Market Advantage

Staging and preparing your home for sale will give you
a competitive edge and help you sell faster & at a higher price.

Home staging is flourishing in real estate markets across North America and is listed as one of Entrepreneur Magazine's 2006 “Hot List” businesses. A 2003 HomeGain U.S. nation-wide survey of real estate agents established that an investment in basic home improvements and home staging services before a sale yielded the highest returns on investment. See also a 2006 national survey on the length of time staged and non-staged homes spend on the market.

Research shows that:

  • Staged homes show better than competing homes for sale.
  • Staged homes often sell for more money and in less time than non-staged homes.
  • Photos of staged homes look much better in print and internet advertising.
  • Staged homes are recognized as properties ready to sell and are more likely to be shown by realtors.
  • Staged homes are recognized by buyers as the best homes to view.
This house sold with multiple offers, closing $181,000 over the list price in 14 days.  My staging services were an integral part of the sale - T. McLaughlin
