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

All I did was change the patio set from white to black and move some plants around - patio with a view

In this example I would like to show Realtors and Homeowners the importance of Staging all the spaces in the home. If you market your outside spaces you have added additional "rooms" and square footage that your competition has ignored. 

I  swapped the locations of the two patio sets, placing the black one on the upper deck and the white in the pool area to draw your eye to that location. With the black set down below you would not have noticed it. I also removed several bird feeders as they obstructed the view to the rear of the property which was one of the main selling features of this home in Toronto.

I placed their plants from indoors outside and placed their morning tea set on the table. All items were already at the property but not placed in the best location to market the property. Buyers always have a list of all their wants, but they buy for the most part on emotion. My job as a Stager is to market the lifestyle of the property to buyers.

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

Investment, minimal.

Impact, priceless.
