You’ve put in a lot of effort making your home “yours.” You have a large family, and you showcase them with pictures. Your son wanted his room painted black, so you obliged. And you think those plaid kitchen curtains are perfect. But now it’s time to sell your house because you’re changing jobs, downsizing or moving closer to family.
Anyone would be lucky to get your house, right? But did you know erasing “you” from your house can pay off? Did you know it could result in more potential buyers? Did you know going an extra step and enlisting a home stager can result in big returns in numerous ways?
Consider these statistics:
- Staged homes spend 83% less time on the market, according to com.
- The average staging investment is between 1% and 3% of the home’s asking price and generates a return of 8% to 10%, according to the National Association of Realtors.
- Sellers who spent $500 on staging recovered more than 343% of the cost when the home sold, according to com.
