home staging in vaughan: Is it worth it to stage a home that is already beautifully decorated? - 06/01/14 12:30 PM
Home staging in Vaughan we get asked this question all the time.
Is it really worth it to stage a home that is beautifully decorated already? We don't want to waste your time or our client's time.
The answer is always YES.
Decorating is for the way you live.
Staging is marketing and what we do is prepare a home for listing photos. We call it "facing for the photographer". And it makes a huge difference as to how the listing photos look online.
In this home that we just staged at 112 Ivy Jay Aurora we suggested that the home owner … (4 comments)

home staging in vaughan: Why working with the right agent & stager makes all the difference - 04/06/14 06:07 AM
Home staging in Vaughan we stage over 500 homes every year. It is a very busy market.
For that reason it is in the interest of a home owner to be represented by an agent that knows when to call in the right home stager to prepare a property for listing photos.
We recently staged a home that required a a change in paint colour (you will see why in a minute), and some serious space planning done.
In this example the change in the home is dramatic. It is now bright, spacious and "move in ready".
Congratulations to Nirsh Arul … (5 comments)

home staging in vaughan: Staging an occupied home + adding a few pictures = GORGEOUS LISTING! - 02/23/14 03:24 PM
Home staging in Vaughan we are quite often hired by agents to tweak an already beautiful home. They realize that as beautiful as a home may be, it still takes the eye of a professional to face it for photography to get the show home look that buyers are looking for.
All we did in this property for sale at 57 Parisienne was add some artwork, set up a spare room as a bedroom and add a few accessories.
This listing with Dawna Borg is an outstanding family home with all the finishes you would expect in a luxury home. Dawna … (0 comments)

Home staging in Toronto and Vaughan we are asked to select paint colours for selling homes and for the new home that the seller will be moving in to. Well just how,  EXACTLY,  do we decide how to do that?

When we are at the property we see what colour cabinets and flooring they home has and which … (4 comments)

Home staging in Vaughan we come across many luxury homes that are beautiful and only need the final touches done by a professional stager to showcase the home to prospective buyers.

home staging in vaughan: All we did was...add millwork to stand out from the other homes. - 10/05/13 05:39 PM
Home staging in Vaughan our company has the opportunity to stage some truly outstanding homes.
In this property built by Arista Homes    at 50 Parisienne Vaughan ON, we suggested that the home owner add millwork so that their home would stand out from the competition in the neighbourhood. The sellers are not only competing with resales in the neighbourhood but directly with the new builds by the builder still active on the new home site.
All we did was suggest to add millwork in the dining room on the focal wall and the ceiling to create that WOW impact when buyers … (30 comments)

home staging in vaughan: Is it worth it to stage a vacant dining room? - 08/18/13 03:17 PM
Home staging in Toronto and Vaughan we are asked this question at least once per week by sellers. The seller invested in a larger home to take advantage of rising home prices in our area and just never got around to buying furniture to fill the house.
The only problem with this line of thinking is that buyers cannot imagine how they would fit their dining room set in a particular home.
Buyers are quite often out of town or the country in our area. They rely heavily on the listing photos as their first impression in regards to whether the … (74 comments)

home staging in vaughan: All I did was... reno a 1980's bathroom to look awesome! - 07/21/13 10:22 AM
Home staging in Vaughan leads our company to reno the homes that the sellers move in to after we have staged their home for sale.
In our area these types of bathrooms are ubiquitous. No one really likes them but builders keep on installing them and so our work is never done. The floor tile is installed and carried up the tub side, deck and splash area. Very utilitarian in appearance. Does the job but really, does it entice you to get in to relax?

The vanity is built in, lots of room, two sinks for a busy family. But … (11 comments)

Home Staging in Vaughan brings all sorts of properties our way to stage.  From 18,000 sq ft. mansions to country homesteads we never quite know what we will find when we arrive to do a consult.
In this country property the home owners had started to create a play room for their kids in the basement.
With the Hockey strike now over we knew what we wanted to do to capture the hearts of buyers when they came in to see this property.  With a bit of packing up by the home owner we then brought in our painter to create … (4 comments)

home staging in vaughan: Too much stuff... downsize using Transition Squad - 09/04/12 07:50 AM
Home staging in the Vaughan area does have one very time consuming challenge before we can stage the home for sale.
Garage sales are not popular in this area so almost every older home has from two to three decades of stuff in their home.
When Advantage Staging conducts a room by room consultation, I can see the home owners getting very overwhelmed with the thought of how to get the items not needed for staging out of sight so that the home appears spacious and bright for the buyers.
That's where the Transition Squad comes into play.
