When you’re a home stager, you don’t have to do all the work yourself.
Especially, if you don’t enjoy some of the tasks, or you find them too physically demanding.
There’s a profit motive too.
Home staging passive income provides greater profit with less effort.
When you know what you’re doing and how to build that into your home staging business model.
Here are examples of the many ways I earn passive income as a home stager. I earn a commission from outside services like these:
- Professional organizing (I hate dealing with clutter, so I let someone else do it)
- Furniture, art and accessories rental
- Home repairs
- Packing services
- Storage facilities
- Junk removal
- Cleaning (interior, windows, carpets, exterior)
I recommend companies to provide these services and then I earn a commission on their sales.
A hundred here, $500 there, it really adds up in a year!
While the bulk of my revenue comes directly from staging clients’ homes, I love the added passive income from my various suppliers.
It’s passive income because I’m not physically doing any of the work that they’re doing.
Finding Sources for Staging Passive Income
The trick is finding the right suppliers and negotiating win/win deals with them.
Have you figured out where all these outside services will come from for your own home staging business?
If not, this is a great activity to do during slow periods, as it will boost your profits over time.
Knowing who you can call for help before you need it will reduce your stress level when you’re trying to get a house picture–perfect in record time.
You can start your research by:
- Asking friends and neighbors for referrals
- Looking at ads
- Asking community and homeowner associations
- Asking retailers that would deal with the people you’re looking for (eg: local paint stores)
- Noticing lawn signs in your area or advertising on trade vehicles
- Searching online
While it may not seem exciting to track these suppliers down, it should be a priority.

At top left is a photo of me starting a home staging consultation, which was featured on a TV news show.
I took viewers through all the steps of a home staging project or complete transformation including:
- Initial home staging consultation
- Planning and recommending the changes
- Removing old items to storage
- Bringing in rental furniture
- Finishing touches like flower arrangements on the day of the open house.
It all had to be shown over a 3- day shoot. I had pneumonia for the last two days of it. But that’s another story, the show must go on!
Home Stagers Build Your Outside Team
Being seen by clients to have a team behind you will:
