staged a home for sale? Do you think it made a difference?

    I worked for a staging company for years. I saw houses that had been sitting for months, sell the day after we staged it for well over asking! People are afraid to make the investment since it can be quite pricey, but I can testify, if done right you get every penny back and then some.
