Lower the Asking Price or Stage?
Multiple showings followed by no offers may be the result of the home not showing as well as possible and not the asking price itself. “A typical price reduction of 3% on a $300,000 home is $9,000. The cost of staging a home that has furniture, but needs rearranging and restyling can cost from $500- $2500. In addition, a staged home typically sells for 7% more than comparable un-staged homes and sell twice as fast.”*
