In this example I would like to show Realtors and Home Owners the importance of Staging to create a visual of family time in a home. When buyers are looking on the web at the listing photos, they want to see how they could live in your property. A vacant home does not create a sense of how big a room is or how the family could envision themselves living there. The purpose of your listing photos are to gain attention, create desire and initiate immeditate action- a viewing and an offer.
In the before photo you can see the detail in the features of the room. The marble fireplace and the window trim and ceiling detail are nice, but they are also in every other listing in the area.
The after photo grabs the attention of the buyer that is clicking through listing photos every few seconds. It does this by giving them something to look at that they do not see in other listings. It draws them in to want to see more. More importantly, it gets the buyer to put your listing on their "Must See List".
All I did in this property in Thornhill was add artwork that draws the buyer's eye up to the detail in the ceiling, textured furniture to add warmth to the room and positioned the furniture to draw attention to the marble fireplace.
Advantage Staging will market your property to stand out from the competition every time.
