The age old dilemma for a real estate agent is “should we stage this vacant home?” There are many levels of home staging and to say “yes” right off the bat is not really feasible. The easiest and most inexpensive way to stage is having a designer come in to the home and tell the seller what they should do to prepare their home for buyers to be more appealed to. Some staging companies have a 2 or 3 month minimum rental. The Denver Foothills area staging costs between $2,500 to $6,000 per month.
Uncovering the Mystery: The Ultimate Home Staging Debate
When it comes to selling a home, real estate agents are faced with the age-old question: “Should we stage this vacant home?” With countless statistics published by staging companies claiming that staged homes sell faster and for more money, it can be tough to determine the real impact of home staging. While some may argue that they’ve seen many homes sell within just a few weeks, even without furniture or basic fixtures, the value of home staging cannot be denied.
A Cost-Effective Solution: The Staging Consult
One of the easiest and most cost-efficient ways to stage a home is through a staging consult. This involves bringing in a professional designer to give the seller advice on how to prepare their home for prospective buyers. Using the seller’s existing furniture, the designer will declutter and rearrange the space to make it more appealing. Not only is this option more affordable, as the seller is using their own furniture, but it can also have a greater impact than just a real estate agent giving advice, as the seller is more likely to take the advice of a professional.
The Ultimate Investment: Staging a Vacant Home
However, when it comes to staging a completely vacant home, things can get expensive. According to a survey conducted among the largest Facebook real estate group in the country, costs can range from $2,500 to $6,000 per month, with some staging companies requiring a minimum of 2-3 months. This includes the original consult, renting and moving in the furniture, arranging it, and moving it out when the home is sold. While this may seem like a hefty investment, it’s important to consider the intangible benefits that home staging can bring.

Home Staging Statistics When Selling – Is it Worth it?
The age old dilemma for a real estate agent. “should we stage this vacant home?” There are plenty of statistics (published by Staging
companies of course) saying staged homes sell faster and for more money. Not sure if I believe all the statistics since I have seen many homes sell in out market over the last few years in less that 2 weeks that were vacant with no furniture. They didn’t even have shower
curtains in some and they sold in 3 days above list price. There are many levels of staging and to say “yes” right off the bat is not really feasible. The easiest and most inexpensive way to stage, that as a real estate agent, I would not only say “yes” to but I would gladly pay is the staging consult. That is having a designer come in to the home and tell the seller what they should do to prepare their home for buyers to be more appealed to the home. It is an easy thing, usually takes a couple hours, the stager uses the sellers furniture. That is the key for this type of staging, it is basically a staging company coming in and arranging and decluttering for the sellers. This type of staging works out great since it is an actual professional telling the sellers they need to de-clutter more and how to set up the furniture. Sometimes that has a little more impact than just a Realtor advising the seller of this. The other reason this type of staging is feasible is that the seller is providing furniture and it doesn’t need to be rented from the stager. The consult usually only cost a few hundred dollars and as real estate agent I would gladly flip the bill for that one.
Home Staging or Not to Stage – A Vacant Home – That is the Question
Now this is where things get very pricey. When the choice of staging needs to be taken into to consideration. When it isn’t as much of a “no-brainer”. As the member of one of the largest Facebook real estate groups in the country I posed this question about staging to the community and was kind of shocked by the response. This group is composed of real estate agents from all over the country. Many different markets and price points. It seems that the market I am in costs over twice as much to stage a vacant home. Remember though a vacant home needs the original consult, renting the furniture as well as moving it in, arranging it and then moving it out when the home is sold. The quotes I was getting in the Denver Foothills area was between $2,500 to $6,000 per month. Some staging companies have a 2 or 3 month minimum rental. Keep in mind this was not a very large home. The home was under 3,000′ Sq and 3 bedroom. That is a very large chunk of change and a pretty heavy investment to make for something that is intangible and unable to measure the true impact it actually has on buyers…..[Read More]
