How much will it cost me to stage my home?
Typically in Utah, you will first do a consultation. A basic consult will cost you anywhere from $50-$75 per hour. (depending on location) Usually only consisting of some basic staging ideas. Remember we can't give away all our ideas in just one hour!
The most common consultation is the working consultation. This typically consists of 2 hours of beginning the staging work, and typically start at $200 for the first 2 hours and around $75 each additional. We start to re-arrange furniture, choose the items that need to be packed away as well as suggest paint colors etc. As well as leaving you with a detailed action plan to finish the staging.
Next is vacant staging. Costs for the vacant staging fee alone (furniture rentals extra) start at $450+up depending on the size of the home, how many rooms to be staged as well as location of the home etc.
Then you need to add furniture rental on top of that. A basic example in Utah for a 1200 sq ft condo staging the family room, dining room, master bedroom and 2 bathrooms would run you right around $1200 up front and anywhere from $600-$800 each month for furniture and accessory rentals.
Every staging company varies a little on price. But remember that usually, you get what you pay for. Make sure you see photos of past work so you know that your stager has experience. You might even ask to see current staged projects from the stager you are considering hiring!
