Toronto Home Staging
In spite of the slow down in Toronto’s real estate market, this property that we recently staged had sold for more than $100,000 over asking in one weekend which only goes to show how important it is to properly showcase a home before listing, especially in a slow market to gain a competitive edge over other properties.
The right furniture and accessories are the key factors in creating a great first impression. By using the right pieces, the function of a room is clear and defined, and a well thought of accessories gives it the wow factor and the homey feel that every buyer looks for.
Beautiful furniture that’s improperly placed will fall flat. Showcasing a room to get that wow factor often involves a few new furniture finds coupled with your existing pieces and a well-planned perspective on how to place them.
In a hot market, the right merchandising and staging will showcase your home and increase the selling price, compared to a similar home that is not staged. In a slow market, it is even more important to gain that competitive edge over other similar homes in your area. “Staging speeds up sales in a sluggish market, and can bump up prices 2% to 10% in a moderate market”.
