Yes, staging a home helps it sell faster and at a higher price for a few reasons. In today’s market, roughly 85% of homebuyers start their search on the internet forming impressions within seconds of viewing a home. When a home is staged well, it photograph’s well and makes the kind of first impression that encourages viewers to take the next step which is contacting their Realtor for a showing.
Studies have shown buyers decide if they’re interested in a home within the first 30 seconds of entering it. Homes that are staged look more ‘move in ready’ and that’s appealing to any buyer.
Data compiled by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development indicate that staged homes sell for approximately 17 percent more than non-staged homes.
