Your home will not sell for more money if you stage your home! Real or Myth?
What do you think about staging? Do you think it works? Do you think it helps sell a home or do you disagree with it? These are just some questions about staging your home.
Simple questions you might think and basically a lot of people think staging can sell the home for more money. Staging definitely works especially in this day and age where you're competing with so many other sellers. Staging will definitely make the home stand out.
This will help you home kind of be more unique, and it will help sell faster. And based on National Association of Realtors, 49% of buyer agents stated that home staging had an effect on most buyers’ view of the home. Now 38% of sellers’ agents, these are listing agents, said that they stage all sellers homes prior to listing them for sale. So almost four out of ten stage houses, but 62% never stage homes. 39% of sellers’ agents stated that staging a home greatly decreases the amount of time the home is on the market. So meaning, it helps them sell it much faster compared to the neighbors who have not staged.
And are you ready for this? 77% of buyers’ agents said that staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home. It can definitely catch the buyers’ attention. It appealed to them a lot faster, but don't be fooled by the fact that if you stage a home, you're going to sell your home for over market value. You can stage a house, you can do marketing until it turns blue, but if it's not priced properly then you're going to have a hard time selling it.
This is just a supplement to sell quickly. It's not a one-size fits all solution that you think, "Oh I'm going to stage my house and that's it. I can just do it all my own." No, there still has to be strategy and staging is just one of the pillars.
