Andrew Duncan, Tampa Bay's #1 Realtor and Expert, talks to Linda Saavedra of Showhomes about the stats of why home staging makes sellers more money and sell their homes fast,  The Duncan Duo Real Estate Show on 970 WFLA.

Staging makes the home memorable not only for the buyers but also for the home sellers but a lot of home sellers don't take advantage of it.

Andrew shares a recent experience he had during a visit to a seller's home while he was training a staff member. As they walked in, he knew that it wasn't ready to be put on the market. He asked if the sellers had contacted Show Homes as he had advised and they responded, "Oh no, we know how to do the staging thing. We've watched HG TV."

Linda adds, "it's like fixing your medical condition by watching The Doctors on TV. It's crazy!"

She shares some stats from the National Real Estate Staging Association.

They did a study on about 90 homes and the average time an unstaged home spent on the market was 166 days. Staged homes, however, were on the market an average of 32 days. 10% of those staged homes received multiple offers. They showed that staging increased the sale time 87% faster. She also mentions that in Tampa, the stats are better - average time on the market of staged homes is 26 days and 32% of those homes get multiple offers. The bottom line is that staging returns not only the faster sale time, all that savings, etc. Staged homes sell for 7-10% more than unstaged homes and the investment is 1-1.5%.

A lot of home sellers are impatient. They need to understand that preparing a home for sale doesn't happen in an instant. If you want to sell your home, listen to the expert who is giving you advice. It may take a couple of weeks to get everything ready but you are going to get a better chance of selling your home. You're not going to lose a season by a couple of weeks. It's all about striving for perfection. Rushing to get your home on the market isn't always a solution. If you want to get the best results possible on the sale, listen to your agent, stage your property, and give them time to prepare your home.
