"Heather and Stage to Sell were our LIFESAVERS!!! This is going to be a long review, and if you don't have time to read it, then just trust me when I say...HIRE THEM! From start to finish, Heather was so professional and offered us an amazing rate. Not only did she inspect the property to really evaluate which pieces would work best in our space, but they even painted some old yucky cabinets for us to help improve the way the property showed. She truly cared about us selling our home. We were in a situation where we thought we would be losing about 10k on our property. Properties without updates like ours were going for about $145k to $150k. We really needed to get $160k to break even on our sell. We live out of state in CA and our property had been handled by a property management company. The property managers were going to clean and get the property ready for Heather and her team. Let's just say, the property mgt company did not hold up to their end of the bargain. When Stage to Sell went to our property, they were so gracious enough to send us pics of our home (after cleaning) so that we knew the current state of it. EW! It was disgusting. We advised our property mgt company and they refunded us our money. Heather worked with a cleaning company who came out for the same price and deep cleaned our place. I mean it was SPARKLING! Our realtor and the others from Mark Z commented on how clean and great smelling it was. They were all so impressed with Stage to Sell staging and cleaning. Stage to Sell works with a cleaning vendor as well as renovation contractors to give their customers options if needed. We did not do a single renovation to this outdated property. We had them clean it and Heather stage it. Within 24 hrs of the property listing we were the #1 listing in the West Bloomfield area. Within 48 hrs we had multiple offers. Our list price was $153k ($7k loss for us) and our selling price $160k (no loss for us!!!). This was a dream outcome and we could not have done this without Heather. No way! As an out of state seller, we would trust Stage to Sell over and over again. Hope this review gives you the peace of mind, that staging with Stage to Sell is so worth it."

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.
