Imagine prospective buyers stepping into your home and instantly picturing their life there. They see a perfect spot for their office or a play area for their kids. They visualize their furniture fitting just right. Your home is spotless, spacious, and ready to move in. With professional home staging, your house could sell quickly and at a premium price.
Home staging, the art of showcasing a home’s best features, allows buyers to form an emotional connection and see themselves living there.
Some statistics show that staged homes can sell 78% faster and for up to 20% more, provided they are marketed well and priced competitively. It’s all about making the home appealing to buyers, and this strategy is equally effective for vacation or other rental properties.
If you’re wondering about the cost and process, this video is a great starting point. Remember, not staging your home could end up costing you more in the long run. As of 2023, prices have gone up at least 10% since I made this video several years ago.

Who is Home Staging For?
For Home Sellers
Whether your home is vacant or occupied, I can stage it to appeal to potential buyers. We’ll begin with an in-depth consultation covering interior, exterior, market research, and a comprehensive staging plan. You can implement this plan yourself, or I can assist partially or fully, based on your needs and budget. Staging helps your home outshine the competition, ensuring a swift sale at a great price. It’s a smart investment! To learn more, see our report, FAQs for Home Sellers on Home Staging.
I help your clients prepare their homes for top-notch photos and showings, resulting in fast sales and higher commissions for you. Typically, your clients cover the staging cost. For more details, see my report FAQs for Realtors on Home Staging.
For Builders and Real Estate Investors
I assist in selling your new home swiftly by furnishing and decorating it, enabling buyers to envision living there. After your significant effort and investment, it’s time to maximize your returns.
For Vacation Rental or Other Rental Property Owners
With Vacation Rental Staging, we can enhance your property’s appeal for better promotional photos, boosting your bookings and income. We’ll attract your ideal guests and I can also help review your website and strategize social media advertising.
Home Staging Options
All staging services start with a home staging consultation done in person or online.
Occupied Home Staging
Planning to stay in your home while it’s listed? Great! I can make the most of your existing items, saving you rental fees. Here are two examples: the first home sold on its first day for the full asking price, and the second sold within three weeks.
Vacant Home Staging
For vacant homes, I can provide all necessary items. Vacant properties can be challenging to sell as they lack emotional appeal for buyers. However, with proper staging, one such property that was on the market for years sold within just 7 weeks.
