Staged property beating the competition again.

A smart real estate agent knows that staging a listing is part of a good marketing plan.  Some agents make staging a mandatory part of the listing agreement.


Because they know that their home stager will help them get the property sold quicker for more money.

Where is the Proof?

Here in this blog. The numbers proof it again and again.

A listing agent  recently accepted two listings in the same neighborhood, as a matter-of-fact just around the corner from each other, days apart.

One of the properties was vacant without any upgrades and needed to be competitive.
The sellers agreed to stage their  home:

  • home size 2,475 square feet,
  • 4 bed/3 bath home
  • lot size 9,147 square feet lot
  • no upgrades
  • List price per square foot was $271.72
  • Home sold in 26 days  
  • Sale price per square foot $262.63

Similar homes in escrow:

  • on the market an average of 149 days,
  • average size was 2,411 square fee
  • average price per square foot is $235.54

Calculate your savings with staging: 2,475 square feet multiplied by $235.54 equals $582,961.50.  This home sold for $650,000 that is a profit of $67,038.50 minus the staging investment.

Wait there is more …..

They sold in less than a month which also means they have fewer mortgage, insurance, taxes and utility payments.

Fine Staging Example

In the heart of Gilroy, California a new homeowner decided to completely gut the property he just acquired and start over.  And thus his “little” project started as any project with a plan and a dream, however, the plan changed along the way and the footprint of the home increased. After some hurdles and challenging the project neared completion and a real estate professional was hired.

Brenda, the listing agent, knew the investment the home owner made in renovating the property and that in order to compete with existing properties for sale on the very same street she needed to be different in order to receive the highest possible sale price in the shortest amount of time. And so she contacted La Dolce Vita Home Staging.

La Dolce Vita Home Staging offers a wide range of services and prides itself of working within the budget of the client. After talking with Brenda it was decided to stage the living and dining rooms, kitchen, both bathrooms and the master suite. The other three bedrooms were left alone so that budget goals could be met.

The property was placed on the multiple listing system (MLS) on March 8, 2012 with a list price of $369,000.  On 4/3/12 the list price of the home was reduced to $350,000 still well above the list price of similar homes in the area. Price per square foot for similar homes for sale, pending sale or sold in the past 4 months on the same street was $218.51. The price per square foot for this home currently under contract is $243.39.  This home was staged by La Dolce Vita Home Staging and on the market for 34 days when the sellers accepted an offer. A similar home next door has been on the market for 165 days at a list price of $275,000 or $228 per square foot.
