According to The National Association of Realtors, a staged home will sell for 17% more on average than a non-staged home, and 95% of staged homes sell in 11 days or less. That is statistically 87% faster than non-staged homes.
Benefits of Home Staging:
- Turnkey, move-in ready home: Many buyers want a home they can move into and enjoy immediately; research shows that a large percentage of buyers are willing to pay more for move-in ready homes.
- Competitive advantage: You will stand out in comparison to other homes listed in your area. Even if the market isn’t highly competitive in your area, you will still want to be top-of-mind for buyers.
- Easier to market: With many home buyers starting their search on Zolo.ca or Realtor.ca; a staged home will photograph and show better online and in printed marketing materials. Therefore, attracting more buyers to book a showing.
- Buyers can visualize themselves living in your home: This is notably true after a move-out, or before a property has been occupied.
