Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find someone to stage my home?

You can find a home staging professional near you by searching for pros online. Start by reading their customer reviews to find out if they have a good track record. Also, read their online profiles to find out what they include as part of their services. For example, do they offer advice or services for: 

  • Decluttering?
  • Rearranging furniture?
  • Painting?
  • Updating finishes?
  • Flooring improvements?

On their profiles, you should also find photos of previous home staging projects they worked on. Look at those images so you can judge whether the pros provide high-quality work. 

If you’re convinced there are a few home stagers who are reputable, qualified and good at what they do, contact them and ask for free estimates. 

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.
Reviews for Atlanta home staging professionals
Thumbtack Customer
Susan did an outstanding job staging my northeast Atlanta home at an incredibly affordable price. Her service was expedient, with the entire process of staging my kitchen, dining area, living area, master bedroom and bath, a second bath, and front and back porches being completed within the course of about 3-4 days. Her taste and eye for detail are just impeccable, and she was such a delight to work with. I believe staging my home is the key to getting it sold quickly!

The home staging was fabulous, reasonably priced and they were able to work with my tight schedule. My home was under contract within a week and I know it’s because of Stephanie’s amazing staging! I have had multiple real estate agents ask me for her contact info so they can use her company in the future. You cannot go wrong with hiring this company!!!

This could not have been a better experience for us. Simply Put went far above and beyond to stage our home (we were in kind of an emergency situation) and they got it just right. The whole process was super fast, easy and pleasurable. Highly recommend!

It's been truly a pleasure hiring Stephanie for my home staging. She has been professional and responsive right off the bat. I've had my vacant property listed for 4 months now, with one offer that fell through. The recent feedback during the fall/winter season is that it's cold, dark and barren. Stephanie quoted me a high value offer and scheduled the staging very quickly. She did a fabulous job making my place look more warm and inviting! It makes me feel like I should live in my home again. I will follow up once it sells. Thank you, Stephanie!

As a real estate agent I knew it was my responsibility to find the best stager for my seller. Tamra went well over both of our expectations!! The house was staged perfectly for the style of home we have and all the designs and pieces went well together. I will definitely be using her again in the near future! Great work!

I had listed my house for sale about a month before I hired Stephanie at Simply Put Home Design to stage it. I hadn’t had a single showing, even after I had spent thousands renovating the house. Stephanie reassured me that the staging would help, and it was clear from the beginning that she knew what she was doing. She has a lot of experience, was very responsive, and staged my house within 2 days so it would be ready for the next open house. I was very pleased with the result. She did a beautiful job and the house got a showing within 2 days after the new pictures were posted on MLS! And to top it off, she offered the best price out of several stagers/designers I interviewed. My house hasn’t sold yet but I definitely think her work will definitely make it sell more quickly. I highly recommend her and would hire her again without a second thought.
