  • 1. What is home staging?

    A:Home Staging is visually merchandising your home so that it is appealing to a wide range of buyers. The goal of staging is to highlight the positive features of the home while downplaying the negative. Home staging is depersonalizing the home so a buyer can visualize himself or herself living in the home.

  • 2. Why should I stage my home?

    A:Every seller wants to get top dollar for his or her home. Staging your home will help it appeal to a wide range of buyers, which will help it sell more quickly and for top dollar.  Not staging your home will only help sell your competition’s home.

  • 3. How much does home staging cost?

    A:Because nearly 90% of homebuyers start their search on the Internet, staging is a good way to make sure online photos stand out. Home sellers spend an average of $1,800 to stage a home, but costs can range from a $695 to $5,000 or more.

  • 4. Who pays for home staging?

    A:In most cases, the homeowner pays for home staging. The real estate agent sometimes will pay for the home staging consultation fee.

  • 5. Do you have any proof that home staging works?

    A:96% of our staged properties sell in less than 30 days. The homes we staged sat on the market for 97 days BEFORE staging. After Bella Casa Staged those same properties, they sold on average in 11 days. Staging works! And Bella Casa Home Staging is the best of the best.
