Depending on where you live the statistics will differ slightly but the fact remains that when a properly staged home is priced right it will sell 2-5 times faster and for 5% to 20% more! For example, let’s use a very conservative 5% on a home sale of $300,000. This would mean the seller would pocket $15,000 more than their competitors un-staged property!!
Besides being a great way to make your home appear more attractive, shorten the time it sits on the market and increase equity in your property, home staging can also be tax deductible! (depending on where you live and/or circumstances – verify with your accountant).
In a survey done in 2009 of 100 real estate agents by HomeGain.com, agents estimated that a small investment of around $300 to stage a home returned an average of 586% ! Home Staging literally pays for itself several times over!
