Questions to Ask When Hiring a Home Stager
A home stager can help you decide what parts of your home are assets and which areas need
improvement. Staged homes look better in online photos – and this can help create more
showings. Staging your home can also help you to sell quicker and, hopefully, for a better
price. Here are some tips on hiring a home stager.
Start by asking whether the home stager has any formal training or past experience. Ask for a list of
references and photos of other homes they’ve staged.
Ask about their fees. Are fees monthly or a flat rate? Always ask for a set budget and a contract.
Ask the stager how they choose what furniture and décor go into a home, and whether they are
available to work within your timeline. Lastly, ask if their business is covered by insurance.
If you are considering hiring a home stager to help present your home at its best, and appeal to
buyers, you’ll want to hire someone who is right for you and your home.
