Staging Stats

You never get a second chance to make that first impression, or why to use a stager before you put your home on the market…

Here’s a look at the hard and fast numbers on staging versus not staging a home on the market:

Did you know that the median time homes nationwide spent on the market in January 2013 was 71 days?

According to a survey by the International Association of Home Staging Professionals and StagedHomes.com, 95% of staged homes sell in 23 days or less, on average.

Time is money!

Economics on staging a home:

  • Sell 2 months faster and save on average 2 months on mortgage, utilities, and maintenance:
    • Mortgage, taxes, and insurance: $2000/month
    • Utilities: $500/month
    • Lawn, cleaning, and maintenance: $200/month
  • See a 3% minimum increase in the final sale price of your home. ($9000 on a $300k home)
