Home staging, house fluffing and real estate merchandising as it’s also called, has a significant affect on the market value and appeal of your home. Let’s face it, being stuck with a non-selling home is no picnic! Aside from the carrying costs, your whole life is on hold waiting to see when you’ll sell and how much you will get.
When it’s time to sell what is probably your largest financial asset, why wouldn’t you do everything in your power to make sure you are presenting the most marketable product to the market?
Would you sell a used car without detailing it? Would you go on a first date without brushing your hair? No, because you know that first impressions are everything. The same logic holds true when you are selling your home and you’re competing with every other house on the real estate market in your neighborhood and price range.
Clients outside the Toronto area use home staging expert Debra Gould’s Virtual Staging Consultation service. And if you’re inside Toronto, it’s also a lower cost alternative to having an in-home visit from the Staging Diva® herself, with less wait time to get an appointment.
Whether you are struggling through a decorating project, wondering which real estate agent to work with or trying to get your house ready to go on the market, Debra Gould offers one-on-one coaching by phone anywhere in the United States and Canada at the rate of US $200 per hour.
The goal of this coaching service is to get you “unstuck”. With information, encouragement and a dose of inspiration, you’ll be able to make decisions and take action to quickly prepare your home for sale or to complete your decorating project.
There are other companies who offer “virtual staging” which is a different service where they manipulate digital photos of empty rooms on a computer, to show furniture for MLS. No actual furniture goes into the house, but they create new images of fully-furnished rooms to show online! We don’t offer that service as we believe it’s a total waste of your money because potential buyers will only be disappointed when they eventually visit your home (which they will do in 99.9% of cases) before making an offer.
While great listing photos are critical, especially when you consider that 90% of Canadian buyers and 70% of US buyers shop for a house online before ever calling a real estate agent, having great MLS shots that bear no resemblance to the actual home they will visit does more harm than good. You don’t want a prospective buyer to feel let down as soon as they enter your home! This will not put them in the mood to make an offer.
Home staging is about romancing prospective home buyers, not just in your online photos, but right through when they drive up to your home and admire the curb appeal, step through your front door and in every room until they’ve experienced the whole property!
