Frequently asked questions
What does Staging consist of?
We deliver furniture/decor to your home, load it in, and place it tastefully throughout your home. The goal is to make your home as beautiful and comfortable as possible so that it will sell quickly and for a high price.
When your home is sold, we remove all furniture and décor.
How much does Staging generally cost?
The approximate cost is around $1 per square foot of home.
If you have a 1,400 square foot home, you can expect to pay around $1,400.
If you have a 3,000 square foot home expect to pay around $3,000.
This is assumed that the home is currently empty, cleaned and ready to stage.
How far are you willing to travel to Stage or Photograph my home?
We travel anywhere within 120 miles of Boston.
This generally means as far
NORTH as Portland, ME; Woodstock, VT; and the White Mountains.
WEST as Keane, NH; Springfield, MA; or Hartford, CT
SOUTH as Newport, RI or Westerly, RI
EAST as Cape Cod
Is there a delivery cost?
All costs (gas, movers, travel time, furniture, décor, etc.) are included in the initial Staging quote given to you. You only pay one bill for all your Staging needs.
How long can I keep the Staging in my home?
We give you two months of staging for your initial Staging payment.
After that, we charge ½ of the initial cost on a per diem basis and bill you monthly until the home is sold and we move our Staging off your premises.
For example, if we charge you $2,000 to Stage your home on January 1st. You have the furniture and decor for free until March 1st. At which time we bill you half of your initial fee ($1,000) per month from then until you sell the home.
How long does Staging typically take from start to finish?
Once we arrive, we take between 2 – 5 hours to move all furniture/décor in and locate it properly. The amount of time is correlated with the size of the home.
How long does Photography typically take from start to finish?
Our photographers take between 1 and 2 hours once they are on site. Their goal is to capture the most beautiful angles of each room of your home, as well as the exterior and yard. You will get your edited photos back 48 hours after the photographer leaves your home.
What if a buyer wants to buy a piece from the Staging?
We are willing to sell any piece of Staging. Buyers can purchase them from us separately from the actual home sale. Also, if YOU would like to purchase one of our pieces, you can ask us for specific pricing.
How quickly do you pick up the Staging after our home sells?
We will schedule a pickup within 5 days after the buyer gets “clear to close” status, which means that they are through the inspection and financing period and are ready to set a day & time to close on your home.
How how much time does it take you to remove all Staging from our home?
We take 2 hours to remove all Staging from your home and load it in our box truck. We also sweep/vacuum where the furniture was placed.
