How It Works


Take a look of Staged4more's home staging and visual design process and home staging FAQ.

HOW IT WORKS

1. Get In Touch

Like what you see on our website? Like our 5-star reviews on Yelp? Please get in touch! We are happy to chat with you about your project and your expectations. During our phone conversation, we will also set a date and time to visit your property in person.

3. Proposal via Email

After meeting with you, the team will discuss strategies on how to stage your project that is not only budget friendly and looking great both online and in person.

5. The Big Reveal

99% of our home staging projects are 1-day process, which means your home will be staged and ready to be photographed by the end of day. Did we mention that we include professional photography with our home staging services?

If your project will take more than 1 day, you will be notified in advanced. It will also be outlined in your work agreement.

Once the photographer is finished (usually within 1 day turnaround), we will send the high resolution photos to you for your marketing needs. If you need help with flyers and video tours, we can also help you with that!

Most of our visual design project takes more than 1-day. This is usually discussed beforehand and outlined again in the work agreement.

2. Meet In Person

During this meeting, we will walk through the project with you, take notes and photos for space planning. This meeting is purely for the purpose of estimating your project, if additional design consult is requested, it is an add-on service.

4. Show Time!

Once the proposal is accepted, we set a date and you will receive a work agreement to confirm the date.

Before your staging date, we typically spend half to full (or more if it's a larger project) day prepping for your project in our 6,000 square feet warehouse.

Your staging investment will be due at this time before the work is started.

6. Wrap & Pack

Once your home is sold and the contingencies are removed, (or when you are ready), we will remove all the staging inventory out of the home. Usually this process takes about 3-4 hours on site. You will also receive a final invoice (if there is any).

For our visual design projects, removal and breakdown will be discussed prior to start of project. This will also be outlined in the work agreement.


FAQ: HOME STAGING

Q: What is included in your proposal?

A: In our proposal, we will outline individual rooms and its accompanying pieces. Additionally, we offer 30-, 60- and 90- day contracts so you can decide based on your budget needs.

Q: What type of furnishing and accessories will you use in our home staging projects?

A: Just take a look at our portfolio. We call our styling “transitional,” depending on the geographic areas, neighborhood and your target demographics, we will style the interiors a little bit more contemporary or traditional. During our 8+ years in business, we have developed the styling that works for today’s buyers.

Q: How much does staging cost? And who pays for home staging?

A: It varies each project, since every home is different and there are many different factors that go into figuring out the final price: how the staging pieces will be moved in and out of your home, parking, inventory quality, amount of labor and inventory needed for your project. Typically, most of projects start around $2000.

In our experiences, most of the time the homeowners pay for the investment of home staging. There are some instances where the real estate agents include home staging as part of their marketing services.

Q: How do we know you will do a great job?

A: We are very consistent in our styling, as you can see in our portfolio. We also have been in business for 8+ years, quality control is very important to us. We want to make every project shine on the market so the listing agents look good, the house shows well, and home owners can breathe a sign of relief when they sell the house.

It is important for us that our projects to look amazing, after all, our reputation is very important to us! This is why we go one step above and beyond and include professional photography with our staging services. Additionally, we invest in our inventory. We now retire old inventory quarterly and purchase new inventory periodically to make sure our staged interiors stay fresh and on trend.

You can also check our Yelp and LinkedIn reviews. We can’t fake those raves!

Q: What areas do you service?

A: We primarily service San Mateo County and San Francisco County.

If you have a project outside these two counties, please contact us for availability.

Q: What is the estimated savings from home staging?

A: Here is a handy home staging savings calculator.

Q: Do you own the furniture and home accessories you use for home staging?

A: Yes, 100%. They are housed in our 6,000 square feet warehouse in South San Francisco. This is why we can offer you better pricing comparing to stagers who rent from a 3rd party furnishing rental place.

Q: What is included in your home staging contract?

A: Specific pieces will differ from home to home based on your budget, needs and target buyers. Generally speaking, your staging contract includes furnishing, accessories, artwork, show bedspread, soft goods, tabletop lighting to create the ambiance needed for a show ready home.

Additionally, it also includes photography after staging is completed.

All the labor for design concepts, pulling inventory in our warehouse, move in, installation and inventory removal in the end, and restocking inventory are all included in the contract.

Q: What is the purpose of home staging?

A: When the home goes on the market, it becomes a product, a public space that potential buyers and buyers’ agents tour twice a week. With any product, packaging is very important. And that’s where home staging comes in.

We believe that home staging needs to be warm, welcoming, have a little personality, but not too much that it distracts the buyers during the home viewing process. Remember, buyers visit a lot of listings during their home searching period. You want to give them a great first impression so that they will fall in love with the space to make an offer.

Q: What is your design process? And your style?

A: We generally start with one main central color to create a cohesive aesthetics throughout the home. That central color is carried throughout the home, in additions to 1-2 accent colors. We believe in less is more when it comes to styling, since it’s all about the space, not the stuff! We believe staging needs to look good enough to be inviting and welcoming, but bland enough to look past of the stuff to feature the space.

This is why most of our furniture has fairly simple shapes and lines. Then we add on personality and pops of colors, as well as introducing textures through layering artwork, soft goods and home accessories.

Q: What if I want to stage the home myself?

