Staging Statistics

The home staging business is a success because:

·         U.S. Housing and Urban Development reports that a
staged house sells, on average, 17% higher than an
unstaged house.

·         Statistics suggest staged homes sell at an average of
6.32% over what they are listed for.  Non staged  homes
only average 1.6% over the listed price.


·         The New York Village Voice reported that the average
number of days on the market for a staged house was
13.9 versus 30.9 days for an unstaged house.

·         2003 HomeGain survey of 2,000 real estate agents
nationwide found that moderately priced home
improvements, ranging from $80 – $2800, made in
preparation for sale, actually yielded the highest returns
when a house is sold.

·         Only 10% of home buyers can actually visualize the
potential of a home.

·         A  study by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry found that a $700 paint job results    in  a 200% recovery of the cost upon resale of the home.
