Should You Stage Your House to Sell It?

 

When you decide to list your house for sale, you may wonder whether or not to stage it. How much does staging cost? How do you do it right? Will it increase buyer interest? Let's take a closer look at the process.

 

What is home staging?

Home staging is the art of decorating your house to appeal to potential homebuyers. It allows potential buyers to envision themselves living in your home, which could increase the number of offers and size of the offers you get. Staging has many benefits that can lead to a successful sale without having to pay the many costs of a full redesign. Your best bet is to hire a professional stager who knows the elements of design and what appeals to buyers in your area.

 

Will staging help your home sell?

According to the International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP), an investment in home staging is always less than a price reduction or lower starting price. It's a proven, up-front investment to help get the highest rate of return on the sale of a property. In fact, it can net 5-20% more in the sale, according to statistics tracked by IAHSP and National Association of Realtors.

 

How much does it cost to stage a house?

Home staging costs around $1,500 on average but can range anywhere from $600 to $4,000. The pricing depends on the location, size, and list price of the property, as well as the number of rooms being staged, the type of furniture and decor, the duration of the initial staging agreement, and whether or not the property is vacant. The 2022 Home Staging industry statistics showed that $3,250 is the average investment for staging a vacant property.

 

Here's a breakdown of the costs you're likely to see:

 

  • Initial consultation: From $150 to $600 and typically takes about two hours

 

  • Room-by-room staging: The individual cost of staging a room is about $500 to $600

 

  • Price per hour: Ranges from $25 to $150

 

  • Price per project: Most stagers provide an estimate for the project after your design consultation, ranging from $800 to $1,000

 

  • Furniture rental: For vacant homes or as needed, rentals can cost anywhere from $500 to $600 per room, adding up to $2,000 a month

 

  • Maintenance projects: Costs for things like light fixtures, refinishing, hiring a cleaning service, or painting will range depending on your needs
