Your investment in staging can vary depending on your needs. It can be as low as $150 to $175 for a consultation where we would give you an step by step plan on what you need to do to prepare your home for market and stage it yourself, to $500 to $2000 for staging with your furnishings and adding art, accesories and furnishings as needed. If the home is vacant stagng ranges from $1500 to $4000 depending on the size, style and location of the home. Furniture rental fees vary depending on the staging company.
When considering a staging company, always make sure they are insured, can provide testimonials and/or references and have a portfolio of their work. They should also be able to provide statistics fo the average time on market for the homes they have staged.
Hope this helps!
The bigger decision that you have to make is who to list it with. It is all about marketing your home to as many people as you can, especially online. The more people that see your home online, the more people that will come to see it in person. The more people that come & see your home, the faster you will sell it & the more you will sell it for. What I would recommend you do is interview all the agents that responded to your question here & just ask us why you should list with us, & not another agent. Then, let one of us get to work for you & get your home sold for the most money possible with the least hassle possible.
Good luck to you in any case,

I want to agree with David in that there is no average or typical fee. For my clients, our staging services are included with the listing. My wife is an accredited staging professional and has been able to work wonders in several listings. Now this generally does not include furniture rental. We commonly bring in a few pieces and work around what you have. The earlier we get involved the better. Sometimes the consultation will suggest some changes that may cost you some money, things like carpet, paint etc. But these are only suggested if the return will be substantial.
There are other agents with staging credentials, some who hire stagers and some who make suggestions.
I would encourage you to interview a few agents and see what they have to offer. If your home would benefit from staging, by all means take advantage. Occasionally we see some homes where only some minor de-cluttering and re-arranging is necessary. It will all come down to what you have to start with.
I wrote a blog about preparing for staging that you may find useful. It's attached below.
That depends on many things. Will it be fully staged, or partially staged? How large is the home? There is a wide range of pricing among the different staging companies. there also is a monthly fee if your home does not sell in the first few weeks. I work with an amazing stager who is about half the cost of comparable in quality companies.
In my listing that just closed today, I staged it with my wife at my own cost. I would be willing to talk with you and I could share the cost or pay for it myself if you have me list your home for you.

I had this vacant property staged for $1,500 including the separate apartment by The Sisters. They don't work all areas but are the lowest price I have found and they did an excellent job. Wasn't worth staging it myself at that price.
Other times I have considered using a professional stager the cost was $1,800 or so as a minimum and usually about $4,000 for a full and vacant home, so I usually stage it myself without a lot of furnishings like sofas and that has worked out well. It depends on the home, of course.
That depends primarily on the size of your home and how many rooms in your home you'd like to stage, and the type (quality of staging furniture and props).
For a 1500 sf home with 2-3 bedroom, expect to spend at least $1500 - $3500 for the first month. Subsequent months are generally +-/- 25% of the first month's cost.
Staging companies can vary tremendously from one to another, both in terms of pricing and quality of staging furniture so be sure to get referrals.
