Lake Norman;Stage it, Show it, Sell It:Survey Shows Home Staging Helps Sell Homes for Higher Price

Home Staging at Lake Norman

I read an interesting article that I thought I should share with you.   The articlecenters around the Internet and home staging to assist sellers sell it faster and seller it for a higher price.

This begs to ask if staging is a viable marketing tool! 

The obvious answer is— well duh! Of course, it makes sense to show your home in the best light for a prospective buyer. Who would argue the fact the nicer the home looks, the more likely it is to sell faster and for more money than another that does not show well? Home buying is just like dating, you want to look your best!

Home Gain, a nationwide consumer focused real estate website recently conducted a survey of real estate agents nationwide.

The Envelope Please: an overwhelming 91% of the agents recommended professional staging. The returns on investment appear well worth it— staging costs ranged from $400 to $600 but increased home sale prices $1,900 to $2,400! The article also mentioned a 2007 study by the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents (NAEBA) (polling 400 agents) which indicated staging costs for a 2300 square foot home ranged from $500 to over $1000. (Of course, larger multi-million dollar homes could raise the staging costs substantially.)
