Do you recommend staging for higher-end properties only?
Not at all! My job is to get the best price possible where-ever the home sits in the market!
I’ve sold staged listings as low as $295,000 and plenty in the mid to high-range also. One property this year was appraised at $340,00 by a number of agents. With staging I believed I could get my client closer to $350,000. He decided that for an investment of under $4000, the possibility of another $10-15,000 above the other appraisals was definitely worth it. With staging we achieved $355,000 in the second week on the market. That was a great return for my client and for me. With staging I get to move on to my next listing quickly!
The higher the price category, the higher the potential return on investment for my clients. In this day and age, staging any property just makes good sense!
