So, your home is going on the market and you’ve decided that investing in staging your home is a wise choice- great! Then the real question sinks in: what does home staging in San Diego actually cost?
House Staging in San Diego can run the full range of prices depending on what you are looking for, as well as the size and location of the home. The staging company will want to know how many square feet your home is, how many rooms you want staged, what types of rooms (a living room will require more work than a bathroom), and how quickly you need it done.
With so many factors playing a role in the total cost of staging, the short answer is that most home stagings in San Diego typically run anywhere between $700 and $7500. That’s a broad range. How are you supposed to know what to expect when home staging in San Diego? Clearly, this range help much when it comes to clear expectations, so let’s break it down a bit more.
Simple Layout Adjustment and Interior Design:
If your home features minimal furnishings, simple decor, and bright, open spaces, you will likely only need a layout adjustment and interior design advice. As this sort of staging is more strategic with less physical labor and furnishings, you would likely see a smaller bill, typically in the $700-$2000 range.
Speed and Quality:
No matter what service you’re seeking in this world, you should always be prepared to pay more for speedy delivery and quality furniture. At Universal Staging, we can set up an appointment for you within 24 hours, unlike many other companies that will put you off for weeks. Plus, all of our furniture is high-end and premium quality -which is something you should definitely look out for when selecting a staging company. We’ve heard nightmare stories of ugly furniture scuffs, chipped paint and musty smelling furniture. Don’t let this happen to you!
Some homeowners prefer to do partial staging to highlight specific areas with complementary furniture and artful touches. These are typically larger spaces that are harder for potential buyers to get a feel for. Most popular in this category would be primary living spaces (such as living rooms and large patio areas) and bedrooms. As there are less rooms being furnished and decorated, this would understandably be a more economical solution for those on a budget, costing anywhere between $1000 and $4000 depending on square footage and location of the home.
For a full home staging in San Diego, you can expect to pay anywhere between $1000 and $7500. This takes a vacant, empty home and makes the entire space more inviting and visually appealing to buyers, helping them to imagine the true potential of the space and “mentally move in”. This is the most recommended option as it really excites potential buyers and gets them openly envisioning what it would feel like to live in the home.
A full house staging in San Diego means that your home would be completely furnished with new, high-quality furnishings to best catch the eye of high-bidding buyers and accentuate the best features of your home. This option can vary greatly in price, depending on the square footage of the home, the location and the rooms that need to be staged. Typically it averages around $1-2 per square foot. For example, a 2000 square foot home is typically between $2000-$4000.
While staging your home for market is definitely an investment, it’s a good one. Staged homes typically sell for 6% above the asking price and 17% more than non-staged homes. They also spend far less time on the market. A study from the Real Estate Staging Association found that staged homes spend up to 73% less time on the market than unstaged homes. Once all is said and done, the return on investment for staged homes usually comes out to about 8-10% according to the National Association of Realtors.
