Staging Pods by Sue

Introducing The Staging Pod

A new concept in home staging that saves time and money and is ready when you are.

Traditionally, home staging requires a lot of lead time and can be expensive (around $1500). A stager must first assess the home, draw up a plan and budget and THEN go shopping for the items needed. Those are wasted days that your home could be on the market.

I make it simple and affordable.

Staging Pods are pre-curated to be cohesive in style and theme and can be brought out to your home with short notice.

They now come in 4 different sizes to meet your needs and budget

Extra Large Staging Pod- This is a new offering. An Extra Large includes 10-12 pieces of furniture and works great in homes over 2200 sq. ft. It can also make a smaller home look more lived in by addressing more rooms.

Cost for set up/take down and two months' rent of an Extra Large Staging Pod is $1295. Additional months are optional at $395 per month.

Large Staging Pod - This size pod has become the most popular. It includes 7-9 pieces of furniture and fills up an average sized home very well. As in the Medium Pod, the large will typically address the living room and master. But then I add things like a console table, a dining table, bar stools and/or more seating to fill the space out. You can decide where you want the extra emphasis or we can let the house tell us.

The cost for a Large Staging Pod is $975 for set up/take down and two month's rent. Additional months are optional at $295.

Medium Staging Pod- This pod is probably the most basic and is the workhorse of all the Pods. It comes with 4-6 pieces of furniture which are usually used to furnish the living room and master. It's a lighter touch and works well in a smaller home. It can be added to existing furniture or it can stand alone in a vacant home.

The cost is $645 for set up/take down and 2 month's rent. Each additional month is $195.

Small Pod - This size works very well in a home that already has furniture. But it can add freshness, color and style to any home including a vacant one. It can include a couple pieces of furniture but always includes art, decor and textiles for the kitchen, bath and main room of the home.

Cost for set up/take down and 2 month's rent of a Small Pod is $325. Each additional month is $95

In this home, as well as most homes that opt for a Small Staging Pod, the seller has left behind some furniture, curtains and a rug.

It is my job to make YOU successful. You probably already know that staged homes sell faster and for a higher price than empty homes.

Realtor.com reports that for every dollar you spend in staging, you generally get back $4. Not a bad return.

If you are ready to make the investment to stage your home for sale, let your real estate agent know. We will draw up a contract and can be out staging your home within a day or two.

All sizes of Staging Pods include art, plants, and textiles for the furnished rooms as well as the kitchen and bath.

Naturally, the larger the Pod, the more decor.

There's always the disclaimer. I want to be clear about what Staging Pods ARE NOT.

To keep costs down (on trucks, storage, muscle men), Staging Pods do not contain large pieces of furniture such as sofas or dressers. Instead, I creatively use small furniture that might include benches (sofa substitutes), air beds, night stands, area rugs etc. to give the feel of a furnished space.

Also, I do not offer cleaning service. Homes must be clean and decluttered prior to staging. I will rearrange existing furniture on a limited basis (or consult seller on how to arrange furniture) but I prefer that the home is ready to go so that my job is to put the finishing touches on. It's another way I keep costs down.

I no longer offer staging in occupied homes. Sellers don't like to have my things around and it's just really impractical. If you have an occupied home, I can consult on how to stage or can stage with your own things on an hourly basis. Or ask about Day Staging.

I have stopped doing lanai spaces. The outdoors is just a dirty, buggy, space that is prone to theft. If you want lanai done, I will gladly use your furnishings to do it.

Payment in full is expected on the day of staging (or first day of billing cycle) unless other arrangements have been made. I do not pro-rate the initial staging cost nor do I offer pro-rated monthly rent.
