The National Association of REALTORS (NAR) has released it's 2017 Profile of Home Staging. The profile is based on a survey of several thousand agents and focuses on the impact of staging on the home selling process.
Among the Key Findings:
77% of buyer agents say staging makes it easier for buyers to visualize a property as their future home
49% of buyer agents say staging a home increases the dollar amount offered
62% of listing agents say staging a home decreases the time on market
Other Interesting Data
The survey also reveals only 8% of real estate agents hire a professional to stage their listings. Our real estate team falls within that 8%. We hire Debbie Lea to stage our occupied homes and The Cozy Home to stage our vacant properties. Both stagers are truly exceptional at their craft. Talk to our recent clients and they'll agree professional staging has increased their home's selling price and decreased their listing's time on market.
