Full cleaning 2700 sq ft home - 9 hours. Best brokered or web-led housecleaning experience EVER. Michael is a smart (IQ and especially EQ) and articulate man who quickly became immersed (with a ton of energy) in our tasks with a high level of sensitivity to our particular home stage. He is a totally capable cleaner, sure - used a totally effective combo of his and our own chemicals, tools and methods - got the house lastingly clean (it's been 4 days since now, time to dispassionately inspect) in all the conventional ways, missed only a few nooks or crannies - and he sincerely wanted to know what we catch that he misses (we got the sense he'll remember for next time). BUT - what else? Most cleaners (especially on first time gigs) reveal a lot by how they handle the dusting / knick knack challenge - Michael got bookshelves and cabinets and chests and mantles and all that clean, "picking up" every little item to dust beneath, AND then surprised us by tweaking placement - staging - of MANY of the little precious things we've accumulated over the years and (not making this up) we had to agree 100% of the time that he'd put things back better than where he found them. He knew this was a scary thing to offer - told us some people ask him to refrain and he quickly restores things as they were ... but folks, this guy (he has apparently worked as a professional interior "stager") is genuinely talented - and this one housecleaning left us with improvements we really liked! So in addition to a VERY well cleaned home - we got insight and a freshening of how we live with some of our favorite little stuff. Hell of a deal - his rates are solidly in the middle of the market range for good cleaners. He has a great, informal way of handling scheduling and was totally candid upfront and easy about the business, personal space and performance aspects of a house-cleaning relationship. We'll have him back in a month for sure.

To create some additional space in the top floor of my garden cottage, I wanted to take advantage of the high ceilings and have a loft space installed. It was important to me that none of the floor space underneath was compromised, and wanted to avoid using supports from the floor. Jasper came over, took the time to understand my needs & vision, and offered a tremendous amount of support and advice as we pursued the design. He presented me with different options, and was sensitive to my pricing considerations. Ultimately, we decided it was best to pursue a minimally viable solution, and then expand on it as my needs changed. Within a week, Jasper showed up with his friend, a truck full of lumber, and got to business. He showed up at noon, and was done by 8pm. He was happy to make adjustments and modifications I requested weeks after completion (at no additional charge), left my home clean, and really took pride in his work. He was friendly, professional, and stood behind his work 100%. It was truly a pleasure to have Jasper come and turn my loft space vision into a reality that was far better than anything I could have imagined at a great price and on budget. I look forward to using him again for my future projects.

I hired White Couch from finding them on Thumbtack after viewing other staging websites. I liked what I viewed and contacted them. I told my seller's budget and time frame when I needed the home staged. They accommodated me. When I walked up to the see thru front door the next day after they finished, my draw dropped! I was totally blown away room by room. The even made the kitchen look so good complementing the new counters and stainless steel appliances you didn't noticed the old floor! I would use their services over and over again for my listings. Rich Gold Realty World Alliance 650-991-2121

We enjoyed working with Serena Zanello on our update project for our home. She is true professional. She began with a long conversation with us over colors, styles, preferences and patterns. As we worked with her design suggestions, we were able to come to consensus on furniture styles and wall colors; she was able to come up with colors that my husband and I could both accept. She was very patient as we worked our way through many choices, and she sent us many possibilities and combinations which would work together, give us the update we were looking for, and satisfy us both. She really opened my mind to new possibilities that took into account our preferences and needs. She chose two very professional subcontractors, to paint and to install the flooring. Their work was detailed, accurate and careful, and clean. We are very happy with the final process of floor, wall colors, tables, chairs, sofas and lighting that fulfill the functions we need and fit our sense of beauty and form. Her choices, suggestions and enthusiasm made the final result come together beautifully. We would certainly work with her again and recommend her highly.

Gewana is a true professional and provides excellent service beyond anything we could have imagined. We've used her for three unique projects (open house event, redesign space layout, upgrade furniture for two staff offices), and I'm sure it won't be the last. We are a technology center, so working with Gewana (or giving her space to work and do her magic), makes our lives easier; as we are able to focus on what we are good it. She thought about everything from the color arrangement, to paintings, to plants, and to the miscellaneous decor. As uncomfortable and unconfident we are in design and staging, she always asks for our opinion and communicates "why", before doing the "what"; which made us feel enabled. "How" it gets done, is also valued when working with Gewana. She was able to perform well within our budget because of her designing process, and approach towards excellent customer satisfaction. I highly recommend Gewana to be considered for any of your upcoming projects. Home staging may be her passion, but we have seen our place of business transfer before our eyes, and believe there's no project she can't handle. There isn't a day that goes by without our clients commenting on how the place looks and feels because of the work Gewana has done. When working with Gewana, our mission was for our members to be instilled with pride when entering our technology center; and Magnolia Home Stagers delivered (photos attached. sorry no before photos). Thank you Gewana, it was a pleasure working with you.

Although the first staging looked beautiful, and I received lots of great comments from people coming through on an open house, our first sale fell through and we had to put house back on the market. Marina was able to get home restaged the next day! Both times we received multiple offers above asking price and house was pending within a couple of days! Highly recommend!!

