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.

Diane Papke completed the staging of my home this weekend and she has done an outstanding job - my home has never looked better! In every room of my home, Diane has been successful in creating an environment that is both inviting and asthetically pleasing. The rooms look much larger as well. Diane is wonderful to work with, is a good listener, and has great customer service. I highly recommend Diane - you will not be disappointed! Lou Ann Setter

Carrie did an outstanding job staging our house for sale just recently. Our house initially had a lot of traffic thru it, but seemed to be lacking a professional touch from Carrie since it had no furniture in it & was not appealing to anyone. After Carrie took charge, the second showing resulted in a Sale of Our Home!!! I really credit Carrie for this & would recommend her to anyone who is selling their home. She definitely gets 5 STARS from us!!!

If you're thinking about hiring Lindsey don't think twice! I needed a stager and FAST! I had no idea where to go or who to speak with. I did a google search and found Lindsey happily here on Thumbtack! Lindsey didn't miss a single step! She responded to my inquiry within a fast and appropriate time, she made availability in her schedule to meet me promptly, and executed staging in my property all within a week's time! Not only was she diligent in her method, she was also a delight to work with! She was professional yet fun, and a good communicator, and friendly. Lindsey at Grace Home Staging doesn't disappoint!
