Will Staging Cost You? It May Cost You More If You Don’t!
If you are planning on placing your home on the market someone may have suggested staging to you.
However, who wants to put money into a house they’re not going to be living in?! Maybe you want to put the For Sale sign up and see what happens.
You’ve already agreed to pay a commission to your agent and moving is not inexpensive.
Yes, staging will cost you. Here’s an average of what you can expect:
Home Staging Consultation- $150-300 on average for up to 2 hours
This service is perfect for an occupied home. The Stager covers everything from curb appeal, your exterior, paint color choices and how to “show off” your property. If time permits, you might find some of your furniture and accessories being repositioned for better effect.
Vacant Home Staging- $2000-5,000+ on average (for 3 months of staging)
If your property is vacant and you want to highlight key areas, your stager can bring
in furniture and accessories for key areas.
The more that goes in, the higher the cost; the more upscale/unique the pieces, the higher the cost.
However…… keep in mind ..... NOT staging could cost you even more.
1.Ongoing monthly expenses of your current house:
2.Missing out on your future dream home because your house is still on the market.
3.Getting top dollar for your home because of its condition.
4.Suffering through the “joys” of having your house on the market and timeless hours of leaving while your house is being shown.
Save yourself and your family the time and money, invest in making sure the condition and presentation of your property is the best it can be.
