Why is our Team Using Staging to Sell Our Listings?
Buyers (appraisers, brokers, home inspectors) only know what they see, not the way it's going to be! Right now, Staging is an emerging trend in Canada; it provides an edge over the competition. A Staged home is recognized among realtors and potential buyers as being clean and sale ready.
Statistics show that Staged properties sell faster in a slow market, and for more money in a hot market. Staging is here to stay!
What You, the Seller, Need to Know
It's Free!! In other words we have a Stager on our Team and it is included in our Services!
Staging will move you on with your life, faster. Remember the timeless statement: You never get a second chance to make a great first impression! Today's buyer is heavily influenced by first impressions.
Staging ensures positive reactions at every turn. Staging creates a series of great first impressions starting at the curb, and continuing throughout the house, motivating the buyer to linger, and move in not move on!
What Happens During a Staging Consultation?
As Staging Professionals they have your best interests in mind. They provide an objective opinion to ensure your house shows at its best.
You will receive a room-by-room, written evaluation of your house. Simple, cost-effective suggestions that will best showcase the house, not your belongings.
These may include:
1) changes of furniture placement to enhance traffic flow
2) possible reduction of personal belongings to make the home look larger
3) other suggestions for minor repairs and wall/floor covering changes. After the consultation, their services can also include (for an additional cost) packing assistance to remove or store unnecessary items, assistance with placement of furnishings and accessories, painting, flooring changes, etc.
This is a great solution if you are too busy, or unable to do the work yourself.
They can even arrange rental of furniture and accessories ,at an extra cost, if any rooms are bare or are not currently being used for their intended purpose.

Yes, But Does it Work?
