real estate staging


  • 90% of buyers search listings online before contacting an agent

  • if your listed property does not appear magazine-worthy on MLS, buyers will never view it in person

  • when they contact an agent, they have made a top 10 list of homes to view


  • by the time they reach number 6 on their list, they have made their first offer


  • the average cost of professional staging is less than the additional mortgage payments accrued during a lengthy listing time

  • a professionaly staged home sells for 6-17% more than an unstaged home

  • professional real estate staging brings higher offers:  national stats are 6-17% higher than an unstaged property
  • professional real estate staging provides wider appeal:  the property will appeal to the widest audience possible
  • professional real estate stagings have more showings:  agents are more eager to show move-in ready propterties to their clients
  • professional real estate staging reduces negotiation: staging draws the buyers eye away from perceived “negatives”

real estate staging services

We provide two services for staging. The first is a comprehensive staging report. In this report I will go through each room of the home and give specifications of what needs to happen. I will also specify appropriate paint colors if needed. This full report is $525. Agents or homeowners have the option to complete the staging using the report or we can do it for you.

If you would like for SC&D to complete the hands on staging, furniture arranging, arrange for painting, and carry out the report recommendations, the fee is $150 per hour, or $175 an hour with an assistant. Furniture rental and prop rental will be priced separately. Our report gives an estimate of the hours needed for hands on staging of the property so you will have an approximate cost included in your report.
