We did it again! This Richmond Hill home that we recently staged have sold for $100,000 over asking in only 4 days! Another shining example on the importance of staging and merchandising your home when it is time to sell to maximize result! We’re glad that owners followed all our suggestions and recommendations. The result was amazing!
We all love before and after shots, so I thought I would share some before and after photos of this property to give you an idea on how to create a positive impact through proper staging for you to get the best offer for your home in no time.
Start with the wall colour. Your wall colour should appeal to all buyers, and should look up to date. The original wall colour of this house was pink (all through out the main floor), the colour was juvenile, dated, and unappealing. So we decided to give it a facelift and repainted the whole house in a colour that is more current, neutral, and a colour that can open up the whole space! Also, instead of replacing the carpeting, we’ve recommended hard wood flooring to totally change the feel of the rooms.
Furniture pieces. The owners existing pieces were either too big or too small for all the rooms, so we decided to bring in some furniture pieces that works better with the space. Giving it a cleaner look, and making each room appear bigger and brighter! And since owners have also some beautiful pieces, we used it to minimize the cost of staging.
The right decor and accessories. This can make a big difference! Choosing the right art work, colour scheme, small decorative touches brings in the warmth and helps the room pop!
When staging your own home, remember that real estate staging is more than just “decorating” or “de-cluttering.” It is merchandising a home’s best features, downplaying its flaws and understanding the psychology of what makes a person fall in love with a home.
Another mission accomplished! So thrilled for our client.
