Certified Staging Professionals Release:

Home Staging Trends ReportHome Staging Report
As
the professional home staging industry gains respect as an essential
and integrated component of the international real estate industry at
large, the demand for valid industry performance statistics has also
increased.  However, the reality is that home staging statistics for
“days on market” and “contract versus listing” prices vary
significantly due to differences in regional real estate markets.  In
2009, the Canadian real estate market fared much better than the U.S.
market, which suffered an extraordinary decline because of the banking
crisis and recession. Furthermore, regional differences can also be
significant.  However, the common fact remains that irrespective of
location and/or market conditions, professionally staged properties
sell faster and for more money than comparable properties, which are
not staged.

CSP International™ believes it is important to
acknowledge these differences, while still providing an overview of
value to the 2009 Home Staging Industry in North America.  In this
report we feature several specific key areas of Canada and the U.S., as
well as highlight the market differences and local trends in home
staging.   We have consulted with home staging experts and real estate
professionals to share their valuable perspective on 2009 and their
outlook for 2010.

Sneak Peak….Industry Outlook for 2010

Charleston, South Carolina

New York Home Staging Trends“The Charleston,
South Carolina market, while not
hard hit by economic downturns, seems to be rebounding in 2010, at least in the
average or below average price ranges.  Higher home values are still
languishing on the market, particularly in the secondary/seasonal home
communities.”


New York City, NY While we are seeing a trend of buyers returning
to the market, these buyers are demanding and getting best value.  Realistic pricing is still paramount but
never before have presentation and condition been so important.

Toronto, ON …This method of marketing has created multiple
offers on properties and has resulted in selling prices as much as 115% over
asking.   An example of this is thirteen offers on one property I staged
at the end of January 2010, which was listed at $645,000 and sold for $755,000.