Renu is a caring, determined and passionate interior designer. She converted my ‘house' into ‘home’ in no time. Renu listened, payed attention to details, and recognized my design taste immediately. She did my whole home, that is, bedroom, kitchen, living room, balcony - basically everything. Additionally, working with Renu, I got educated in various things about interior designing, de-cluttering, organizing home, where to do shopping for good things for excellent price. She can also advise on other things like junk removal contacts, home cleaning contacts and anything that comes in the way of interior designing. I found her to be a very trustworthy person. After the consultation - I did not need to be home to get interior designing done, I left my spare keys with her without worrying. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Renu and I strongly recommend her consultation and services. I am definitely reaching out to Renu’s help again, whenever required. -Kshitij

Staged and Sold Homes successfully staged 2 homes in an estate. I was from out of town, and Daniela Roberts took care of everything. The furniture, decorations, and accessories accentuated the home's layout. It was just the right amount of staging for each unit. Staged & Sold Homes was reasonable as compared to many other staging companies. Both homes sold quickly in a matter of weeks and the estate made a considerable profit due to staging. I highly recommend her services Staged and Sold Homes. www.StagedAndSoldHomes.com

For years, we knew we needed to declutter and reorganize our house, but we kept telling ourselves that we should just do it ourselves - but It had been years and we still hadn’t done it. So, We hired Adroit Interiors to help us de-clutter our apartment and help us reorganize and rearrange our entire house - and it was 110% worth it! We have been bragging about their work to all our friends, and have fallen newly in love with our apartment. Having all of this get completed with experts’ help and direction was such a huge relief. We are so much happier in our space now and so glad we worked with them. Michela and Jasmine helped us remove over 300 lbs of junk and clutter. Because they took care of making sure things were sustainably donated, recycled, or otherwise responsibly disposed of it was a stress- and worry-free experience for us. They were amazing at helping us work through not just the physical process of gathering, sorting, and removing things, but they also were amazing at helping us see things clearly and feel good about the process even though it can be surprisingly emotional to eliminate clutter you’ve had for a decade. Michela and Jasmine helped reorganize and better use our space. My wife and I now have an amazingly well-organized closet! My wife wears many more of her clothes than she used to and puts together more outfit combinations than before because she can see all her clothes now. Keeping it clean has been so easy now that they’ve given us such a well-designed setup. When designing her new layout/organization system, they took into account our own personalities and habits to make sure the system we are set up with was one that has been easy to maintain. During the process, Adroit also helped rearrange several of our rooms. They created 3D renderings of various layouts and showed us what was possible with our existing furniture and helped us source new pieces, as well as putting to use items that had been languishing in storage. By the end of our time with Adroit we had so much faith in their abilities that we let them reorganize our entire kitchen without us being involved. No exaggeration, the way they put things away is so well thought-out and considered that when we can’t remember the new home for something, we can easily figure it out because things just make sense now. Cooking and keeping the kitchen clean has become much easier thanks to them. We can not recommend them highly enough - Adroit Interiors lifted a huge weight off our shoulders and we are so much happier in our space than we were before.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does it mean to stage a home?

Home staging is the real estate strategy of decorating your home to be as marketable as possible to your target demographic. Home staging is done by interior decorators and other design pros hired by the homeowner or realtor, prior to putting a house on the market. Think of it as setting the stage for potential buyers to fall more easily in love with their future homes — and to spend top dollar to get them. It’s likely to be worth the investment: The Real Estate Staging Association reports that staged homes spend 90 percent less time on the market than those that are not staged. Home stagers can also be hired even if you’re not going anywhere. Stagers can consult on new layouts for your current home, much like an interior decorator.

Home staging can take place while you still occupy the house you plan to sell, or when the home is vacant. For an occupied home, the home stager will clear out clutter, rearrange furniture, and bring in decor and furniture as needed to create the perfect environment. Usually an occupied home has far too much of the current owner’s personality stamped on it, which makes it hard for prospective buyers to envision themselves living there. A home stager should neutralize and beautify the space. In vacant homes, a home stager will bring in furniture and decor so that potential buyers don’t walk into an empty house, which can be equally hard to imagine living in as a cluttered, occupied home.

 

How much does it cost to stage a home for sale?

Nationally, the price for home staging ranges between $750 and $1,500. The price varies based on how many rooms in the house need staging, whether furniture and decor are needed or the stager can work with the client’s belongings, whether the home is occupied or vacant, and the sale price of the home. Occupied homes typically cost less to stage as they are already furnished, and can require less time and resources than staging an empty house. The main tasks when staging an occupied home are rearranging and decluttering. Staging an empty house can be more expensive as furniture and decor need to be trucked in, requiring transportation, physical labor and potential rental fees. Here are some examples of average home staging costs:

  • 2-hour consultation: $200, includes DIY tips and guidance.
  • 1- to 2-hour consultation and design session: $250, including written report.
    • Additional design consulting: $65 per hour.
  • 8 hours of staging an occupied home: $800.
    • Hands-on staging involving moving furniture, hanging and moving art, and decluttering.
  • Starting price for staging a vacant home could be $2,200.
  • A home stager may charge 1 percent of the home’s selling price.
