Staging both occupied and vacant homes became the normal protocol about 10 years ago. A stager and their team can drastically help a seller present a listing in its best light, reduce clutter, eliminate over-furnishing, and give a listing instant appeal with some “wow factor”. Our company statistics at Pacific Union International show that the average days on market since 2016 for staged homes is 36 days and for un-staged homes is 56 days. Staged homes average sales price is 10% higher that un-staged homes. So, staging your home makes life easier for you, the seller, in preparing the house for sale. The property usually sells faster and for more money with multiple offers! Even skeptical sellers say “I’m glad I hired a stager”. The cost ranges from $800 for nominal staging work up to about $5,000 for a fully furnished house including paint color and flooring consultation. My stagers usually can do a good job for about $1000.
