Six Elements creates new possibilities for you— because of the money-making power of real estate when it is combined with home staging, and the transformational effect of living in a home that is decorated and arranged to suit your lifestyle.
We are not real estate agents and we are not interior designers. As home stagers, we do not believe in buying things for the sake of having what’s “in” this year because we’ve seen too many homeowners buried in “stuff” they don’t need and don’t like.
Six Elements Inc. offers a range of services to help you no matter where you live.
Home Staging – How to get the most money for your home
Home Staging (or House Fluffing as it’s also called) helps your home sell more quickly and for more money whether you are in a slow or hot real estate market, because when you decorate or stage a home to appeal to potential buyers, you have a hotter property to sell.
In a slow real estate market where prices may be going down and new competition is coming onto the market every day, time is money to you as a home seller.
You can’t afford to miss the season and have your home sit on the market for 6 months or more. Plus there’s the “opportunity cost” of hanging onto a home longer than you want to.
Opportunity cost includes the tangible things like mortgage costs, property tax and insurance. But there are intangible costs too; like wasting time commuting to your new job that is farther away, not being able to send your kids to a better school until you move to a different neighborhood, trying to keep your house showing-ready when you’ve got kids and pets and a full-time job, or being stuck in a house with your “ex” while you wait for that sale so you can finally go your separate ways!
Using home staging strategies and techniques we have helped clients out of all these situations and more by decorating their homes to sell faster, often saving them from the costly listing price reductions their real estate agent is pushing for.
In a hot real estate market where listings tend to sell quickly, home staging still gives you a distinct advantage. Obviously, the more buyers you have competing for your property, the higher the final selling price as each prospective buyer tries to outbid the others.
Not everything sells even in a hot market.
There are always those properties that seem to languish forgotten month after month. Eventually everyone avoids going to see them, assuming there is something terribly wrong with the house for it not to have sold more quickly.
Debra Gould’s clients generally sell in days and earn a $10,000 to $70,000 profit on her services by allowing the Six Elements team to transform their homes.
Imagine the possibilities such a cash windfall and faster sale could create in your life!
We offer in-home staging services in the Toronto area, and virtual staging services across North America, providing you with advice by phone based on photos you provide.

Interior ReDesign – How to make your home work better for you
Imagine, if you could live in a home you felt happy, relaxed and comfortable in. Would it change the way you’re living?
Six Elements Rooms by Design™ service helps you focus on what you really want from your home, how you want to live and how you want to feel.
We usually use what you already own in new ways, and where appropriate we’ll make recommendations for the right ingredients to add. We don’t believe in homes looking “decorator done” because that often leaves homeowners feeling like they are playing house in a home that belongs to someone else.
Debra Gould often refers to herself as “providing decorating help for people who would never hire decorators”.
