Many homeowners don’t want the added expense of paying for home staging when they are selling their home. However, home staging has been proven to increase a home’s value to prospective buyers. According to a recent survey by National Association of Realtors, approximately 1/3 of buyer’s agents said that staging a home increased the contract offer by as much as 5% compared to other similar homes on the market that were not staged. Spending as little as 1% of the value of your home on staging services can result in a return on your investment of up to 1000%. Those are way better odds than investing in anything in the stock market.
