All I did was....Home Staging Success Stories

All I added was an area rug, two stools, 1 picture and 2 accent cushions - living room

This before and after example is to show the average homeowner that you do not need a large budget to Stage a property for sale. Decluttering and taking your own furniture from another room and rearrange it to show the purpose of the room and how a potential buyer might use the space.

In this 10 x 17 livingroom in Barrie I created a TV viewing area, a reading nook and a small computer workspace. Three uses in what previously appeared to be a small room without a focus.

Advantage Staging will market  your property to stand out from the competition every time.

Investment, minimal.

Impact, priceless.
