Advantage Staging is asked quite often by sellers if it is worth it to stage a vacant home. This phone call typically comes in after their home has been sitting on the market for some time with no offers. The seller has been covering the carrying costs of the home and is getting anxious that it could be another few months of expenses if they don't do something to get the property sold.
Sellers are left scratching their heads as to why their vacant home has not sold. They have created a blank slate, why they ask, are there no offers coming in? Isn't it plain to see that this is the perfect house?
When I arrive, the house is clean as a whistle, rooms appear large, nothing is in the way to distract buyers from seeing the home and its potential.
Why oh why has it not sold? They have asked their agent for feedback after showings. Nothing seems to be out of order, they just aren't getting any offers.
This is when Advantage Staging asks who the target market is and creates a look to appeal to those buyers. In this case it was in an established neighbourhood that young families were returning to live in and raise their children.
All I did in this home was create a fun, lively look that invited the buyers to see themselves settled there for years to come. A home with space for the family to enjoy time together. Now buyers can see themselves living there, how their furniture would fit in and most importantly, images that market the home on line to get buyers to put this property on their "must see list". Professional home staging creates interest and generates action on the part of buyers to put an offer in.
If you have a vacant home in Vaughan that has been sitting on the market for more days than you would like, call Advantage Staging to prepare your home for sale.
