Is Staging Needed in a Low Inventory Market?



We're sure you've noticed that the DC market is suffering from a lack of inventory since the market began to cool down after August 2021. According to Redfin, there are about 1400 homes listed in DC today. With this decline in inventory, you're most likely wondering, "Is it still worth it to stage my listings?". As the Realtor's Best Friend, we're here to guide you in the right direction. Ask yourself three questions...


Do I Want to Attract Buyers to this Listing When They Find It Online?

Home Staging is a key factor that attracts buyers to a listing before they step in the door! 90% of buyers look to the internet to view homes before contacting an agent.


Do I Want to Increase the Perceived Value of This Listing?

Home Staging can deliver a price that is 6% to 20% more than a non-staged home. This happens because staging increases the perceived value of a home.


Do I Want Buyers to Experience the Potential of This Listing When Showing?

When showing a home, the goal is for buyers to imagine themselves comfortably living in the space, which drives them to make an offer. Staging a home not only shows the potential of the space in the home, but it helps buyers imagine their life in the space.


Did you answer "YES" to all three of these questions? Then you believe that home staging is still worth it in this low inventory market. What are you waiting for? Get a Quick Quote today!
