Home staging statistics can be a powerful weapon when selling your home staging services.

If a prospect hears that home staging can get them more for their home, increase their commissions, or sell their property faster, then you have a good chance of landing another home staging job.

Each year here at the Home Staging Institute we intend to survey over 1,000 United States-based participants to get an in-depth look at the results of home staging, and the outlook for the industry.

These participants are a representative cross-section of the real estate industry and include homeowners, realtors, and home stagers themselves.

Please feel free to use any of these home staging statistics on your own website, marketing material, or publications.

All we ask is that you credit the Home Staging Institute, and link to our website if you are publishing these stats online.
