Top Ten Reasons To Stage Your Property

1) You Will Make More Money

According to the *National Association of Realtors (NAR), the average staging investment is between 1 and 3 percent of the property’s asking price which generates a return of 8 to 10 percent!

2) The property will Sell Faster which means More Money and Less Headache and Stress

A National Association of Realtors survey found that the longer a property stays on the market, the further below list price it drops. Properties that sold in the first 4 weeks averaged 1% more than thelist price; 4 to 12 weeks averaged 5% less; 13 to 24 weeks averaged 6.4% less; than list price; and 24 weeks averaged more than 10% less than list price.

3) The Cost of Staging Doesn’t Cost A Dime

In a Home Gain Survey of over 2000 Realtors, it was discovered that home staging typically provides a 586% return on investment!

4) Most Home Owners Cannot View Their Property Objectively

If you can’t see objectively, you can’t “package” effectively. Have a staging professional get  your property into its most advantageous condition for showing.

5) Your online photos will stand-out amongst the competition

According to a NAR profile of buyers, over 90% of buyers are searching for homes online first before deciding to visit. Give buyers a reason to drive to your property by having multiple photos of beautifully staged rooms that will stand out among the competition!

6) Only 10% of Homebuyers Can Visualize the Potential of a Home

That’s why staging a property is critical! You don’t want the advantages of the property overlooked and left up to the buyer’s imagination.

7) The Longer The Property is on the Market, the Lower the Price Will Be, so STAGE FIRST!

According to a National Association of Realtors survey, property that sold after 4 weeks on the market sold for 6% less then ones within the first 4 weeks! Don’t be in a position where you have to lower your price…have your property staged!

8) The Money You Make On the Sale of Your Property May Be TAX FREE and the Money You
