Does Staging make a Home Sell For More?

Should I Stage my Home Before I sell?

Staging property before you sell can be a great way to increase the sales price of your home. NAR recently published it’s 2015 home staging report.  It revealed that staging a home can increase the amount a buyer is willing to pay for a home by up to 1-5%. This is according to surveys taken by buyers agents.  The results also showed that more than 30% of buyers are willing to pay more for a home that it staged. Of that 30%, about 15% revealed a 6-10% increase in price.

The report also revealed that the average cost of staging a home is around $700. But, if you are on a budget here are some ideas to help prepare your home to sell.

  • A theme for each room can really add a nice touch, like theater decor in the media room, or a reading nook in a
    child’s room or study area.
  • Depersonalize the space so that potential buyers can visualize themselves in the home.
  • The walls should be painted with soft colors, neutral
  • You can rearrange the furniture in rooms to make the rooms look brighter and larger.
  • Get a second opinion so that you will have an idea how buyers will see your home when they walk in.
