Home Staging FAQs
- According to the National Association of Realtors Profile of Home Staging, nearly half of buyers’ agents believe staging a home increases the dollar value buyers are willing to offer by up to 10 percent.
- A National Association of Realtors survey found that the longer a home stays on the market, the further below list price it drops.
- A recent Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) Report found that, on average, sellers who invest in home staging before listing will sell 87% faster.
Not all homeowners have access to professional home staging or simply prefer to DIY. For those homeowners, we offer a self-paced, online course Easy DIY Home Staging for Home Sellers. We also encourage you to take a look at our book, Easy DIY Home Staging, available in paperback and e-reader versions on Amazon and Apple Books.
For in-person consultations, we generally serve the Katy, Fulshear, Cinco Ranch, Cypress, Richmond, Rosenberg, and Memorial communities, but we do see clients all across the Houston metro area based on distance and schedule availability. Properties more than 30 miles away from our office may incur an additional trip fee. See below for a general map of our service area.

We are very quick to point out to potential clients that we are insured in our business. Why does it matter?
Because…things can happen! Even with the best of intentions and proper planning accidents can happen. Part of being a professional is looking ahead in order to better serve and protect our client’s interests. Regardless of which staging service we provide you can rest assured that we’ve got you covered…literally!
When I first started my home staging business, I was hanging artwork for a client who had just purchased a home in the beautiful, upscale Rice Military District in Houston. I remarked to the client how much I liked one framed piece in particular and as it turned out...it was a Rembrandt! Signed and everything! Wow...I can't even begin to imagine how terrifying it would have been to hold this piece (let alone hang it) without insurance!
Even if you don't have a Rembrandt hanging in your living room, you do have things that are valuable to YOU. By having insurance, we are demonstrating they are valuable to us as well!
