Statistics Prove Home Staging WORKS in Portland
YTD through September 30, 2013, Room Solutions' staging expertise has helped sell over $25 Million of residential property in the Portland metro area. Our staged properties had average Days on Market time of just 18.5 days compared to the Portland metro average Days on Market time of 84 days. During this time, the homes that we've staged and provided home staging consultations for have achieved an average 99.4% of list price.
Don't let your property linger on the market when a small investment in staging can help it sell faster and for maximum value.
Why take the risk of paying carrying costs each month for a mortgage, property taxes, HOA dues, and utilities -- not to mention the inevitable price reductions when your home doesn't sell? A staged home can encourage more viewings, faster offers and a pending sale. Using our professional home staging services can save you time and money, whether you need a cost-effective Staging Consultation or Staging of an Occupied or a Vacant home.
Staging Your Home Is A Smart Investment
The investment in staging is always less than a price reduction. Regardless of market fluctuations, staging will give your home an edge over competing properties. It's the all-important "packaging" that helps a home sell faster and for maximum profit.
In addition, your investment in staging may also be tax deductible; refer to IRS Publication 523 and your professional tax advisor for more information on deducting this marketing expense.

Home Staging Services Offered To Homeowners, Builders, Banks and Investors
- Walk through Verbal Consultation (Occupied Home or Vacant Property): This very popular service is geared towards the homeowner or Realtor for either an Occupied or Vacant home. We walk through the property with you while you take notes of our recommendations for easy cosmetic repairs that will give you the best ROI, light fixture replacements, interior & exterior paint colors, how to create focal points, the best furniture placement to create a good traffic flow in your home, deep cleaning tips, editing your collections & photos, curb appeal & landscaping enhancements, etc. Afterwards, we'll provide you with a "Top 10 List" of things that we recommend be completed in your home before it goes on the market. We also provide you with written tips on preparing for the Open House & keeping your home ready for showings. Up to 2 hours of time – $195; $15 for each additional 15 minutes. If distance is greater than 20 miles from SW Portland, an additional charge may apply.
- Home Staging Service for Occupied Homes: If the home is Occupied while on the market, we will work with and edit the seller's furniture and provide any additional accessories (if needed) to create an inviting, cohesive look to the décor. Our service includes quality digital photos that can be used in the online listing or in marketing materials. The pricing of this service depends on the size of the property, the number of rooms staged and whether accessories are included for rent. Because every project is unique, we're happy to provide a no-obligation staging proposal for your property.
- Home Staging Service for Vacant Homes: Using our extensive staging inventory, we can stage a Vacant property to ensure that it's appealing to your target buyer. We usually recommend staging the main "impact" rooms of the home, but can also provide "light" staging if required by the budget and situation. The pricing of this service depends on the size of the property and the number of rooms staged. Because every project is unique, we're happy to provide a no-obligation staging proposal for your property.
- Electronic Consultation (E-Staging): If your property is located outside our service area (anywhere in the world) we can provide a detailed Consultation Report for your home. Using photos and room dimensions that you provide to us by email, we will advise which pieces of furniture to keep, which to remove, how to showcase the space for maximum appeal, as well as cosmetic improvements to consider. The reasonable cost of this service depends on how many rooms are included. Please contact us for more information -- we'd love to help you whether you're planning to sell your home, or just want to fall in love with it again!
- Full Day or Half Day Home Makeover (ReStyling) Projects: If you'd like a fresh look in your home or just don't know how to best configure your furniture, our home makeover service may be just what you need. This "ReStyling" service is less expensive than hiring a traditional interior decorator and very effective! We can make your home warm and inviting, and can also suggest where to buy the best accessories (or we can do the shopping for you). A no-obligation quotation is gladly provided.
- Staging Offices, Reception Areas, Waiting Rooms & Small Businesses: All properties – including commercial offices – can benefit from staging. We'll assess your place of business from the perspective of a customer, then advise you on what simple cosmetic and furnishings changes should be made to create a more inviting and professional look. Easy changes can make your clients feel welcome and relaxed! A Verbal Consultation is just $195 for up to 2 hours of time.
- Paint Color Consultation: Need help selecting just the right interior or exterior paint colors? Whether you're selling your property or staying in it, we can help you find just the right colors that work with the existing elements – billed @ $125 for one hour, or $195 for two hours of time.
- Furnishings Rental: Our extensive inventory of furnishings is available for rental in properties that we stage. This includes a wide variety of quality furniture, area rugs, lamps, artwork and wall décor, linens, plants and trees, plus home décor accessories to suit many styles and tastes. Monthly billing is determined by how many items are needed.
- Shopping Service: If you're too busy to shop for home décor or aren't sure what's needed to improve the look of your home, we can do the shopping for you. Using our intimate knowledge of the local furnishings market, we can find the items you need (often at bargain prices), deliver them to your home and properly arrange them to fit the space; shopping service is billed @ $75/hr.
