Premium Occupied Consultation - $325 **MOST POPULAR**
Includes everything from the standard consultation, with the following additions:
MLS Listing shared on our social media sites, including additional postings for open houses. Social media accounts include Twitter, Facebook, Google + and Linkedin(a)
Finishing Touches™* – a Beyond The Stage Homes team member will return on the day of photos (immediately prior) for our Finishing Touches™ service.

Vacant Home Staging Consultation
Home staging plan
Quote for furniture and accessory rentals, as well as home staging services to deliver, install, and style
This consultation applies only to fully vacant and unoccupied listings (i.e. home contains no furnishings or habitants).
Cost of consultation service is refundable if BTSH is hired for Full Service Staging.
Full Service Staging
Prices and services will vary - please schedule a consultation to receive pricing for additional services.
For vacant, unoccupied homes, an estimate of staging rentals and associated fees is included with a Vacant Home Consultation. While each home is unique, and therefore the only way to properly provide a quote for home staging is through our consultation, the average investment for staging a home (including all staging rentals, service fees, and delivery/pickup) is approximately $5,000, and the minimum generally starts at $2500 (which would include approximately 3 staged major rooms, plus bathrooms, hallways, and entrance).
Take a look at some our previous home staging projects here.
Restyled to Sell
With this service, the BTSH team will return to your home following the consultation to provide our expert home staging services utilizing only items that you already have! We will re-arrange and style your home (BTSH lead stager + assistant for up to 3 hours). This service is ONLY available to those clients that have already received a home staging consultation. Some conditions apply - contact us for details.
Perfect for investors! This consultation has been specifically designed for fix and flip properties – we will meet with you at the investment property PRIOR to any renovations to review your plans. We will provide recommendations for what is necessary for resale, and review what areas will provide what type of returns on resale. This consultation could help you to avoid costly, unnecessary renovations! We will also provide a basic staging plan based on the initial renovation plans to allow you to budget for home staging from the beginning. Partial consultation fee refundable if BTSH is hired for full vacant staging services on completion of work – contact for details!
1 hour walk-through of your home following the home staging consultation and prior to the photos and listing. Once you have had a chance to implement most of our recommendations, we will return to answer any questions that you may have, review the work completed, outline the next steps, and ensure that you are on the right track! (Usually scheduled within the week prior to listing.)
15 minute complimentary final primping immediately prior to photos. (Included with Premium and Executive Occupied Home Staging Consultation Packages only.)
Photo Prep Staging Sessions
Provide 1 hour of home staging services immediately prior to listing photos - home stager will work with your items within the house to adjust and arrange for optimal placement and styling.
DeCluttering and Organizing
BTSH can help you with the packing process - we offer two options to the decluttering and packing services:
Simply pack away what we feel is not adding to the decor and what is not needed day-to-day.
Declutter and Sort - this takes more time, and we request that the client be available for review. For this option, we will sort into "pack", "donate", "dispose", and "keep" prior to packing. The client has final say befor anything is donated or disposed of.
Prefer to own instead of renting your home staging decor for use in your next home? Enlist your expert BTSH home stager to source, select, and stage the items needed on your behalf. PLUS receive any available discounts from our trusted suppliers*.
*BTSH qualifies for varying discounts at local suppliers - discounts are only available to BTSH team members and are not provided direct to clients without a BTSH team member present.
furniture and decor rentals - how it works
At BTSH we uniquely own all rental inventory, and avoid dealing with outside suppliers. This allows us more flexibility with style, pricing, and rental terms. Many think of renting staging items only for vacant homes, but that’s not always the case. With no minimum rentals, you can rent as little or as much as you require (no minimum applies to homes that hire BTSH for a full home staging consultation only - some conditions apply). It can be as simple as a few pieces of artwork and accessories, to full rooms of furniture. Pricing will vary depending on what is rented, and includes rental and service fees (service fees include time required to create staging plan, plus select, pack, prepare, and install staging items, and return for destaging). Have an unfurnished and unoccupied property? BTSH is an expert in vacant home staging!
What makes us different? BTSH is committed to the quality of our designs, and our service. Hire BTSH to stage your home, and receive up to two months of furniture, artwork, and/or accessory rentals for the price of one. We’re so confident that your home will sell quickly, that you won’t require the second month of rentals, which is why we promise that if we are hired to stage your home, and it doesn’t sell in the first month, your second month of rentals is FREE!** We call it our "Peace of Mind Clause".
