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

head_left_image

All I did was....stage a waterfront penthouse condo with a Vespa in the dining room!

My work is always interesting. I never know what I will be asked to stage next.

In the last two months, Advantage Staging has staged a nunnery and a concert hall that has been converted to a family home with a  horse barn. As you can see, it pays to be versatile when you are a home stager.

I was called to stage a penthouse condo on Navy Wharf in Toronto recently. The brief for the staging work outlined that under no circumstances could artwork be hung and that all the accessories has to be white. And oh yeah, there is a Vespa in the dining room. 

Hmmmm.... no artwork. How would I show the lifestyle of living in the condo. We all know artwork is a major marketing tool to create a feel to a home.  All white accessories....okay that's not an issue.  Vespa in the dining room.....now that's an creative design prop. I was getting really interested in this job now. 

This home staging at 10 Navy Wharf in Toronto is an example of how a minimal staging budget and the right  accessories can merchandise a property to the target buyers with the hand of a professional stager on the job. The condo is all about lifestyle living. It is facing the Toronto Harbour and Yacht Club, the Toronto Island Airport for easy access to and from the city, literally steps from the Entertainment district, the Roger Centre and the Air Canada Centre. The buyer of this penthouse condo lives life LARGE and enjoys the downtown life the city has to offer.

Here are the before and afters of the dining room and living room areas. This is another perfect example of how a very low budget of less than $300 can prepare your listing to appeal to your target market.
