Sofie Allsopp, host of HGTV’s fantastic show “The Unsellables”, gave an incredible stat in a recent episode. Here it is:
“Every box of clutter removed from your home during staging is equal to $800 – $1000.”
Read that again.
Consider that the reverse is also true…every box of clutter you don’t remove before staging / selling your home will cost you.
Remember that “clutter” means personal items, collections, extra furniture…etc.
Here’s another gem from the show:
“Having your home professionally staged can increase your selling price by up to 30%.”
(oh…and if you really want to learn more about staging, this is a great show. One of my absolute favorites. In a short ½ hour episode you get a real picture of how & why staging works. And always some good how-to’s for simple DIY projects.)
