Home Staging Tips

Home Staging Tips

According to the National Association of Realtors, for every $100 invested in staging, the potential return is $400 . … “A staged home will sell for 17% more on average than a non-staged home, and 95% of staged homes sell in 11 days or less. That is statistically 87% faster than non-staged homes.”

How much does home staging cost? The cost of home staging will vary by property depending on the services that the homeowner chooses.

Consultations and home staging are generally quoted on a square footage basis. However, depending on the condition of the home and the work required the quote may vary. Most stagers charge $300 to $600 for an initial design consultation, and $500 to $600 per month per room.

Home staging doesn’t have to be a costly, time-consuming process—especially if your house is already in good shape.  “You want buyers to be able to easily envision themselves in your home.

Here is 10 tips can help to sale your house faster.

  1. Hang easy-to-read house numbers
  2. Deep cleaning: Take some time to clean every room in your house, but beware of cleaning smells. No prospective buyer wants to walk into a house with a dirty bathroom or scuffed-up walls.
  3. Power wash siding and walkways: Giving your home’s exterior and paved areas a power wash can be nearly as dramatic as repainting, for a much lower cost. Rent a machine from your local hardware store if you don’t have one.
  4. Mirror: a mirror making your home brighter and seem less cramped.
  5. Display art, not personal photos: Photos on a side table are fine, but remove all personal photos and use arts.
  6. Show off the hardwood: nice floors are another highlight that you want everyone to see. Do not covered by too many pieces of furniture or a large rug.
  7. Update Old Lighting Fixtures


  1. Minor kitchen renovations brings a good return. Smaller updates such as painting or refinishing cabinets that are still in good shape, or upgrading to Energy Star appliances, can refresh your kitchen’s look at a fraction of the cost.
  2. Mow lawn, and reseed or add fresh sod as needed: Sad, neglected lawns are a major turnoff to potential buyers. Maintaining a healthy lawn from the beginning with regular care is the least expensive route, though laying new sod can be worth the dramatic improvement in curb appeal if you don’t have time to start from seed.
  3. Repaint or stain the porch floor as needed A fresh, crisp paint job in modern neutralslike gray and putty shows off your home to best advantage.
