Staging in Vaughan and Toronto GTA we have many clients selling their homes that also own a business.

We stage for their business  when they are producing new marketing materials online or in print.

Here are a few examples of creative staging for a wood flooring company that wanted to promote their new line of custom flooring. 

The first picture shows the loft room in the barn on the property where they produce the wood flooring being prepared for the photo shoot.

The last picture shows the final result in a marketing brochure.

If you know a business that requires staging for their products give us a call at 416.928.2999

Staging in Vaughan and Toronto we generally suggest to stage the five principle rooms in a home.

They would be the living room, family room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom.

We stage the foyer and bathrooms at no additional charge as an incentive to sellers to stage a second bedroom.

We find if you stage an additional bedroom it adds to the emotional buy in by the potential buyers.

We can present one more touch point for them to commit to a home. 

Budgets are usually tight when it comes to staging a home as sellers can't understand how important it is to invest in the lifestyle of their home compared to other homes for sale on the market.

Here are some examples of second bedrooms we have staged and they absolutely added to the value the buyers saw in the home versus others for sale. 

Each of these additionally staged rooms added some abience to the home that would encourage a buyer to make an offer. The sellers and the agents all commented on what a great "feel" the staging brought to the room vs how they looked previously. All homes sold within days.

If you have a property you are looking to have marketed to attract your ideal buyers call the Go To Girl around town.

All I did was....Home Staging Success St.. by Michelle Finnamore, Preparing Your .. - 4M ago

Staging in Vaughan and King area and into Toronto we can be asked to market anything from a luxury home to a horse farm to a log home. 

We must come up with looks that will attract your ideal buyers online and convince them to visit your listing to see the house in person. 

Buyers generally have a list of "must have" items but we find most people still buy on emotion. They will often comment they knew the house for them as soon as they entered the property. 

Here are a couple examples of the looks we can create to attract your ideal buyers for a luxury home.

 

We create unique foyers to create an impression with buyers when they first enter. If you have a listing you want to draw attention to call the Go To Girl Around Town.

We have found staging in Vaughan and the Toronto GTA area we are using more colour than neutral colours in our staging work for the last year.

There is a trend for "maximilism" in our area and buyers see it every day in design magazines as well as on TV shows like The Marilyn Denis Show and Cityline. 

With our exceptionally grey winters we are finding buyers are quite receiptive to a more colourful look as long as it is curated well and not overwhelming the room. 

We still advise neutral wall colours like OC 27 Balboa Mist so buyers can move right in. But we find it is the use of colour that gets them excited to consider there and putting in an offer.

Below are two examples- one home staged with colour and one with a neutral palette.  They are a good comparison as these new builds were sitting side by side. Only the use of colour is changed in the living rooms. 

There are buyers attracted to both looks. Which look is the winner in your area?

When you have a property to be marketed to attract your ideal buyers call the Go To Girl around town.

Staging in Vaughan and the Toronto GTA we are asked quite frequently if it is really worth it to stage a vacant home.

Home owners and agents alike ask why isn't it better to show a home vacant, doesn't it show buyers how much room there is in a home.

We know from experience that buyers have a hard time envisioning the following...will my furniture fit in here or how would I set up my furniture in this room.

In this home the first thing we asked the home owner to do was remove the office blinds in every room. Then we asked that the walls be painted a lighter neutral colour that buyers would love.

Buyers give an agent a list of things they want however they typically buy on emotion every time. 

Buyers will say they "knew" as soon as they saw the house they knew it would be their new home.

All I did in this home was stage 3 rooms to show buyers how they could live in this home. 

The dining room before staging was not inviting, after staging the room shows buyers how they could entertain in the space.

Dining Room Before with no furniture, artwork or decor, office blinds installed

 

Dining Room After with table, chairs, artwork, decor and office blinds removed.

The room is brighter, feels roomier and inviting.


Living Room Before vacant with office blinds. 

Living Room staged with sectional for large gatherings, artwork, decor and no office blinds.

The room now feels inviting and spacious.

Kitchen Eating Area Before with furniture that did not blend well with the dark kitchen cabinets.

Kitchen Eating Area staged with furniture and artwork to blend with the dark kitchen cabinets.

In our area dark kitchen cabinets are not a popular option so this set up created an updated look that buyers would like. 

This home is now staged and SOLD!

