Fabulous first impressions lead to fast homes sales - for top dollar!
Within 15 seconds of entering a home, potential buyers have already reached a decision whether a property is a serious contender. Buyers have high expectations. As a certified staging professional ™ I help homeowners maximize the perceived value of their property by showcasing its assets.

Why stage your home?

When a Realtor sends me out to stage a home, the first question the sellers usually ask is why should they invest time and money painting or upgrading light fixtures when the buyers will want to decorate it to their tastes? The reality is that today's buyers are highly selective and lead very busy lives. They don't want a renovation project. They simply want to turn the key and move in. And they are willing to pay more money for the privilege. Staged homes sell faster and for more money. In the current buyers' market in Western Quebec the average length of time to sell a home (2016) is 181 days!!! That's a frightening figure. There is a surplus of condos for sale and higher-end homes are slow to sell. Many sellers are learning the hard way that their desire to save a budget-conscious consultation fee by staging their home themselves can cost them thousands of dollars in price drops and lengthy delays in getting offers. The best strategy is to seek expert advice from an experienced stager who knows the market and can tailor a plan to best meet the seller's situation and budget--including affordable accessory and furniture rental packages.
