Vacant Home Staging Rates?

Just got my first call for a vacant 5 bdrm home.....

Curious as to what you are all quoting for a vacant home?  I know it depends on quality of furniture, how many rooms etc.....just wondering what kind of ranges are out there?

 

Thanks!

My quote for a vacant property really has 3 components--monthly furniture rental costs (determined by furniture rental company) based on specific selections I make; my staging fee which I base on how many hours will be involved in shopping time as well as actual staging & de-staging (determine what you want your hourly rate to be); and monthly accessory rental fees (dependent on specific accessories I select). Every project really is unique, depending on the number of rooms involved and the client's budget. My best advice is to figure in extra time for staging (and the cost associated with this) as it usually does take more time than you plan. I find that I usually add more accessories (and thus more cost) than initially planned as well.

Hi Natascha,

I charge a flat fee for staging and include 3 months use of my accessories.  I usually stage the 'impact rooms' and only stage bedrooms if they are small and there is any question as to what size furniture will fit in the space.  I spend 1-2 days staging.

If you would like further information, please feel free to e-mail me.  My rates are very reasonable because I want everyone to feel that they can 'afford' to stage.

Thanks!

There is only 1 furniture rental place in my area, rent-a-center, I quoted my fee of $600 for the day, and then rental rates varying from $300 per month for 3 rooms (living, dining and bedroom), up to $3000 depending on how many rooms, how high end furniture....etc.......

 He seemed excited about this and said I would definately hear back from him.  So that is good.

Thanks !

Have a great day!

Don't forget to add your accessory rental in their too, that's where you can recoup your costs.  You might want to make this a members only post...just a thought!

Thanks!  I can't find out where to change it.....to a members only post.  I thought about that too after the fact.

Have a great day!

Also don't forget about your cost to de-stage.

I agree, charge rental fee for your accessories. Just take the retail price of the item and divide it by your estimated life of the item. Keep an inventory list with all your rental fees so when you put your stuff in someones house all you have to do is check the accessories you are using of your list and that way you can add up what it would cost your client to rent all your accessories.

oh by the way, in order mto make sure you will be compensated for your accessories make sure taht when you put in your bid you list cost for furniture rental and cost for acccessories rental seperately and them add then up. If you just list the furniture rental fee then you will be stuck putting your accesories in the home for free.

I am sure it will work out just fine!! Have fun with it!!
