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

When you only have two days to list, this is what can happen.

Recently Advantage Staging provided a home staging consultation in Vaughan that was your typical family home. A busy family with no time to prepare their home for sale.

Or so they thought.

Advantage Staging arrived to do the consult, left a written, detailed, room by room action plan with the family so that they would know what to do to get the property ready to be staged for sale. With precious little free time a seller needs the confidence that a focused, written plan can give them to complete the job in a short amount of time.

The living room was originally minty green and the home owner didn't want to paint. Sellers are always reluctant to paint as they are moving and think that the buyers can overlook their choice of colour. I assured the seller that a neutral colour like CC 110 Muslin by Benjamin Moore was a wise choice as it would allow buyers to move in and not have to do anything before the holidays.

Paint is always the one thing a seller a can do for minimal investment that will have the largest impact with buyers. Paint creates a neutral pallette and a clean, fresh look.

Our team arrived two days later to stage the property. Rental furniture was brought in so that buyers could see how they could live in the home and our team filled in the rest of the rooms with artwork, props and accessories.

Investing the time and effort to purge by the seller and acting on the staging suggestions paid off in short order.  The property was listed November 22 and sold in two weeks. Professional home staging was a key marketing strategy to sell a property around the holiday season.

The listing photos showed a great family home that was move in ready. A buyer could move in before Christmas and enjoy their new home over the holidays.

The sellers were at work during the staging process. When they returned, here are a few images of the dramatic difference professional home staging produces in a few hours....

The lady of the house was smiling from ear to ear when she saw the results our team accomplished. She loved her house and remarked that she never imagined it could look this stylish.

Investment, minimal.

Impact, priceless.

Remember, investing in staging is always less than the first price reduction.

Advantage Staging is ready to be part of your marketing strategy today.
