Homes Staged Before Listing Sell 90% Faster!

Staged homes, staged before listing, sell 90% faster, according to the most recent statistics released by the Real Estate Staging Association.

The Real Estate Staging Association, recently release their Home Staging Statistics Report, based on home staging statistics self-reported by professional home stagers nationally. Homes staged before listing sell 90% faster than homes listed on the MLS unstaged. Unstaged homes spent an average of 184 Days On Market (DOM). That’s more than 6 months! Yikes! Once those same homes were staged, they sold, on average, in 41 days. However, homes that were staged prior to listing sold, on average in 23 days!

Home staging works. Homes staged before listing will sell faster. If you had any doubts before, this should lay them to rest.Homes staged before listing sell 90% faster

These statistics prove that staging a home before listing is far superior than listing a home before staging. Don’t make the mistake of adapting a wait-and-see attitude. You will get the best results when selling your home if you have it professionally staged before listing.

Model Home Staging For National Home Builder

Mid-century Modern Model Home Dining roomMoving Mountains Design completes Model Home Staging for a National Home Builder

Recently, we did a model home staging job for a national home builder. The project was located in Palm Springs. The builder had hired a model home design company to complete their models. One of the models wasn’t selling well, so the design director hired us to stage an additional model. The builder wanted a fresh look and they wanted to see if home staging would help sell this particular model vs. traditional model home design. We staged this model home in a Mid-Century Modern style, hoping to appeal to a younger, more hip demographic. According to the sales staff, our model home is being very well received!

Moving Mountains was hired to stage the open-concept living room, dining area kitchen as well as the master bedroom and bath.

Investor Home Staging – California Craftsman in Pasadena

I’m often asked how our Investor home staging differs from our “regular” home staging. The answer: it doesn’t. We still use the same high quality furniture, rugs, artwork and home staging accessories that we use for “regular” home staging. We are just as dedicated to helping our Investor home staging clients sell their homes as quickly as possible and for the most amount of money, as we are for our homeowner and real estate agent clients.

Here are some photos of a recent Investor home staging project – California Craftsman in Pasadena, CA.

This home has 3 bedrooms and 1.75 bathrooms in 1,836 sq. ft. It is located in North Pasadena on a quiet street lined with other charming Craftsman homes. The investor managed update without losing the original Craftsman charm. The gleaming hardwood floors flow from room to room making the space feel larger, lighter and brighter.

We often work on home staging projects for Investors. Many of our Investor clients use Moving Mountains Design for multiple staging projects per year. Some we work with on multiple projects per month. For more information about our Investor home staging services, please contact Michelle at (626)385-8852.
