Home Staging - Real Estate Staging


  • You only have one chance to make a great first impression.
  • Statistics show that 90% of people cannot visualize how space can be used and it takes only 10 seconds for a buyer to decide if the property is worth consideration. 

  • A buyer stays in a vacant house an average of 5 minutes but lingers in a furnished home an average of 40 minutes.

  • In most cases, staging costs less than the property’s first price reduction ($10,000 average reduction).

  • Based on today’s market, a non-staged home stays on the market an average of 175 days while a staged home averages 35 days.

  • Well staged homes sell for over 7% more than homes that are not staged.  The longer a property is on the market, the lower the selling price will be.

  • 90% of single family homes, staged by Daniel H. Houde Design are on the market an average of 17 days; condos an average of 30 days.
