So if you’re putting your home on the market soon, is it worth the cost to hire a home stager? To answer that question, I’ll explain what a home stager does and what a real estate agent such as myself does when preparing a home to list.
A home stager will first come out to your home and charge you a consultation fee. After that, they’ll rent out furniture to you that they’ll use to fill your space.
If my goal is to net you the most money possible and I know that we need to fill a certain space in your home, I recommend letting me cover this cost. If you have an expansive room to fill, I’ll digitally stage it for you. This way, you aren’t limited to what a stager may or may not have in their warehouse—we can arrange suitable furniture exactly how we want it at no extra cost to you.
It’s also worth noting that, oftentimes, vacant houses sell quicker, so some rooms will look better if they’re not staged at all. With that in mind, when you have a listing consultation with our team, we’ll walk through your house room by room and make recommendations on which rooms will photograph better if they’re vacant. If any digital staging needs to be done, we have plenty of options to proceed.
