Top Ten Reasons Home Staging Pays Off for Savvy Pittsburgh PA Real Estate Agents-Staging Benefit #3: Professional Home Staging Saves You Money

Now we're ready to talk about Professional Home Staging and your all-important bottom-line.

You know--"Show me the Money!"

Reason #3: Professional Home Staging SAVES You Money

Selling homes for a living can be a lucrative business (and hopefully is for you!). But as you know (and we all wish sellers better understood), there are a lot of expenses involved in listing and marketing homes.

And these days more than ever, we need ways to cut expenses while still providing clients with exceptional service. While some of your listing costs are one-time expenses many others (print ads, direct mail, flyers, open houses and of course, the value of the long hours required for you to do this on-going marketing) get higher and higher the longer you carry a listing.

So how do you minimize your marketing costs for your listings and still provide the highest level of service to your clients? You sell your listings more quickly. And what is a great way to accomplish that? Professional Home Staging!

According to statistics released by the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) for 2008, vacant homes spent 85% less time on the market and occupied homes spent 89% less time on the market after staging. And a National Association of Realtors survey found that staged homes sell 49% faster.

So Reason #3 is a "key" bottom-line benefit for you as a Realtor® to use home staging:

Stage your listings and they will sell faster. and bottom-line, you will have MORE MONEY left in your wallet.
