Staging is fundamental

A beautifully staged home is the foundation for every successful sale. And at Mad City Dream Homes, your professional staging consultation is free of charge. Even better, we give your home all of the time, attention and expertise it needs for a beautiful, showcase listing.

Improve your bottom line with cosmetic updates

It's usually the low-cost cosmetic updates that provide the best return on investment. Updates like paint, light fixtures, cabinet hardware, and flooring. That's why we always include a complimentary cosmetics consultation as part of your staging plan. As needed, we connect you with reputable and reasonably-priced contractors, too.

Madison WI Home Staging Tips 


Staging your Madison Area Home

Mad City Dream Homes offers four levels of staging services, depending on your specific needs. 

Staging consultation for an occupied home

Our stager and our team will tour your home with you and share our recommendations for every room in your home. In some cases our recommendations will focus on decluttering and packing away items in your home. In other cases we'll help you properly arrange your furniture, artwork, and accessories. Note: at Mad City Dream Homes your staging plan is free of charge and is included as a standard feature in your marketing plan. We give you as much time as you need with our staging team so your home shines when it hits the market. 

Professional Home Staging Consultation 

Partial staging for a vacant home

With this option, our designer and our team stage your home with our own supply of furniture, artwork, and accessories. This approach focuses on the main living spaces in your home -- the living room/family room, dining room, and kitchen. This service offers a great way to add color and life to an otherwise vacant home. The end result is better listing photos and a better first impression for buyers who tour your home.  

Partial Staging of a Vacant Home


Full staging for a vacant home

Our full-house staging takes the above option to the next level. With this option, our designer will outfit every room in your home with her own inventory of furniture, accessories and artwork. This can be a good option for a luxury home or condo listing, like the one below. 

Fully Staged Vacant Home


Virtual staging for a vacant home

Another option for a vacant home is virtual staging. With virtual staging, we digitally enhance your professional photos with furniture, accessories, and artwork. The photo below is a digitally enhanced photo from one of our recent vacant home listings.

What our clients have to say about our staging

"Shelley did an amazing job helping us get our home ready to sell. She and her staging team were phenomenal. It took a lot of pressure off of my wife since we had a newborn and a toddler to juggle while prepping the house. Shelley was also super kind and easy to work with. This is our second time working with Mad City and we can’t say enough about how awesome they are!" -- Brent 

"The Mad City Dream Homes team were on point in their communication, and their staging team did an outstanding job just working with what I had already in my home. I felt like I got the most value for my home from a trustworthy, engaged, and experienced group. Could not recommend more highly!"  -- Sam 

"Before listing it, Dan coordinated with six contractors on fairly short notice! Without Dan’s excellent relationships with those workers, I doubt they would have squeezed us into their busy schedules. We were particularly pleased with Grant Priehs, who made numerous repairs and fixture upgrades around the condo. We were impressed with the beautiful staging by Shelley Lazzareschi, who was Dan’s partner realtor on our listing." -- Brian 

"Chris Venden did a wonderful job in helping us sell our beloved home. We are very pleased with the results. Chris is wonderful to work with and she made us feel like we were her number 1 customer in all aspects of selling our home! From staging, to listing, to virtual showings, to closing, Chris was there for us, guiding us every step of the way. We can't say enough about what a positive experience we had working with Chris Venden!" -- Sally
