As a Realtor, I am always looking for quality staging to help my clients' homes sell at a higher price. Asking my clients to pay thousands of dollars to accomplish this is a hard sell; asking my clients to pay what david & co. charge is another story. I have used them for two homes now and have already recommended them to several other agents who've been impressed with our listing photos.

Michelle did an awesome job staging and painting my sellers condo. She went far above and beyond what the job called for. Michelle added extra touches like upgrading the cabinet knobs, towel hangers etc. She also took the time to do some touch up cleaning so that the place popped. She basically worked overnight painting so that I could have my open house on time. Due to her efforts and expertise the condo sold in less than two weeks! Definitely use her again and again.

James has been the interior designer for two of my homes and over the past 25 years has provided design services for many of my closest friends and dozens of my clients. (I have been an in-city residential real estate broker since 1982.) Aside from being accommodating, easy to work with and an accomplished designer, James possesses a natural eye for fine art & lighting placement as well as selecting paint colors. I can comfortably recommend that you consider interviewing Mr. Wiley for your job and if you feel a good connection, you will be very pleased with his service.

My wife and I were excited to start a new life together in a new house, but quickly got overwhelmed with the size and layout. Recommended by our real estate agent, Francine swooped in, transforming our 2,000 sq.ft home into a beautiful and livable sanctuary. Francine was easy to work with, creative (unexpected ideas that worked really well), reliable, and very organized right down to every detail. We've been in our home for 4 months now, and loving it.

We commissioned Cicely to stage a vacant listing of ours. Cicely has been a pleasure to work with and she has taken all the stress off of us having to do anything except say yes. I really appreciated her explanations and design ideas ahead of time, as well as her concern to making just the right design choices for each specific space. I feel like she is just as concerned about selling our listing as we are! She has also been very flexible working with the unpredictability of real estate. I highly recommend her as a person and her artistic vision as a staging designer.

Lisa is super friendly and easy to deal with. She was always on time and helpful. Her work is impeccable. My house went from listing to closing in 21 days, for over list price. I'm real sure that her staging expertise was a large part of the reason for such a successful sale!

I have worked with Jenny for over 15 years as her Real Estate agent. She has helped many of my clients and myself with fabulous remodels, her talent has transformed so many homes. Whether it be a kitchen remodel, bathroom or backyard cottage, she always thinks outside the box. My biggest compliment is her attention to detail and really listening to what the client is trying to accomplish. It is NEVER about what she wants to design, it's always about what the client desires. You will not be disappointed with her talent and very sweet demeanor. She is a MUST hire...

Rachel came to our house to help us pick out some colors for painting. Our house isn't very fancy but that didn't seem to matter to her. We got colors picked and she had some great ideas for some other things too. Like considering moving one kitchen cabinet 90 degrees which the design allows with little effort and will give us way better counter space. Once we get the painting done, we will have her help us decide on some window coverings and flooring that works well with shedding dogs! Rachel is very easy to work with, and sensible! She is happy to help with even little things and go a little bit at a time as our budget allows. I would give her an A+ for good ideas and easy to work with. Thanks Rachel!

It was a pleasure working with Gloria Chien, the principal of VIS Designs. Gloria is extremely professional in her design and presentation. I feel that she puts her whole heart into the project, and the result definitely shows! Throughout the process, she gave helpful input, monitor every details to prevent any future problems. Not only she understood the vision of the project, but she also delivered quality and practical solutions above and beyond what was asked. Her detail orientated approach is one of the key elements to the success of the project. We would love to work with Gloria and VIS Designs again, and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in the future! TC Wu, WPI Real Estate Property Management and Sales

There are many great designers out there, but I would say I stand out because I create such a variety of styles. I can appreciate many ethnicities, go modern, classic, urban or even beachy. I sometimes combine styles so even my ultra modern has unexpected elements that flow with the look and color palate.

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.

 

What do interior designers do?

Interior designers do much more than pick complementary paint colors and choose matching furniture — although those tasks are important parts of the job. Unlike decorators, interior designers usually have an associate of science degree or certificate of achievement in interior design from an accredited program. They’re trained in drafting, lighting and computer aided design (CAD), and are experts in room-specific design and residential space planning. Interior designers use these skills to plan and design safe, highly functional and beautiful interior spaces, from kitchens and bathrooms to family rooms and bedrooms. They determine space requirements, work within building codes and inspection regulations, and meet accessibility standards. An interior designer’s day-to-day job includes creative and technical tasks, both of which often require great communication skills:

  • Creating model rooms and visuals using design software.
  • Researching different textiles, materials, finishes, lighting and furniture.
  • Hiring suppliers, vendors, and contractors.
  • Estimating costs and making bids on potential jobs.

How do you find a good interior designer?

For many homeowners, the difference between a good interior designer and a bad one is simply a matter of taste — but all good designers have similar skill sets. Interior designers usually have a degree or certificate in interior design, with training in design principles and lighting, drafting, and computer aided design (CAD) software. Good interior designers have strong color balancing skills and understand how different colors influence spatial perception and moods. They know the building and electrical codes in the areas where they practice, and they make sure that any contractors they hire also work to those codes. They are knowledgeable about different upholstery fabrics and draperies, stay ahead of residential design trends, and maintain their own individual creativity. Also, good interior designers have excellent space designing skills, so they can arrange a space efficiently and with ideal traffic flow. Ultimately, hiring a good interior designer means pinpointing one whose signature style is complementary to your personal style — so checking out many designers’ portfolios is a must — and whose communication methods match yours.

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.

How do you choose an interior designer?

Choosing an interior designer is all about finding one whose signature style fits well with your tastes and who can work within your budget. To choose the right professional for your interior design project, ask yourself these five questions:

  • What is your signature style? Good interior designers can both describe their personal aesthetic and demonstrate their signature style through their portfolios. Make sure it appeals to you.
  • How will you make sure the design fits my lifestyle? Good designers understand that the interior design must improve a homeowner’s experience in their home and fit into their lifestyle; for example, a white suede sofa is a poor choice for a family with large dogs and small children.
  • How much do you charge? Depending on the project, an interior designer may charge an hourly rate, a flat fee or a percentage of the project’s total cost.
  • How will you stick to my budget? An interior designer should have a plan for staying within your budget, which includes full transparency of costs and flexibility when choosing materials and furnishings.  

Because an interior design project is highly collaborative and based on hard-to-define personal preferences, it’s most important to choose a designer who communicates clearly and listens closely to you.
