We recently explained that you can save money on home staging if you’re home staging on a budget by only staging a few rooms of your house. Those rooms include the family room, the living room, and the dining room. There’s still another way to save some money on your home staging budget though. You can do the staging yourself, but hire a home stager for a walk-through. This is an appointment that lasts about an hour and a half to two hours. During that time, the home staging expert will offer suggestions for each room.
This consultation won’t be free, obviously. The range for a consultation will depend on the price range of the professional stager. The range is generally between $150-$600. Meanwhile, to have them actually follow through and stage the home, you’re looking at a price tag range of between $1,000 and $8,600.
Remember, while it can be expensive and a hassle to have home staging and even to simply hire a staging professional for a consultation, staged homes sell for up to 20 percent more than non-staged homes on the market. They also sell much faster. It’s feasible that you could cut the time your house is up for sale in half just because you opted to stage your home.
