Home staging faq's

WHY SHOULD I STAGE MY HOME?


First, you will make more money.

  • According to the National Association of Realtors Profile of Home Staging, nearly half of buyers’ agents believe staging a home increases the dollar value buyers are willing to offer by up to 10 percent.


Second, your house will sell faster, which means more money with less headache and stress!

  • A National Association of Realtors survey found that the longer a home stays on the market, the further below list price it drops.
  • A recent Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) Report found that, on average, sellers who invest in home staging before listing will sell 87% faster.

WHO PAYS FOR HOME STAGING?


Some popular options include:

  • The home seller pays all.
  • The real estate agent pays for a consultation.
  • The real estate agent reimburses the home seller at closing for an agreed amount (i.e.: for the initial “working” consultation).
  • The real estate agent pays all or part of the staging.

See the article, “Who Pays for Home Staging” for more details.



HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO STAGE MY HOME?


This varies based on the size of your home, what is needed to best market the property, the experience of the stager, and if the home is vacant or owner-occupied. An owner-occupied home can be staged in as little as 2 to 3 hours. The process for staging a vacant home generally takes 10 to 14 days from the date of the initial consultation. For best results, contact the stager as soon as possible.
