Room Types and budget for staging


It is important that you only select the rooms in your house that you would like to have staged.  It is not generally necessary to stage every room in your house, especially if it is large.  If you are unsure of which rooms to stage, don’t worry… your professional home stager knows just exactly what to do. 


Vacant vs Furnished Homes


Staging for vacant properties will include the costs associated with renting furniture, including the furniture and its delivery, and the services of the stager to select and install the furnishings. If your home is furnished, a stager can often use what you have and make the home look great by editing and redesigning your own possessions. When data is input initially,  all of these variables are factored into the mix.


** Pricing of Home Staging can not have specific price since all properties has all different situation and condition. You can see below as a sample price of staging service.
