When putting a property on the market to sell, the goal is always to see a home sold at, or above, the asking price and quickly.  Of course this is not always the case as real estate fluctuates and often, the tastes of the home owner, do not reflect those of the average buyer.  In today’s market, the benefits of staging a home for re-sale far outweigh trying to save money on a listing.

Staging a condo or home, despite the cost, will often help an owner up-sell their property.  On average, an empty condo will cost approximately $3,500 to stage, a minimal cost compared to reducing a listing in order to attract potential buyers.  This is a cost that is well worth it when a property may sit on the market for months, empty, eating up mortgage payments and possible strata fees, only to eventually sell below the original asking price.  Often prices are reduced by a minimum of $5000, if not more, in order to move a piece of real estate.  Staging gives potential buyers a chance to see the possibilities within a home. Not only does it make spaces look beautifully lived in, staging often makes rooms look bigger, warmer and more inviting, providing a landscape to build future dreams on.   Providing a home that appeals across cultures and ages allows potential buyers a chance to imagine themselves building a life and creating memories there.   Presenting a home, rather than just a space, helps sellers walk away satisfied that they have seen the best possible return on their investment.
