Our recent North York home staging installation has once again proven that home staging can work wonders! This luxury property have sold at full asking price of $3.5M in less than a week! And you know you hit the bull’s eye when the buyer wants to buy the house including all the staging props!
The house was vacant which means we have to bring in all the much needed furniture and accessories to showcase the property and to make sure it shines even more! I must admit it, I was pretty excited when I first saw the house because it is not one of your ordinary homes. With its over sized glass windows and walls, it was stunning inside and out!
It features — oversized living spaces ( master bedroom’s walk in closet was almost the size of a small apartment! ), it has the latest home technology system all throughout the house, stunning architectural features, a designer kitchen, a full home theatre, full bathrooms in all 5 rooms, and the list just goes on and on!
In most cases, anything that is listed for more than $1,500,000 in Toronto stays in the market for at least 45-60 days. In fact, the listing agent and owners wanted to pay 3 months in advance for the staging services because they were expecting that this property will be seating in the market for a while, but they were wrong! And they were happy that they were!
Here’s my tip, when selling your luxury home it is best to showcase it with furniture pieces that suggests a high end lifestyle for your buyers. Make sure to come up with a space planning that works for the house. Create zones to eliminate dead space and to prevent confusion on how a specific space in the house should be used and more importantly to maximize every sq ft of the property. In the tricky space of this house, we created a lounge/receiving area to hype up impact as you enter from the main door as shown on the 3rd photo.
As they say it “time is money in real estate”. Imagine the expenses and the carrying cost of this property had it not been sold right away…
