    Limelight Home Staging

    Home Staging Is A High Yielding Investment

    Home Staging yields a fantastic return when a house is priced within current market value!

    In addition to the many success stories we've received from our customers, these national studies found: Staged homes sell for more than non-staged homes (up to 17% more) according to U.S. Housing and Urban Development. Staged homes sell faster than non-staged homes (43% faster) according to the Association of Property Scene Designers.

    Unlike a home that sits on the market, a Staged home sells faster, saving the owner money by not needing to pay property expenses month after month: Thousands in Mortgages Hundreds in Property Taxes Utilities, Insurance and other Maintenance Costs Monthly HOA Fees

    With the combination of selling higher than non-staged homes, selling faster than non-staged homes, and greatly reducing the chance of a price reduction, Staging literally pays for itself many times over!

    Staging Helps to Sell for the Most the Market Allows

  • Most properties we stage that have been priced within current market value have received between 3% to 12% above listing price
  • "Staging speeds up sales in a sluggish market, and can bump up prices 2 percent to 10 percent in a moderate market." - Wall Street Journal
  • "When Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Los Altos, Calif., looked at nearly 2,800 properties in eight U.S. cities in 2004, they found that the staged homes, on average, sold in half the time that the non-staged homes did. The sellers with staged homes ended up with 6.3% more than their asking price, on average, while sellers with non-staged homes sold for 1.6% more than the asking price." - USA Today
