Why Stage With Us?

Homes staged with us sell in half the time than homes unstaged. Here are some of our most frequently asked questions.

What does the investment for home staging look like?

Our average home staging investment is around .5% – 1.5% of the total listing price of the home. At K. Donavan, we use a proprietary formula to calculate the amount of furniture and accessories your home will use so you never pay more then you need to.

What is your evidence of success?

K. Donavan has staged more homes then any other company in the Reno/Tahoe area and is reviewed by more REALTORS® and homeowners than anyone else. On average, home staged by us sell in half the time of those unstaged.

How does the staging process work?

Each project starts with a phone consultation where we go over your initial needs. Next we schedule a time to see your home to take photos and measurements. Shortly after that we’ll provide a quote for your review.

Do you stage vacant homes?

Yes! Our warehouse of furniture, accessories, linen and artwork allows us to stage vacant homes quickly.

Do you stage occupied homes?

Yes! Our team of home stagers can help homeowners and REALTORS® prepare their home to list. We help with furniture placement, decluttering and even professional photography.

Where do you source your furniture and  accessories?

We have relationships with many national suppliers and local stores. You can find items from popular stores like West Elm, Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel, Z Gallerie and many more in our projects. We use only high quality, high end furniture and accessories.

How does payment work?

We accept all major credit cards, bank transfers and checks. We also have an option to pay at close, subject to third party credit approval.

Can you help me decorate or choose furniture?

Yes. We’ve helped many clients make finishing touches to their home. By hiring us, you get access to our exclusive designer discounts and exclusive service.

“When I got this listing in December the home had been on the market for over a year. Location was bit of a challenge but I have no idea why else this home was on the market for that long. I had my stager, K. Donavan, come in who transformed this home for the modern buyer to envision living in this space and we were under contract within two months!”

They transformed my vacant and furniture-less listing into a warm and inviting home.  I really appreciated their attention to detail and level of service.  They handled everything for me — from delivering and placing the furniture and pieces, to contacting and coordinating directly with the home seller.  K. Donavan Staging made the entire process a breeze.  I highly recommend their services and will be using them again.”

Nicolle Gust

“I was the listing agent on a home that showed its age and it was not making the desired impression on prospective buyers. I contacted Mike and he immediately paid a visit to the house and gave me a very reasonable estimate for adding some warming touches. The staging was done very quickly and the items Mike selected truly provided the necessary “eye candy” for the house to receive much better feedback.  Very shortly thereafter, the home was in contract. I was completely impressed with my experience with Mike Siva and the crew at K. Donavan Staging and would highly recommend them for easy, affordable, no hassle staging help.”
