After surveying over 330 independent estate agents and other property professionals across the UK, the Home Staging Association UK & Ireland has just released the 2019 report.
"Home Staging focuses on presenting a property to its best so that it is sold or rented more quickly and at a better price. It aims to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, helping the viewers to envision themselves living at that property and embracing such lifestyle." Home Staging Association UK & Ireland
Home staging is a rapidly growing industry in the UK and the results of this latest report show how much property professionals and estate agents value the impact of home staging.
Key findings from the 2019 Report
The responses from the property professionals and estate agents produced the following statistics;
- 100% agreed that home staging makes it easier for a buyer to visualise the property as their future home.
- 94% said that staging increases the number of viewings.
- 86% said home staged houses will sell up to 3 times faster than non-staged homes.
- 78% said home staging would increase the offer value of a property by up to 10%.
This report illustrates that home staging is the best way for homeowners to sell their home. We can add testament to this with our recent home staging projects;
Case Study 1:
Vacant home had been on the market for over 5 months with no offers. Within two weeks of furnishing and home staging being completed they had numerous viewings and had accepted an offer.
Case Study 2:
Large family home had been on the market for almost 3 years. Within 2 days of new pictures being taken following our home staging, they accepted an offer on the property.
Who doesn't want to appeal to more buyers, increase the number of viewings and achieve a quicker sale for the best possible price?!
