Let me tell you how I work…
If I am hired as your Exclusive Listing Agent, I will provide staging services for free so long as you use your existing furniture and accessories to stage your home. Otherwise, there are rental fees involved should you wish to rent inventory to prepare your home for sale.
It all starts with a consultation. The consultation includes a 2-3 hour walk-through of your property. If it is occupied, the investment is $250 for the average sized home. I will provide a room-by-room assessment, which will extend outdoors to include both curb appeal and the backyard. The assessment will comprise any recommendations of what needs to be done to get your home ready for the marketplace.
The seller can either take notes or I can prepare an outline; which I will ultimately email for reference to do the work on their own. Should they want me to complete the recommendations myself, the fee will depend on the scope of the work involved and whether any rental items will be needed.
If the property is vacant, I will prepare a Bid detailing the pricing for the rooms that require staging.
A home staging project is comprised of three separate investments; which include: Staging, Furniture Rental, and Delivery / Pick-up. Each project varies in accordance to what needs to be accomplished. Costs for delivery and pick-up can range from $250-$350 depending on the distance traveled.
The process includes pricing of the rental items and assessing the time it takes to arrange and complete the staging project. It is customary for rental companies to charge a minimum of three months upfront; in addition to a monthly charge for the insurance waiver and tax. If a client should prefer to rent inventory for less than three months, rental companies will charge a higher fee.
When I have an appointment to stage a property, it needs to be clean and prepped for Staging. If it isn’t ready, there may be an additional charge. Staging Spaces and Places requires a 48 hour (2 days) notice to reschedule a Staging commitment date. If that time is not secured, the Homeowner agrees to pay a $150 ‘lost time’ fee.
The Homeowner agrees that Staging Spaces and Places will de-stage the property and remove inventory on the date mutually agreed upon between the Homeowner and Staging Spaces and Places. Once a Purchase and Sale Agreement has been signed, any items used to stage the property shall be removed. An advance notice of 14 days is preferred so we can accommodate a time to collect the Accessory Inventory, and, if applicable, any Furniture Inventory.
