Whoa!!! I can hear you disagreeing all the way up here in snowy Toronto. I have heard many a real estate sales person and home owner express this sentiment. The problem with leaving a home or a room vacant is that the buyer cannot identify what the purpose of the room might be or whether their furniture will fit in the space. The buyer needs something in the room to make a comparison to.
For instance, when a dining room has a table set in it the buyer will be thinking ..."My table is a little longer than this one so mine will fit here no problem". You get the buyer seeing themselves living in the home.
Advantage Staging will rent a dining room table set to you for a very reasonable fee or you can do as my client did. They had lived in the house for 5 years without ever having purchased a dining room set. I suggested that they borrow one as they had no budget to rent one. Well they did one better than that.
When they bought their new home, they asked the homeowner if they could "borrow" their dining room set to put in their home to get it sold. The person that they bought the home from said of course and actually delivered it to the family. Will wonders never cease.... their house sold in 5 days!
Another home staging success story in Vaughan. If you need help getting your property ready for sale contact Michelle to get your listing "move in ready".
Here are a couple of examples that illustrate why you would want to stage a vacant home.
Which room in the house is this? After staging there is no doubt. It is a bedroom and a very nice one at that.
This bedroom looks too small...... or does it look just right?
When you want to prepare your property for sale, call Michelle at Advantage Staging to produce that "just move in" look that buyers are looking for.
