Your Home Staging Options

September 28, 2013

Toronto Home StagingBecause of its proven results, home staging has become a popular tool for home sellers and real estate professionals when it’s time to sell.

If you are unsure on what staging service will fit you, here are the common staging services most home stagers offer in your location. I hope this can help you decide which staging option can help you best.

Staging Consultations

This is the least you can do for your home before putting it on the market.  A staging consultation is the best route if you are on a tight budget. In a staging consultation,  you will be provided professional advice and recommendations or a plan of action on how and what is needed to be done to best showcase your home. My advice is to ask as much as you can during this time (regarding furniture placement, lay-out, color motif, accessories etc.), jot it down (some stagers will give you a full report after consultation), be sure you have all the information you need to stage your own home.  If you feel you cannot tackle it on your own, or you do not have time to do it, the staging plan of action can be implemented by the stager.

Occupied Property Staging

This service starts with a consultation. Stagers need a better grasp of your home’s condition and an idea on what you have in terms of furniture and accessories. Stagers may or may not use your existing  furniture based on their professional judgement; they might also bring in some rental furniture and accessories to work with what you have, if needed. The challenge for home owners is maintaining the staged look of the property while living in it. If staging can’t be maintained, the money spent on staging will be put to waste. Be sure to ask the stager for quick tips and ways on how to make this transition easier for you.

Vacant Property Staging 

As the name implies, this service is geared towards totally vacant homes. The stager will come in to do the assessment of needed furniture and accessories enough to effectively showcase the property. Once every piece of furniture has been decided upon, it will be brought in and set up to make sure the house looks move-in-ready for your buyers. You do not have to lift a finger for this option; the staging company will facilitate everything from choosing the right furniture and accessories,  to delivery, set-up,  and pick-up once the property is sold.

Partial Staging

Partial staging is another option if you are on tight budget. It is staging only the key rooms in the house and leaving other rooms empty. This is usually done in vacant properties. Most staging professionals do not recommend this route because it creates confusion and sometimes raises concerns to some buyers in house showings.  However, some home owners and real estate professionals  prefer to do it this way to cut cost when staging. The key rooms, such as the living room, dining room, family room, kitchen and the master bedroom, will be staged and showcased while leaving the other rooms empty.

Expect to spend from three hundred dollars for a staging consultation (this may vary depending on your location), to a few thousand dollars for a full house staging service. Except for home staging consultations that usually last for 1-3 hours, other home staging services may last for several days or weeks depending on the scope of work and the condition of your home.

Home staging is an investment, and not an expense when selling your home. Whether you choose a consultation or a full house staging, preparing your home before your first buyer steps in is the smarter way to sell your home faster and to land the best offer!
