How Much Does Staging Cost in Calgary?

February 18, 2015 (posted by Jennifer Campbell, Home Staging Calgary)

So just how much does home staging cost in Calgary these days? It’s a common question that can sometimes come with an assumption that staging remains a bonus for people who can afford it. Depending on your particular property, it’s probably more affordable than you think.

People are still trying to figure out what to make of the real estate market in Calgary recently with the changing oil situation. Understandably, it adds a level of uncertainty and therefore stress to what can already be a stressful process of buying and selling property. Sellers want to get the most out of one of their largest investments, and buyers want to get the best for what they can afford.

I see professional staging as a way to help both the buyer and seller (and realtor) through this emotional process. That’s because showing your property in the best possible way that appeals to buyers usually gets your property sold faster and often for a higher price. It helps buyers immediately get a feel for what it would be like to live there (there’s no guess work) so they can imagine creating memories in what will become their new home. It helps realtors do their job more efficiently.

Now, back to the question of staging cost. It depends on the type of service you purchase.

If you have a vacant property that requires full furniture and accessory rental, it will cost you more. If you have a fully furnished property that is already in great shape and just needs some furniture moved in different layouts or a bit of colour added through accessories, it will cost you less. And, if you are a do it yourself kind of person who wants to receive a list of suggestions that you will follow through on yourself, it will cost you the least of all. There’s a lot of room for flexibility to customize the service to meet your individual needs and budget. You just have to ask.

Yes, staging costs are an up-front investment. But you get to choose what that looks like.
