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

All I did was.. add some character and warmth to a library.

Advantage Staging tries to find that one thing in every home that makes the potential buyer feel a connection to that home.

One way to to do that is to create a room that is a place to get away from everything. To create a refuge from the busy lives that we all lead today.

With that in mind, this is the result at 143 Orleans in Vaughan.

Before the room was spacious and had a work desk but the room was lacking that certain something to make you want to curl up and stay awhile.

All I did was add a chaise lounge, throw, accent cushion and an area rug to ground the vignette.

Nothing says curl up and stay awhile like a chaise lounge. Buyers loved it.  The property was sold in a few days.

Professional staging is the art of touching buyers emotionally to have them see a house as their home.

Investment, minimal.

Impact, priceless.

Remember, staging is always less than the first price reduction.
