1. More money from the sale-
U.S. Housing and Urban Development reports that a staged house sells, on average, 17% higher than a non-staged house.

2. Your house will sell faster-
Studies show the longer a home is on the market, the less it sells for.

The New York Village Voice reported that the average number of days on the market for a staged house was 13.9 versus 30.9 days for an unstaged house.

3. The Cost of Staging Pays for itself, and then some! Its like getting a faster sale for free!

In a 2003 HomeGain Survey of over 2000 Realtors it was discovered that sellers who spent up to $1000 Staging their home recovered almost 200% of the cost in the sale of their home.

4.Less than 10% of home sellers can objectively stage their home on their own. If you can't view your home as a product, you're already in trouble with the sale.
