Staged in 24 hours, SOLD in 3 days, 23 offers and 100K over list.... another staging success story.

By
Home Stager with in Vaughan and Toronto GTA

Home staging in Vaughan Advantage Staging is quite often called in to put  the final touches in place to prepare a home for listing photos. Vaughan is home to many show stopping homes which benefit by having the rooms "faced" for the camera.

I was contacted by an agent to provide that servcie as well as stage two vacant rooms. The front living room and the dining room were vacant. Not a good thing when they are the first rooms that a buyer sees upon entering the home. All I did in this home was rent furniture for the living room and dining room and provide the artwork and accessories.

Buyers make up their mind about purchasing a home within seconds of entering so it was critical to have these rooms staged to create desire on the part of the buyer.

Luckily, their agent arranged to have me stage the property within 24 hours. The home sold within 3 days for 100K over list. 23 offers were on the table. They had to have parking control in the brokerage parking lot and conference rooms.  Can  you imagine the excitement that was generated with this listing. It was the talk of the office for days afterward.

Investment, minimal.

Impact, priceless.

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

If you have a vacant listing could benefit by being staged to create desire on the part of the buyer to put in an offer contact Advantage Staging to create the look to attract your target market.

HI Sharon, it sure was! 23 offers was a record in our office. 10 happens frequently, but 23 was an all time high. Thanks for stopping in to read about this extraordinary staging job.

Wow, Michelle you really "showed them" that home staging works.  Agents in your area should be believers after this one.  Nice job!

HI Michelle, quite a few of the agents in the office have come to speak with me after this staged home sold. They want to know if I think staging would work for their listing. Hard to believe, but many agents are still sitting on the fence when it comes to staging their listings. I really don't know what else we can do as professional stagers to convince an agent to suggest staging to their listing clients. With results like these, it could be used as a tool in the marketing of their listings.

hi Michelle ~ don't know how this post got by me before -- it's an outstanding example of what professional home staging can do to propel a listiing's prominence!  The fact that it sold for FAR ABOVE the list price with 23 offers is proof positive of the powerful benefits of home staging. 

HELLO -- are you sellers and agents listening?  If you're near Vaughn or Woodbridge, Ontario -- give Michelle at Advantage Staging a call!!

Well Maureen...thank you for the huge shout out to the agents here in Vaughan!!!  I am speaking to a seminar of new agents joining the brokerage tomorrow. This story is definitely at the top of my list. Best to get them marketing their homes in a way that buyers respond to right from the start of their career.
