Excerpt from RESA's 2016 'The Consumer's Guide to Real Estate Staging':

  • Buyers often do not have the funds to purchase a home then pay more money to address repairs, painting, etc.  Buyers realize and appreciate the benefits of purchasing a professionally staged property.
     
  • Professionally-staged properties show better than competing ones for sale, including new construction homes and higher-priced properties.
     
  • Staged properties can increase the number of offers and selling price in hot markets.
  • Buyers view professionally-staged listings as 'well-maintained’.

  • Buyers’ agents recognize that professionally-staged listings are “move-in” ready and are more inclined to show staged properties.

  • Photos of professionally-staged listings look better on the MLS, as well as in print.

  • Professionally staged listings “STAND-OUT” in prospective buyers’ minds.
