Is Home Staging Worth It?

November 23rd, 2007 · 2 Comments

Home sellers often wonder if paying for a service to stage their home is worth the money. According to the statistics from stagedhomes.com, staging results in a sales prices that is on average 6.9% higher and with 50% less time on the market. The findings here probably have some bias but there has not been too many studies conducted to give a valuation to staging.

Staging services can range from adding simple accessories and rearranging furniture to renting large scale furniture pieces. They declutter and unpersonalize to create a place where it’s easier for prospective buyers to imagine themselves in the home. Essentially, stagers work with a person’s time frame and budget to transform a home to appeal to the most number of buyers at a cost typically between $500 to $2,000 and the process does not take a long time. It only adds a small amount to the costs of selling a home with the potential of huge benefits from a higher price and quicker sale.


There are countless numbers of staging success stories featured on shows such as Flip This House and Designed to Sell. Here’s just one such story featured on ABC’s 20/20.
