Please note that because the staging needs for every home is different, Real Estaging is always happy to answer any specific questions regarding your property and its particular staging needs.
1. How much does home staging cost? Answer: Pricing begins at $125. The more services needed and provided by Real Estaging, the higher the cost. It is important to note that our property styling services and "loan" of props are rolled into one flat fee for our Enhance, Furnish and Model service levels.
4. Do you have sources for furniture and will you evaluate the space, make recommendations on what furniture to get and then facilitate all of it? What would that cost? Answer: Yes, we do offer some furniture rental from our own inventory, but the majority of our furniture is supplied through area furniture rental companies. Rental companies are better able to accommodate the variety of staging pieces that work with a properties needs with all the various sizes, styles and delivery issues we encounter. We will evaluate the space, put together a styling plan and provide the rental company with a specific list of furniture items needed. The rental company will provide us with a quote that we pass directly to the client. We will coordinate the delivery, pick-up and any rental furniture issues.
- Styling & Merchandising Expertise – includes assessing property, developing a stylizing plan, selection and coordination of any outside rental furniture, selection of accessories from our prop inventory and shopping for specific items needed for a particular job. It also includes on-site stylists who will set & arrange all props including furniture, artwork and accessories and photograph and document the project for future marketing needs (frequently used by agents).
- Real Estaging’s Prop Usage Fee – price will vary depending on whether we are working with a vacant property or integrating our props with that of the seller to enhance the space.
- Delivery Services – Labor to pack, deliver and retrieve props and truck usage.
9. Is there a price break if the rental goes beyond the minimum rental term? Answer: If the staging goes beyond the initial three months, the client pays us only for the rental of the Real Estaging props used. We also continue to provide the third month free for each two months of rental (if they rent for a total of six months they will only be charged for 4). We require a credit card authorization on file and we will automatically charge the client a monthly rental fee if we do not receive instruction 10 days prior to the contract expiration date to remove our items. We will provide them with a monthly rental price in our initial proposal. If we need to stage using 3rd party rental furniture, the rental company will provide a monthly fee as well.
10. Is a security deposit required for props supplied by Real Estaging? Answer: NO. However we ask that your client fill out a credit card authorization form that we keep on file. If our property is damaged or missing then we will put through a charge based on the cost of the items in question and your client will be notified of such charges.
11. What is your payment schedule? Is there a deposit due when the initial agreement to stage is made? Is the payment due on delivery? How much is required when? Answer: In order to schedule a job a 50% deposit is required. When the job is staged, the balance is due upon completion of the on-site work. Your client can give us a check when we leave the property or we put through a credit card charge that day.
When determining a price to stage a vacant room, we consider such variables as: size and layout of space, natural light in the room, how a room flows with the rest of the house (condo), intended use of the space, total areas to be staged and window to wall ratio (the amount of wall space that needs art). When we are pricing a home that is being occupied by the sellers we use the same variables in addition to what items are need to enhance the existing furnishings.
The following prices are rental cost ranges based on averages for furnishing a vacant room. These costs are monthly fees and do not include delivery fees.
What would be the “typical” monthly rental fee for a:
- Living room $400 - $600
- Dining room $300 - $500
- Bedroom (with a queen size bed) $350 - $550
- Office $125 - $400
In addition to the rental fee is the staging cost which includes the components defined under styling and merchandising expertise. This is a one time initial fee and costs an average of $250 per room. Please note these fees represent averages and are not actual quotes.