If you have a property that requires staging to market it to attract your ideal buyers call the Go To Girl around town. Get results and get your property sold!

Staging in Vaughan and Toronto GTA we come across our fair share of homes that need to declutter and pack up quite a bit to prepare their property for listing photos.

Buyers are moving as they need more space or they are downsizing and are trying to figure out where they will put all their stuff when they move.

This is why it is so important to pack up what you don't need in the next 60-90 days.

You need to show space and look move in ready.

 We recently teamed up with Second Closet to assist our clients with this part of preparing their home for sale.

 

Second Closet will get a quote to them within 30 minutes.

Next they deliver plastic bins with lids, packing material, tape...whatever supplies they may need to pack.

The client packs up the items  not needed.

Second Closet takes the bins away to their level 4 secure warehousing site.

The client uses an app to record digitally what goes in each bin in case the home owner needs to retrieve something before they move (how convenient is that!)

When the client move into their new home Second Closet will deliver the bins to their new home for unpacking by the home owner.

When you need a plan to prepare your home for sale call the Go to Girl around town.

We create a focused plan for you to follow and look fabulous for listing photos.

Investment, minimal.

Impact, priceless.

Staging in Vaughan and the Toronto GTA area we don't typically stage dining tables with complete table settings as most people never use their dining room except at holiday time.

We will stage with a simple table decor like these table settings to create a warm and inviting ambiance in a room...

What do you find is the norm in your area?

Do you set the table with place mats, dishes, glasses, silverware, napkins etc.?

Or do you find a simple, warm and inviting vignette sets the stage to attract your ideal buyers online?

When you are looking to prepare your listing to attract buyers online call the Go To Girl around town.

We are so lucky to work from downtown Toronto in modern condos to the small towns like Alliston and Thornton with beautiful character Victorian homes.
We provided a staging consultation at 10 Robert Street in Thornton and the home owner carried out the suggestions perfectly.

Staging is about evoking an emotional attachment with a home.

Buyers will always provide a list of wants but typically they buy with their hearts.

A home is an emotional buy, you will hear a buyer say they knew it was the house for them as soon as they walked in the door.

We like to create a look that you would see on Pinterest, in a country living design magazine or on one the many shows that flip older homes. Buyers typically connect with a home that shows them the lifestyle they are looking for.


If you are looking to move to a small village that is within walking distance of not one but TWO ice cream parlours plus a short drive away to the city of Barrie this home is for you. A bit of both worlds to suit the lifestyle many buyers are looking for today.

Plus the rear deck is a place for a buyer to imagine inviting family and friends over for a summer get together. Show a buyer the lifestyle of living in a home and the home is sold.

When you are looking for a stager that will create the right look to attract  your target market call the Go To Girl around town.

Staging in Vaughan and the Toronto GTA we come across our fair share of homes that have an old piano where  the sellers don't know what to do with it.

Either the piano hasn't been played in years and is there for sentimental reasons only or it is played but it really could use a style update to fit in to the design look of today.

Here is a super idea we suggest to the sellers if they are not donating it or selling it before the house goes on the market. We prefer to show space in a room to potential buyers but you are going to love the transformation a bit of chalk paint can provide.

Chalk paint is easy to use, you don't need to sand the furniture first. Afterward seal it with a rub of bees wax or a coat of linseed oil.

This piano was featured in Style at Home Magazine and shows how updated a piano can look.

The little white fur rug added to the bench for a soft landing is sold at your local Walmart or Homesense.

When you are staging a home that needs creative ideas on how to present an updated look to your target buyers call the Go To Girl around town to stage your property.

Investment, minimal.

Impact, priceless.

Staging in the Vaughan and Toronto GTA area we come across the issue of scratched wood floors quite frequently.  Wood floors are the most popular flooring choice with home owners and they are hard to keep looking in good condition with daily living.

We have found the pack of 3 furniture markets from a dollar store do a wonderful job of making the floors look good. The pack comes in light, medium and dark colours to suit most floors.

Check out these results on one of our latest staging jobs.

 

 

Unfortunately they don't have a gray marker yet but we use a piece of walnut to fix those floors. Just rub the walnut piece over the damage and scrape off excess walnut with a credit card. A quick fix that works wonders.

If you have a property for sale call the Go To Girl around town to prepare your listing to attract your ideal buyers online.
