In an effort to provide you with quick and unbiased facts, we’ve outlined exactly what you need to know about staging a home
So, does staging your home actually work? We did some research and paired it with our knowledge of the industry:
Yes, staging your home works. Typically, you can expect to sell your home an average of 60-73% faster and with a 10-17% increase in the total sales price. The average cost to hire a professional stager is 1% of the home sales price, so staging a home provides an impressive return on investment.
Staging your property might be one of the smartest decisions you can make to increase your return on investment. If this idea sounds appealing to you, let’s first get a clear understanding of what staging a home looks like.
What is Home Staging?
Home staging is when either a homeowner or a professional home stager transforms spaces within a property to make it look more clean, organized, and appealing to potential buyers. Typically, home staging doesn’t involve any renovation projects. Instead, it includes bringing in fresh new furniture, using existing decorations, or rearranging and decluttering so the space stands out.
It’s up to you, of course, to choose to stage your home yourself or use a professional. However, you do need to be aware of the pros and cons of both as their are some major benefits to each option.
The Pros & Cons of Hiring a Home Staging Professional
Hiring a professional home stager is typically a good move: it’s quick, painless, and a smooth process. But we want to make you aware of a couple of things to consider before choosing.
Hiring a professional property stager has more pros than cons. If you choose to hire one, you’ll see higher offers on your property, it will be less stressful on you and your family, you won’t need to worry about buying new furniture or decorations, and you won’t need to be good at decorating. It really is a smooth and seamless process.
However, there is one major con: the standard home staging cost is about 1% of the home’s sales price.
The Pros & Cons of Home Staging By Yourself
If you have the skills, time, and money to stage your home by yourself, you should absolutely consider it.
It can be a fun project that challenges you to push your creativity and sales skills. The best of all, the reward is really great!
Here are some pros and cons for staging your home yourself:
