Here are 5 things you may or may not know about the benefits of home staging:

1.  You will make a lot more money
In a 2014 survey of over 3,500 professionally staged homes, over half sold for 10% more than their unstaged neighbors’ homes.

2.  The cost of staging won’t cost you a dime
When sellers spend an average of 1% of the value of their homes on staging, they see (on average) a 1,000% return on investment!

3.  Your house will sell much faster
In a recent Real Estate Staging Association® (RESA) survey, professionally staged homes spent 72% less time on the market.

4.  Your online photos will stand out…
According to the National Association of Realtors® (NAR), over 95% of home buyers search online first. By looking at those photos and pre-judging the home, they will decide whether or not to call the agent or to visit the home. If buyers are not impressed with the photos, they will move on to the next listing.

5.  Not staging will only help to sell your competition before you do…
Competition can be stiff and today’s buyers have very high expectations. Successful agents know that the key to competing is professional home staging. Why? Because staging prior to photography will create a great online presence, which will drive traffic to the home and bring in much higher offers.

Can you think of any other reasons to stage first?
