How much does home staging cost?

First of all, you should know that practice home staging is not at all costly. On the contrary, one of the great advantages of the operation is that the house finds a new lease of life without additional costs. We don’t spend a lot of money: at most, a few cans of paint for the walls and cupboards, and a few throws or cushions to dress the sofa. On average, accessories for home staging barely represent 1% of the selling price. Their price sometimes climbs up to 4%.

All the same, call a home staging professional to come and give you advice on the improvements to be made, then do it yourself! Of course, having enough time to do this is imperative, since repainting the walls in the house can be quite time consuming.

To find new decorative items or furniture at a lower cost, do not hesitate to go hunt in flea markets and garage sales. You can also wait for promotions offered by major brands to take advantage of discounts on paint, cushions and other decorative items … To improve your interior, you must also think about clearing the rooms. Remove everything that is unnecessary for visitors (family photos, knick-knacks, etc.): they will be able to more easily appropriate the space and project themselves. Also fix burnt out light bulbs, leaky faucets, and oil squeaky doors. It doesn’t cost anything!
