Why should I stage?
Quality Staging highlights your home’s best features and distracts from less desirable ones, increasing its perceived value leading to a higher sales price and will statistically sell 11 times faster than non-staged competition. At Guest House, our focus is on creating an emotional connection during a buyer’s critical first impression through using quality, on-trend furnishings that create an inviting environment. When a buyer forms an emotional connection with your home, they’ll be more committed to an offer and likely more willing to increase it.
What type of homes do you stage?
We stage vacant or occupied single family homes, condos, townhomes and apartments.
Can you include existing furnishings in your staging?
We do our best to work with our customer’s needs to accommodate some furniture being left in the home if preferred, but it will be determined by what works within our design aesthetic.
Do you stage occupied listings?
We do stage occupied listings, however additional fees and restrictions will apply.
What’s your lead-time?
Our lead time shifts seasonally but is typically within 7-10 business days.
Can we tour the home before I book?
If you’d like to schedule a tour before you book, we do charge a $250 deposit that will go toward your final staging costs. Photos and videos are always an option as well.
How do I book a staging?
To book a staging with Guest House, you can simply fill out our instant quote form at guesthouseshop.com/homestaging where you’ll enter your contact information and details about your listing. Your dedicated account manager will then be in touch to review and discuss the project with you and make any necessary adjustments to your instant quote such as install dates or scope changes. You can then follow the checkout flow on your quote page to purchase your staging package and reserve a date.
Our basic staging packages include one-on-one design time with our lead designer + stylists and staging of the living room, dining room and kitchen. Additional rooms and services can be added to scope upon request.
What type of inventory do you have?
We partner with over 50 furniture brands to curate a staging collection that is versatile yet unique. We have a large selection of pieces meant to accent a variety of homes and styles. Overall, Guest House is more modern, minimal and intentional with our designs.
Are the staging furnishings for sale?
Yes! We offer all of our furnishings for sale and everything can be left behind for the new buyers before they move in. Even you aren’t interested in purchasing the home, you can still shop the furnishings by texting us using the number shown in the home or simply ask the listing agent for the link to shop the home.
