Premiere Home Stagers recently consulted on a possible vacant staging. We gave a proposal that included staging the living room, dining area, master bedroom/bath, and an office, plus delivery. The homeowner is not sure if he can afford the staging. Our response is staging is much less expensive than your first price reduction.
We’ve tried all possibilities to get realtors and homeowners to understand the value of vacant home staging. In an article, “Staging a Vacant Home,” (homestaging.about.com), the author says a vacant home needs to be staged for the following reasons:
- An empty home feels cold and barren
- Without furniture, there is no way for buyers to judge room sizes
- An empty home echoes
- Buyers notice every tiny imperfection
- Vacant spaces don’t encourage buyers to linger
- An empty house signals buyers are eager to sell
Premiere Home Stagers is a member of the home staging trade organization, RESA (Real Estate Staging Association). During a recent discussion, group members posted what they charge to stage an average vacant home. The prices varied from $2,000 to $10,000 for an average home.
In South Central Wisconsin, we charge a very reasonable all-inclusive amount. Want to know what it is? Call us at 608-345-9396 and we’ll give you the most bang for your buck. Plus, your house is likely to sell within 30-40 days. How do I know? Because that is our average “days after staging” statistic.
