Buyers come in 3 packages:
A: First time buyers planning to have kids
B: Already have kids, & planning to have more
C: Empty nesters or, not planning on having kids
All of the above have one thing in common: None of
them want to pay money for what is in the before photos...
Raising children is a full time job. Who has time to redecorate? Just like you… buyers want to buy the perfect house for them. A house they think will come with a perfect life. If your house looks like the lifestyle they would like to achieve - you have got yourself a sale!
While mountains of toys across the floor become our living and family rooms, and coloring books and crayons, become our kitchens… when it’s time to sell your house it is important to know that presentation is Key.
Statistics show that it takes only 30 seconds for a buyer to know if they want to live in your house or not. From our experience, buyers are willing to pay more money for a house that is well decorated, organized and clean of clutter.

Staged Living Room in Yorkville
Home staging (also known as house staging, house fluffing or Real Estate Staging) is an art of preparing your home to perfection before it’s put on the real estate market. When done properly, it allows the seller to unlock and present the full potential of a house they wish to sell. Home staging is about creating the right emotions and atmosphere in which the buyer feels ‘at home’ the moment they walk into the property. From the seller’s point of view, home staging increases the chances of the property selling quickly for great price, sometimes considerably exceeding the asking price.

Staged Living Room
This young couple bought a new house and needed to sell this one. We came in to do the consultation and advised them to remove most of their furniture and replace with lighter, more modern items. They also had a large piano in the dining room which we strongly recommended to remove. They listened to everything we recommended and guess what? They got a great price in return.
