The Benefits Of Professional Home Staging


Staging creates the WOW factor ensuring that your home stands out against its competition from the beginning!
Why Stage?

Home staging is the final step after everything else is complete. Staging your home emphasizes its best features by maximizing furniture placement, creating great traffic flow, highlighting its architectural features and infusing the WOW factor into each and every room. The goal of staging is to make your property stand out against all other homes on the market; to appeal to the greatest number of potential buyers and get your home sold faster for the highest possible price.

Top 10 Reasons To Stage Your Home
  • Staging creates an immediate “WOW” factor by integrating design techniques that attract the broadest range of buyer and showcasing your home to its fullest potential.
  • Staging maximizes your buyer pool by appealing to the broadest market and attracting the widest range of perspective buyer.
  • Staging brings an objective opinion, helping homeowners to see their property through fresh eyes, opening up new possibilities to maximize the value in their home and potentially adding thousands of dollars of equity.
  • Staging brings the expertise of a design professional to the process, helping homeowners make the biggest impact for the least investment, avoiding costly mistakes that homeowners may make on their own.
  • Staging makes your home stand out against the competition and increases its perceived value. “98% of the houses staged have sold over the asking price” HGTV’s Designed to Sell.
  • Staged homes sell faster, minimizing the number of days your home is on the market. A recent RESA study showed that "Vacant houses sold 85% faster after staging, and occupied homes sold 89% faster".
  • Staged homes have a lifestyle and an ambience that allows buyers to immediately envision themselves living in the space and make an emotional connection to the home.
  • Staged homes provide exceptional photographs for outstanding virtual tours. With 95% of buyers browsing online first, photographs are a critical marketing tool to make a great first impression to perspective buyers.
  • Staging professionals have a multitude of resources at their fingertips and a network of professionals such as painters, contractors, cleaners, movers, landscapers and more that clients can benefit from.
  • Staging professionals have an established relationship with local retailers. This means that they can pass along discounts on everything from paint to flooring and more to their clients.
David’s Staging Process

David’s commitment is to provide the highest level of customer experience possible. David and his team offer a free home staging consultation to each of their clients. David works with professional home staging experts to assist his clients in transforming their homes and has developed a home staging process that unfolds in three steps:

Free Consultation and Detailed Staging Report

A home staging professional will meet with you, free of charge, to assess and evaluate your home. This consultation includes a priority checklist of what will need to be completed prior to putting your home on the market; a customized colour and design plan and recommendations on how to best showcase your property. They will also suggest repairs if required and provide a detailed plan of what will need to be pre-packed, moved or replaced. The staging professional will customize an action plan for the homeowner to implement, or the staging professional can be hired to handle all aspects of getting your property ready for sale. Staging professionals offer many flexible packages and will work within your budget. All costs are provided with the consultation report to allow the homeowner to make informed decisions.

Staging Preparation

This is the timeframe between the consultation meeting and the actual staging of your home. This allows for the homeowner to complete the necessary changes to make their home "market ready” prior to staging. This step must be completed before staging takes place.

Staging Your Home

Staging is the last step prior to listing your home for sale and is arranged just prior to photos being taken. Your professional home stager will arrange for delivery of all rental furniture, art and accessories to arrive at your home the morning of staging day. Your home stager will transform your property to its fullest potential ensuring your home stands out against competitive homes in your neighbourhood; attracts the broadest range of buyer possible and gets your home sold quickly for the highest possible price.

Dark, cluttered spaces with no definition are uninviting and confusing to potential buyers.

SOLUTION

By removing the clutter and adding additional furniture, art and accessories buyers can envision themselves living within the space.

PROBLEM

This room has been de-cluttered and has the right furniture but has not been staged.

SOLUTION

The same room now staged with great furniture placement, art and additional lighting is now WOW-worthy.

PROBLEM

Master bedrooms are key rooms in any home. This master bedroom has been de-cluttered too much and has no personality left.

SOLUTION

Focusing attention on the key areas in a room with artwork, accents, lighting and colour creates visual interest in any space.

PROBLEM

Kitchens sell homes! Clutter, outdated fixtures and lack of modern design appeal will make your home less valuable in the eyes of potential buyers.

SOLUTION

Buyers want updated properties and will pay more for a home in turn key condition.

PROBLEM

Bathrooms are the second most important rooms in your home. This bathroom feels cold, outdated and uninviting.

SOLUTION

By dressing the room with new hand towels, removing the toilet cover and the rug, adding a picture and a vase and turning on the light, this bathroom is transformed into a beautiful, inviting, modern, bright space.
