Latest Home Staging Statistics


The RESA (Real Estate Staging Association) Survey of Staged Homes was released about the success of home staging in the previous year. Here is an overview of the survey for both vacant and occupied homes (13k homes surveyed):

  • 85% of staged homes sold for 5-23% over the listing price.

  • With an average staging investment of 1% of the listing price, approximately 75% of sellers saw an return on their investment of 5-15% over asking price. (Seller received staging costs back and then some!)

  • Staged homes sold within 23 days, on average.

this means that if you have a home on the market for $400,000, invest $4,000 in home staging, you could fetch a $20,000 return in less than a month!



•    Staged homes appeal to a broader range of buyers, thus creating more offers.
•    Home staging removes "buyer objections" which alleviates buyers asking for concessions. 
•    Staging creates a higher a selling price and at times biding wars.  
•    Staged homes have a marketing advantage over unstaged homes in any market. 
•    Staging emphasis the homes best features, not the lifestyle of the seller. 
•   Buyer's are more apt to buy a staged homes. Why? because maintenance issues, repairs and outdated design elements have been addressed.
• Staging Homes create "Move In Ready" homes. People don't have time to fix up homes anymore, they want instant gratification.


TIP: the cost (investment) in staging is always less the first price reduction and extended carrying costs! Stage first to keep more money on the table. Even in a sellers market staging it is proven to bring in higher selling price.
