Home staging is an investment in one of your largest assets and the investment you make will be less than the first price reduction you may have to consider later if you don’t stage now. Service costs vary from state to state but nationally, a vacant home will run about 5% of the home’s listing price. However, here in Midwest Michigan, the average vacant staging is 1-2% of the listing price. Ask your agent what the first price reduction would be and compare that to your quote for staging.
