How to Stage a Golf Tee Off Spot in a Ravine Lot

You may be thinking by now that I like to think outside of the box and I do get some pleasure from it. This property was a simple war time house located in Scarborough and backed onto a ravine. I  suggested that we really make a point of how much fun it would be to live in the house as you could hit golf balls into the ravine anytime you wanted.

And who wouldn't like that? 

This home sold in three weeks and set the benchmark price for the neighbourhood.

Could it have been the golf tee off box?

Advantage Staging markets the features of your property every time to make it stand out from the competition.

Investment, minimal.

Impact, priecless.

Does Staging have to be modern in style every time?
