Home staging can be a worthwhile investment for homeowners looking to sell their property for a higher price. Staged homes typically sell for 20% higher than non-staged homes and sell faster than unstaged homes. The cost of home staging can vary, with many homeowners paying between $400 to $700 per room and full furniture rentals for extended periods can cost $6,000 or more. Professional home stagers can help your home sell faster and you can also DIY home staging with time, effort, and an eye for home decor. However, it is not clear that staging actually contributes to higher selling prices, as a 2012 study by several real estate experts found that staging made no difference in terms of the final selling price. Ultimately, the decision to stage a home depends on the individual homeowner's budget, timeline, and personal preferences.
