Being a home stager in Vaughan can be very rewarding when working with sellers that originally cannot see the value in staging their home for sale. I explain that staging allows buyers to see that the value in the home matches the asking price. You can have the most beautiful house in the neighbourhood but unless the buyers can clearly see that value they will typically go on to look at other listings.
Staging allows buyers to see extra value in a home by creating a purpose in a room or by allowing the room to flow and appear more spacious.
All I did in this home was show the seller photographs of the existing rooms before I started staging and then after I finished staging. Her exact words were " I can't believe my rooms looked like that before, I never noticed".
It's a common reaction in buyers when they see their home staged for sale. Most people really don't see their home like others do. They come in each day and everything looks fine to them.
I'm sure if you took a picture of your own home, you might scratch your head and wonder why you never noticed how cluttered it was, how dark the room colour was, how furniture was misplaced in a room making it feel crowded or difficult to manuouver through, the drapery was crooked or the artwork was not level.
Here are a few before and after images to illustrate why professional home staging encourages buyers to look at your listing photos on line and making the decision to put your home on their must see list.
Living Room before and after
Before and After Kitchen and Family Room
This property was missing a great opportunity to show how you could entertain family and friends with room to spare. Renting furniture that was the correct scale for the open concept rooms was key to showcasing the space in this home.
Master bedroom and secondbedroom before and after
I use snowboards for headboards quite often. It gives a teenage room a great look and markets the opportunity of living in the area and enjoying the outdoor attractions.
These rooms now appear much more inviting and show the lifestyle of living in the home.
