How it Works



One of the easiest ways to incorporate home staging when selling is the purchase a home staging consultation – that’s when we will enter the home for a short period to assess the space and determine what needs to be completed. 

We will either tell you or write out our findings, and usually put a proposal together for further work. You can also do this online in an e-staging consultation by providing us photos of the property.

Occupied Staging.

If the seller is living in the home while on the market, we will use the homeowner's belongings to prepare the home for sale, called an owner-occupied staging. 

With this service, H.O.M.E. will rearrange and remove items, accessorize and sometimes complete small repairs. 

Our experienced team will use what’s already in the home but may also bring in key accessories to update and complete the look buyers will appeal to. Many times, the seller will have homework to complete – like cleaning, packing or organizing items prior to the staging day. 

What does it cost?

Each staging opportunity is unique so there is no flat cost. 

Factors that determine the price are square footage of the property, if the Seller needs to rent any items from H.O.M.E., and estimated time to complete the staging.



One of the costliest mistakes made by home sellers and real estate agents is to ignore the visual psychology involved in gaining a buyer’s immediate attention.  Potential buyers become interested in a property when they walk in the door and feel, “I could live here.”

Homeowners and real estate agents alike often assume staging is all or nothing, but that’s simply not the case. There are many different ways you can work with a home stager to properly prepare a home for sale. 

Every home can benefit from some form of staging. Sellers may just need some advice or an action plan to follow, while others may need the stager to actually complete the work or coordinate rental furnishings and design the space. The seller can be as involved as they want depending on their needs and budget.

Real estate agents often believe home staging should only be used if the space is vacant, because very few buyers can visualize the potential of a space. A vacant staging is when the stager will rent furniture and accessories to dress up an empty space. The stager will be there for the delivery and set everything up so it’s ready to show off.
