As home stagers who work with Calgary’s competitive housing market, we regularly get a variety of questions about our job… But it’s surprising how often we get asked these 3 specific questions:

  1. What exactly is it that we do?
  2. How do we do it?
  3. What can people do to make their own homes more presentable?

We’re asked these same questions over and over again at parties, coffee shop conversations, and even from our own families!

Home Staging Stats.

We like to say that effective home staging is both an art and a science, but when it comes to the returns you get from investing in professionally staging your home, it’s strongly on the science side.

A recent survey performed by HomeGain, for example, stated that hiring a professional home stager offered a whopping 196% return on investment. Yes, 196% ROI just from professionally staging your home. This is the kind of (comparatively) short-term investment return that stock brokers dream of… But what does it actually mean?

What it means is that for every $724 you spend on having a real estate listing professionally staged, you’ll see an average return of $2,145.
