What are the advantages of Home Staging for me as a Homeowner?

·          Research shows that a staged house may sell up to 2 ˝ times faster and can add up to 7% to the selling price.

·          Houses that are staged sell for more money in a hot market, and sell faster in a slow market.  

·          A Staged home is move-in ready.

·          First home buyers have high earning potential – therefore securing a high mortgage at low rates; but often have no cash flow left for repairs.

·          It is less work that the buyers have to do when they move in, which is very attractive for young buyers as their lives tend to be very busy.

·          A Staged home is viewed as clean and well maintained.

·          By enhancing the features of a home and changing its condition, even slightly overpriced homes have a better chance for selling at asking price.

·          A Canadian Staging Professional™ can overcome differences in décor style which are often present when the average seller is 57 years old and the average buyer is 32 years old.

How can Consultanna Home Staging help me as a Real Estate Agent?

•     Suggested changes (repairs, clutter, décor and personalized items) are addressed by a Canadian Staging Professional™ who has been trained and is qualified to handle any objections the homeowner may have.

•     A Stager is a third party that will address and explain all of the sales challenges faced as a result of the condition of the home. The Real Estate Agent does not have to risk losing a listing by pointing out all the work that needs to be done. They have delegated that job to the Stager.

•     Staging changes how a house shows. When you change the condition of the home you decrease the odds of having showings with no offers. Buyers will not be turned away by the house’s appearance.

•     A Staged house makes for beautiful photos. Beautiful photos attract more buyers to showings; this means more offers and increases the opportunity to sell the listing during the first round of marketing.

•     By letting a Stager take care of making sure the house will show better, the agent can spend more time on other aspects of getting the house sold.

•     By letting a Stager take care of making sure the house will show better, the agent can spend more time working on getting more listings!!

•     A Staged home sells faster and for top dollar. Real Estate Agents receive maximum commission opportunity by not having to reduce the price and save money by not having to pay for a second and third go around in their marketing process.

•     Real Estate Agents adding Staging services as an extra value to the client can provide a competitive edge over other Agents in the area.

What is the difference between staging and decorating?

·          Decorating is for the Homeowners enjoyment - Staging is setting up the home to appeal to as many buyers as possible.

·          Decorating involves a larger budget - Staging usually has a limited budget.

·          Decorating usually means adding - Staging means reducing, neutralizing and de-cluttering.

·          Decorating involves a longer time line - In staging you work with short time-frames.

Does this mean I have poor decorating taste?
No. Your decorating taste could be excellent. The object with staging, however, is to appeal to as many buyers as possible. This means that certain elements in your house need to be changed although they might be very beautiful.

But I think my home is beautifully decorated. Why should I change it?
It may well be beautiful and appeal to everyone in your entourage, but it may not appeal to most buyers in the market today. Most buyers may not have the same interests and taste as you.

What will happen to all the things you remove when you de-clutter?
Our staff will pack your things in boxes and they will be stored in a place that we have mutually agreed upon. This could be a basement storage area, or if there is no extra storage space in your house, we could arrange temporary storage for you through our partners.
