All the data we have shows that homes that are staged correctly can get a bump in sale price. This can range from 1-10%, which may not seem like a lot at first, but when you consider the amount homes can sell for… that can be up to an extra $100,000 in some extreme cases.

Staging is a craft, and it takes a lot of expertise. The designer needs to know what needs to be done. Some properties may need a full makeover and styling, others are perfect as is and some will need only minor changes. This is where true expertise and know-how comes into play.
