What is Home Staging?

9 05 2007

Home staging is the process of getting a home ready for sale. Statistics show that homes that have been professionally staged sell for for up to 6.3% more and spend 50% less time on the market.

USA Today did an article on the current trends in Real Estate and how home staging factors in:

“Does it (staging) work? When Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Los Altos, Calif., looked at nearly 2,800 properties in eight U.S. cities in 2004, they found that the staged homes, on average, sold in half the time that the non-staged homes did. The sellers with staged homes ended up with 6.3% more than their asking price, on average, while sellers with non-staged homes sold for 1.6% more than the asking price.” read article

There are more homes currently on the market in Rockland County NY than there have been in the last ten years. Home buyers have many choices and are often visiting dozens of homes before settling on the right one.

Home sellers need to make their home stand out from the crowd. Having your home professionally staged is one way you can stand out from the competition.

Call Rockland Home Staging today to take the guesswork out of getting your home ready for sale!
