Ninety percent of buyers look at homes online first, so that means your first showing happens online! Then, once a buyer walks into a home, it only takes about 10 seconds for them to form an opinion of your house. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) says that the average staging investment is between 1 and 3% of the home's asking price, which generates a return of 8 to 10%.
The DHT strongly recommends staging for our clients! The statistics speak for themselves, but if that isn't enough to convince you, check out the before and after photos below of one of our listings that was staged by our very own Victoria Stratman of Viola by Victoria.
