Don’t underestimate staging, it could be the key to unlocking your property’s full selling potential! Thousands of properties end up for sale each year from small studios, to multi million dollar penthouses, estates, and everything in between. With professional staging, properties sell at lightning speed! Don’t believe me? Here are three staggering facts:

  1. Staging brings in an ROI of 8-10%;
  2. A staged home sells 73% faster than a non-staged home;
  3. Over 80% of staged homes sell OVER their listing price!

(For further proof, check out the Real Estate Staging Association Publications and the National Association of Realtors and Professional Staging).

4 Egret Way, Mill Valley, CA. Sold for $4,525,000 - $530,000 over asking!

Imagine going to see a house for the first time, all excited to start a new chapter in your life. Maybe you even saw enticing photos of the home virtually staged. Then, you walk into a completely empty space.  It feels empty, almost soulless. An empty space is challenging to visualize yourself living in this particular home. Cue the staging, bring in the rugs, furnishings lights, artwork, accessories, and that dream home comes to life! Studio D goes the extra step to curate the staging for the property. You want a prospective buyer to be able to picture themselves in a space that sells the lifestyle while also being relatable, right off the bat. The right staging can do just that while shortening the time on the market and creating a little bidding war. 😉 Win, win!
