staging in vaughan: Should you stage all the bedrooms in a listing? - 04/04/18 07:56 AM
Staging in Vaughan and Toronto we generally suggest to stage the five principle rooms in a home.
They would be the living room, family room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom.
We stage the foyer and bathrooms at no additional charge as an incentive to sellers to stage a second bedroom.
We find if you stage an additional bedroom it adds to the emotional buy in by the potential buyers.
We can present one more touch point for them to commit to a home. 
Budgets are usually tight when it comes to staging a home as sellers can't understand how important it is to invest in … (1 comments)

Staging in Vaughan and Toronto GTA we are asked this question frequently by real estate agents and the children of the estate home in question,
Is it really worth it to stage the property or just sell it "as is" for whatever the sellers can get for it.
We ask if they want to attract their ideal buyers online with great photography of a "move in ready" home. 
Do they want a buyer to pay the highest price in the least amount of time or do they want to take what they get for it?
The answer is they want to get as much as … (8 comments)

Home Staging in Toronto GTA and Vaughan we have many opportunities to market a ravine lot to attract our ideal buyers.

I asked if his clubs were still at the house. He said he thought they might be so we … (6 comments)

staging in vaughan: All I did was... mix wood and steel to create a model home look - 08/01/16 05:46 AM
Staging in Vaughan and Toronto we create rooms that look like a magazine shot to attract our ideal target buyers.
Quite frequently the buyers love the look of the house so much they purchase the furniture we stage with as well. This is niche marketing at its best.
In this home all we did was mix wood and metal together to produce the look buyers see when they visit furniture lifestyle stores and what they see on HGTV and in magazines.

In this property we took a dated oak kitchen, revamped the layout and turned it into a dream kitchen for the new owner who loves to entertain family and guests.
This home sat on the market for over a year without a buyer. The agent that brought the buyer suggested that they call us in to give suggestions on how to update the property and build value at the same time.
All we did was remove everything from the kitchen right … (10 comments)

staging in vaughan: Rose Pink Bathroom Fixtures... see the before and after. - 07/27/14 03:43 AM
Staging in Vaughan and Toronto we come across  many properties that have the rose pink porcelain fixtures still. Buyers definitely let sellers know they are not interested in these properties by submitting low ball offers or even worse.... no offers at all.
All we did in the powder room of this property is replace the light fixture, vanity, sink and toilet for $750. We also painted the soap and glass holder white to match the perfectly good marble wall. The homeowner thought the marble wall made the bathroom looked old however, we reassured them that it was still a very current … (11 comments)

staging in vaughan: From dusty pink explosion bathroom to spa elegance... how to do it. - 05/27/11 01:48 AM
Way back in 1985 I'm pretty sure rose pink was the epitome of bathroom decor luxury.
In fact, I know I did a reno on one of my houses in that very shade of pink. Loved it at the time.
However, when you are marketing your home to buyers today they can't see the benefit of the money you invested into your bathroom in 1985. All buyers can see is dollar signs flying out of their wallet to update your home if they choose to buy it. Why not invest just a few dollars for an up to date cabinet from … (15 comments)
