Professionals make it look easy. What does it really take from first assessment to creative design through actual labor needed to stage a vacant home to achieve expert results from cold empty rooms to beautiful rooms photo-shoot worthy of a magazine spread.
Consider on average, it may take anywhere from 20-60 hours, depending how many rooms and how the large the rooms are, for professional stagers along with their assistants, and movers from start to finish to stage and de-stage 2000 – 4000 sq. ft homes.
The following is what happens behind the scenes before, during and after for that fabulous staging to take place.
Just as in any industry the seasoned professionals make the job look like anyone can do it, but don’t be fooled, there is a lot of work that goes into staging a vacant home, from the creative design aspect through the hard labor required to transform the home. Then the home must be dismantled and returned to its original state prior to settlement, as well as all of the furnishings must be returned back into the company inventory. This is not a job for the faint of heart or as glamorous as being dressed for the red carpet while placing a few pillows and candles in a home!
After all the work that is required to professionally stage a home, Is it a worthwhile investment to hire a professional staging company to stage your home?
Only if you value the time on the market it takes to sell your home and the money you will save in carrying costs while your home stays on the market.
And only if are looking for real ROI, return on investment, on one of your greatest assets; your home!
But like any other worthwhile investment, you need to invest to receive a return on investment. Savvy home sellers know the value of home staging and wouldn’t think of going on the market without having their home professionally staged. Why would anyone throw money away by not staging?
