Professional Home Staging for New Jersey and the Tri-State area continued.

HomeGain’s 2009 Realtor Survey listed home staging as one of the most effective means of increasing your selling price, with a return on your investment well over 500%. It will always cost far less than your first price reduction. Studies also show a professionally staged home averages 6-10% returns and reduces the number of days your home is on the market by over 50%, even in today’s market.

The Real Estate Staging Association recently released statistics showing that staged homes sold 46% faster in 2007, and 89% faster in 2008. Vacant homes that were staged sold 68% faster in 2007 and 85% faster in 2008, verses vacant homes that were not staged. According to US Housing and Urban Development a staged home will sell for an average of 17% higher than those homes that were not staged. According to the National Association of Realtors, the average staging investment is between 1 and 3 percent of the homes asking price, which generates an 8 to 10% return.

As with any investment there are no guarantees, but the statistics speak for themselves. In the end, a home owner can rest assured that everything possible was done to get a quick sale at top dollar.
