Home staging in Toronto and Vaughan we are asked this question at least once per week by sellers. The seller invested in a larger home to take advantage of rising home prices in our area and just never got around to buying furniture to fill the house.
The only problem with this line of thinking is that buyers cannot imagine how they would fit their dining room set in a particular home.
Buyers are quite often out of town or the country in our area. They rely heavily on the listing photos as their first impression in regards to whether the house will suit their needs.
We suggest that the seller invest in renting furniture for the dining room so that buyers are not left scratching their head and passing on putting a property on their "must see list" and click through to the next listing. More than 90% of buyers look online for their next home... it just makes sense to show buyers what they are looking for.
Here are a few examples of dining rooms after we have staged them...
Modern, clean lined furniture was rented along with artwork and accessories to create a welcoming ambiance.
In this property we rented a dining table and chairs and installed artwork from another property that the seller owned..
Whether the home is modern or traditional in appearance, the one thing most people do when they buy a new home is invite friends and family out to see the new place.
These examples show clearly the benefit of staging a dining room so that buyers can see how they could entertain their family and friends with ease.
If you have vacant property that could use rental furniture to get listing photos that create a great first impression call us today.
