You don’t have to spend huge sum of money, if it makes the difference between people walking in and falling in love with the home or picking it apart.
The average price to stage a vacant home is $2000; that includes 1 Living Area, 1 Dining Area, Master Suite, Kitchen, and all Baths. This includes Furnishings to best highlight the property features and minimize any flaws, Delivery, Installation/staging, and Pickup for a 2 month term. A proposal will be provided based on the number of rooms to be staged.
