RESA Unveils 2020 Home Staging Statistics
You might be thinking that we discuss statistics pretty frequently when talking about home staging. Why? Because statistics are direct proof that home staging works. As many beautiful photos as there are of our home staging projects, there's only one way to show just how effective home staging can be, and that's found in the numbers.

Recently, the 2020 RESA (Real Estate Staging Association) Survey of Staged Homes was released about the success of home staging in the previous, challenging year. Here is an overview of the survey for both vacant and occupied homes (13k homes surveyed):
85% of staged homes sold for 5-23% over the listing price.
With an average investment of 1%, approximately 75% of sellers saw an ROI of 5-15% over asking price.
Staged homes are on the market for 23 days, on average.
By these statistics, that means that if you have a home on the market for $400,000, invest $4,000 in home staging, you could get $20,000 in return, in less than a month!
And, in case you missed our previous post about 2020 Staging Dallas staged homes statistics (vacant and occupied):
Home staged by Staging Dallas sold in an average of 10.5 days, with most of them selling in under a week.
Homes staged by Staging Dallas sold for an average of 100.45% of the asking price.
Across the board, whether it's country-wide or focused on the Dallas-area, there's no arguing that home staging helps you sell your home faster, and for more money. Why would you pass up home staging?
