What’s the deal with Staging?

“You never get a Second Chance to make a First Impression”


When it comes to selling property, first impressions are everything. The way a property looks, feels, and most importantly, makes people feel will ultimately make the difference between a brief visit on a home tour and a serious offer.


The price of the property will get people looking at it initially, captivating photos and a descriptive narrative will get their attention and get people visiting, and once they discover that the photos accurately reflect the look and feel of the property, that’s when the magic happens - when casual shoppers turn into serious buyers.


That’s where staging comes in.  Staging is all about being able to anticipate what the market is looking for in a property, creating it in the truest sense possible, and putting it out there for all to see. 


My Personal Commitment to Staging your Home

As part of my continued service commitment to each of my valued clients, I include home staging service as part of my full service Premium Marketing Services with each and every one of my listings.  Please note however that, as a homeowner, your cooperation and commitment to the preparation process is expected and is an essential element of the staging process.  The more time and energy you are able to commit, the better the result and the faster the sale…it’s that simple.


Each home staging project is custom-designed to suit the very specific needs of your property. Because no two properties are alike, careful consideration is made with each property to identify what it takes to ensure that the most critical needs are being addressed first.   We will discuss your property’s needs, logistical considerations and suitable timelines before finalizing your listing.  Services offered may include a combination of professional staging consultation and setup services, rental of furnishings and accessories, cleaning and repairs.

Why do I contribute my commission to Staging?

I have seen time and again the value that staging brings to my clients.  It enables potential buyers to see the property’s true potential and helps to feed their imagination when picturing themselves living there. It provides the inspiration that people need to make the decision to take the next step.


Ultimately, it results in considerably more money for my clients, a faster sale with more desirable terms and conditions, and a strong referral source for future business.
