How much does staging cost?
If you are living in the home and want to have a professional stager prepare it for buyer appeal, you should budget at least $1000. If you want the stager to bring in supplemental furnishings to accentuate your furnishings, budget $2500+.
For professional custom staging for 3-4 rooms using the stager’s furnishings with a 60 day initial deployment, budget at least $3700+. Staging costs are dependent on the square footage of areas staged, the rooms that are staged, and the list price of the home.
Expensive homes with 6+ rooms staged can easily cost over $6500. A good rule of thumb for budgeting vacant staging (stager supplies everything) is 0.5% of the list price from a minimum of $3700.
