How Much Does Home Staging Cost in New Hampshire?
Even with all the media coverage, Home Staging still remains a mystery for most New Hampshire sellers, with many believing Home Staging is a service they can't afford.
Home Staging is often perceived as expensive, involving all new furniture and major construction...costing thousands of dollars. Adding to the confusion, many home stagers do not list their fees on their website. If people have to inquire further to find out how much something costs, they will usually assume it's expensive.
Home Staging fees in New Hampshire vary. Some stagers charge hourly, some by square footage, some have half day and full day rates. Home Staging may involve rental of all new furniture or it may involve using what the homeowner has on hand. You can hire a stager to do all the work or to do a "walk through" and give you a detailed "to-do" list to complete yourself.
It's not always expensive. There are levels of service to fit all budgets.

The question isn't whether you can afford to Stage...
it's whether you can afford NOT to Stage.
