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

All I did was... give the buyer a way to connect with a property

Staging in Vaughan and the Toronto GTA we are asked quite frequently if it is really worth it to stage a vacant home.

Home owners and agents alike ask why isn't it better to show a home vacant, doesn't it show buyers how much room there is in a home.

We know from experience that buyers have a hard time envisioning the following...will my furniture fit in here or how would I set up my furniture in this room.

In this home the first thing we asked the home owner to do was remove the office blinds in every room. Then we asked that the walls be painted a lighter neutral colour that buyers would love.

Buyers give an agent a list of things they want however they typically buy on emotion every time. 

Buyers will say they "knew" as soon as they saw the house they knew it would be their new home.

All I did in this home was stage 3 rooms to show buyers how they could live in this home. 

The dining room before staging was not inviting, after staging the room shows buyers how they could entertain in the space.

Dining Room After with table, chairs, artwork, decor and office blinds removed.

The room is brighter, feels roomier and inviting.

In our area dark kitchen cabinets are not a popular option so this set up created an updated look that buyers would like. 

This home is now staged and SOLD!
