Debbie has staged kitchens and baths before just to give homes a little more life. It pays off in a quicker buyer.

Never staged a property. I would consider it for an "ugly" property. For a vacant property there are 2 schools of thought. #1 a vacant property looks bigger. #2 people have no vision and need to see furniture. The list price has nothing to do with to stage or not to stage.

Winston Heverly - I do my own "light staging," and it's part of the service. It doesn't matter what the price point is, if the property is vacant, I'll stage some rooms only, since inventory can be expensive, and storage after the property sells is problematic. If the property is not vacant, I work with the sellers to thin out and organize, and use their own furniture to stage.
Staging in my area is not typical, by the way, so I use it to my advantage when on listing presentations.
If you mean vacant staging, pricepoint isn't necessarily a consideration. However, if you have a property at the 300K pricepoint you have to ask if it is cost effective to pay anywhere from $2000++ to stage it.
If you mean a consultation which is idea. for occupied homes then any pricepoint can benefit.
Staging is a good option for homes that may have a perceived blemish.
For instance, if too many flooring types can be seen from one position, that can be addressed through staging.
Staging can create light and energy in a under developed space.
The listings I have staged were well above 300K.
The outcome in all my experiences with staging was the home sold within a week of staging after being on the market over a month.
Staging clearly created greater appeal but I can not say it sold for a higher price than expected.
Where I think it would be useful, I have my stager come in and do a consult. She tours the property, goes over her recommendations with the sellers and then submits detailed notes.
The seller's willingness to follow the recommendations is more important than price point.
we set our homeowners up with stagers....
I am thinking about virtual stagging a property that is $900 -1,000,00 . Looking for the right virtual stagging company?
