A Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corp. survey found that STAGED homes spent half the time of

Un-staged homes on the market and sold for more than 6% above the asking price!

85% percent of staged homes fetched offers between 5 percent and 23 percent over list price, according to 2020 data from the Real Estate Staging Association, and by investing 1 percent of the home’s value in staging, 75 percent of sellers saw a return between 5 percent and 15 percent.  – RESA (Real Estate Staging Association)

Buyers will stay in a vacant home an average of 5 minutes but will linger in a furnished home up to an average of 40 minutes. Studies show that the longer a buyer remains in the home, the more likely they are to make an offer.
