Vacant Home Staging
Vacant homes have a much harder time selling than occupied homes, statistics suggest that as many as 78% of expired listings may be vacant. By providing services that include furniture, art, and accessories, vacant homes have much higher appeal after professional home staging. The Real Estate Staging Association shows that these services can save up to 72% on market and the National Association of Realtors says it may provide up to 15% higher offers.
In the end, the primary benefit for vacant home staging is typically saved days on market. With every month that a home sits empty, the home sellers has to pay carrying costs, that include mortgage prinicple, interest, insurance, electricity, cleaning, HOA fees, CDD fees, and more. The cost of staging is usually completely made up by simply saving weeks on the market.
The value against home price reductions can also not be dismissed. According to Zilliow and Trulia, the average home takes reductions of as much as 1% per month, and 9% over the life of a listing. Since staging prices are typically around 0.5% – 1.5%, this makes the return on investment a significant value.