A: Of course! You should do what you feel best for your sale. We can do as little or as much as you would like. We can help buy walking you through the property to provide you with a list of to-dos to get your listing ready for sale. The Walk and Talk session is priced at $150 for an 1-hour session. We had helped many sellers to stage their own homes successfully. We can also perform this service virtually at $100 for an 1-hour session.

If you decided it became too much and you are overwhelmed, you can always hire us to take care of everything for you.

Home Seller, Kim H.

I found Cindy thru Yelp and went thru her website. Reviews were good so I called and made an appt. She was so friendly and timely with all apps from initial meeting to moving in and out. Cindy listened to our needs. We had a condo that needed to be sold quickly. She was able to respond quickly to all emails and meet our HOA’s requirements.

When she was done staging, it was breath taking. She made it clean, modern, spacious and welcoming. Her moving crew were very efficient and mindful not to damage the walls or elevators.

I believe due to her staging, our condo sold more quickly than anticipated. Our realtor had a showing of the unit before it went on the market. He called me that night to say we got an offer ABOVE asking and all cash. He said the new owners were loving the layout and the staging.

So Thanks Cindy for your amazing work. If your looking for a stager, staged4more is the one you want.

Danielle P., Home Seller

Cindy did an excellent job staging our home on short notice. Our home looked beautiful and sold after only one open house. Cindy was a total professional and easy to work with, and her fee was very reasonable.


Home Seller, Jeff T.

We were referred to Cindy from a friend, who gave a glowing recommendation. My wife and I can easily say the Cindy and her team exceeded every expectation we had.

We had Cindy stage our loft in SOMA and she began with a vacant property.  Lofts are hard for a buyer to walk in and visualize how all their stuff is going to fit since there is so much open space.  The furniture just fit so perfect with the space and really helped a potential buyer understand how to use the space.

Cindy and her team took care of everything.  She had the movers bring everything in and out without any damage to the loft or common areas.  Cindy was worked with us on the agreement when our initial contact ran out but were in contract.  Without Cindy's expertise and maximize the bang for the buck, I am not sure we would have sold our loft in the current housing market (Summer 2010).

Cindy was on time to every meeting, responded to every email within a reasonable time frame (usually same day), and made the experience manageable.  I have and will continue to recommend Staged 4 More to everyone who will listen!

Melinda Merrion, Brooks Street Realty

The listing sold quickly all thanks to Cindy’s genius in staging! The appraiser is having a difficult time to come with comps because the listing has sold over asking $10,000, the HIGHEST in this neighborhood! And in this market! We also received 3 offers, all thanks to Cindy and her team!

Home Seller, Maggie C.

Cindy and her staff @ Staged 4 More, are very talented people with whom I contracted with to stage our home. They staged the house working with the architecture of the 1920′s when the house was built. They knew how to emphasize the original wood molding and the coffered ceilings. Their design gave the house a very rich yet homey feeling. The furniture is upscale, elegant with clean lines as well as beautiful paintings and plants that enhanced the walls and wood. The people we spoke to were very complimentary about the affect the staging had on the house.

We had the house on the market prior for 3 months without furniture; shortly after having it staged by Cindy we received our first and final offer. I would recommend Cindy and her staff @ Staged 4 More to anyone, they understand and work well with architecture and aesthetics. This is a wonderful group of people who are true professionals and easy to work with.
Thank you guys, we all appreciate your beautiful design!

Agent, Melissa Roybal

Cindy is a wonderful Home Stager, but that is not what makes Cindy an exceptional person to work with. Cindy is punctual, amicable, creative, inventive, and flexible. She takes her business very seriously, and it shows. Her follow up is impeccable. The first time that we hired Cindy for one of our listings, the home showed so well that it was sold for $114,000 over asking price in May of this year in San Francisco.


Home Seller, H.C.

Staged4more gave us a great price for staging our home using a blend of our existing furniture and theirs, then enhancing the rooms with their own items. Cindy is very professional and helpful without putting on airs. (Another stager had given a bid but had a snooty attitude because she considered herself a “designer”) Cindy is great with keeping in contact every step of the way. She arranged for a photographer so we could post the pictures on the MLS . I didn’t recognize our house, it looked fantastic. The outcome with Staged4More was wonderful, our house never looked so good, and we sold in less than one month. Thanks Cindy and team!

Jenn Davis, Realtor - Pac Union Int'l / Christie's Great Estates

Cindy staged my client’s home. She did a wonderfully stylish job, kept within my client’s budget, and we received 3 offers on the property! My clients are thrilled!


Laura Monroe, Social Media Director at Inman News

Cindy and I connected through an online real estate network, and I had long been impressed with her insight, professionalism and personality. When the day came that I needed to find a Stager for one of my clients, she was my first choice. As expected, Cindy not only impressed me, but my client wither efficiency, eye for design, and her energy. I would recommend Cindy very highly..she is wonderful!


Victoria Mudge, Redefining Real Estate Ownership

I met Cindy at a marketing event and soon began to learn more of her work through my network as hers is as wide and as impressive as her skill set. Cindy has a calm demeanor and yet an incredible amount of energy to pull-off even the most demanding of jobs. She was great working with my high-touch clients and I would recommend her in a heartbeat!


Agents, Therese & Ed Milestone

Cindy is a fabulous stager. She is calm under pressure and works well with homesellers, gauging their needs while listening intently. She has the ability to accentuate the best features in a home and which helps sellers and real estate agents obtain top dollar. I would highly recommend Cindy Lin for your staging needs.
