Home staging has become a MUST in today's housing market. Buyers are getting more particular, so homeowners will need to go further to sell their home. We like to say that the best looking homes will come out with a higher selling price point and a heck of a lot faster!
Here are the top 4 reasons why home staging is essential!
1. Less Time on the Market
When it comes to staging homes, studies and statistics show that an unstaged home spends more time on the market. Let me be more specific. According to the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA), an unstaged home spends an average of 184 days on the market, while stage home sell in an average of 23 days.
I don't know about you, but I know which statistic I prefer.
2. Appeal to a Wide Range of Potential Buyers
When it comes to selling a house, a VERY KEY rule needs to be kept in mind. A potential buyer is not interested in your personal items or your personal style. They are interested in seeing how a home can fit into their lives and become their home.
The goal of home staging in general is to prepare the property/home in an appealing way so that many prospects will be able to see the home as their own.
Staging can tell the story of various demographics, but shouldn’t look like it belongs to any particular person or style. That's why we like to keep to neutral colors, small pops of color, and highlighting key features of the home.

3. Highlights Key Features of the Home
The first impression a buyer makes of a home is the most important, so you need to impress them immediately. It is so vital to make the space open and highlight its key features, whether that be a spacious kitchen or a cute fireplace. It is all so essential. You want the buyer to see the functionality of the home.
4. Sell Closer to the Asking Price
In addition to having the home sell in a shorter period of time, staging a home can get you closer to the asking price. Time and time again, we have seen how home staging is crucial in achieving this outcome. People will pay more for a house that looks worth that asking price.
