The study results are in! The Real Estate Staging Association has released some interesting data collected from real estate markets across Canada and the US in 2010. SO, is it worth it to stage your Vancouver home? You be the judge! The study includes the following:
- 87 vacant homes (not staged) at an average of 277 days on the market, unsold. Those homeowners decided to take their properties off the market to stage them. Those same homes sold in 63 days on average. This is 78% less time than a non-staged home.
- 39 occupied homes (not staged) previously on the market at an average of 233 days, unsold. Those same staged homes sold in 53 days on average after staging. This is also 78% less time than a non-staged home.
