We hear about home staging all the time, but what is fact and what is fiction?
Let's debunk 3 home staging myths! ⬇️
❎ Home staging isn’t necessary when the market is hot.
It may be easier to sell your home in a strong market, but without staging, you could be leaving money on the table. Staged homes sell anywhere between 3-50% over list price on average. Homes that are not staged sell only an average of 1.6% over list price.
❎ When the market is down, you shouldn’t spend extra money to stage your home.
It’s actually quite the opposite. If the housing market is sluggish, it’s all the more reason to stage your home. Staging will give your home an attractive edge over the competition. Not only does a staged home sell for more money, but staging your home helps it sell 73% faster on average.
❎ You will have to move out to have your home staged.
You do not need to move out to have your home staged. Occupied staging is very common, although it may incur an additional fee. Another option to consider if you still plan to live in your home is virtual staging. With virtual staging, you don’t have to worry about having anything physically moved into or out of your home.
