Staging Your Home

You want to obtain the best return on your investment, you want your home to sell quickly, and for the highest price possible.

What Home Buyers Are Looking For

Buyers are looking for the best return on their investment. They want to ensure the home they are purchasing is in tip-top shape, is a good fit with their lifestyle, and suits their family needs.  Buyers need to envision themselves living in the home they are viewing.

Staging - living room

Buyers are willing to pay more for a home when they are confident they can move in without worrying about repairs or maintenance issues.

It would be very unfortunate to be presented with a request for a price reduction, off the sale price of your home, for items that could have been improved or changed.

You greatly increase the chances of selling your home quickly if you take care of these details now.


Present Your Home at Its Best

You need to attract the widest selection of potential buyers.  To do this, your home must show at its best.

This is not to say that your home is not already well decorated or well maintained. 3

How you live in your home is simply different from how you present it for sale. When you list your home, the pictures on the web should showcase a home that buyers will be eager to view.

Maximize the impact and presentation of your home for the market.  Staging your home enables you to accomplish this and delivers results.


Successful Sales

We recently assisted two home owners with preparing their homes for a successful sale.  Both homes sold – one within a week and one within a month.

What our clients are saying about Staging their home for a successful sale.

“Sharon worked with us to prepare our home for sale.  The transformation was amazing; wish we had completed the changes/improvements a long time ago!  Our house had 8 viewings and 2 offers within 5 days after listing it! We sold in under a week.  I would definitely recommend Sharon, her suggestions definitely influenced how well our home showed” Carole – Campbell River

“Sharon helped us when our house was on the market.  She was very creative with her ideas and made suggestions for what we had to do in order to make our home more appealing.  Sharon utilized what we had in our home and made recommendations for furniture placement and décor changes that cost very little.  Our home sold within a month!  We were very thankful for Sharon’s expertise and very pleased with the results.”  Mike and Alicia

Staging to Stand Out from the Crowd

7 dining roomBuyers often view multiple homes in a day.  Remembering all of the homes they view can be a challenge and often one blends into another.

You want your listing to stand out from the other homes on the market.

We recently staged a vacant home using furniture with a bold, red colour. The colour works well in this style of home and adds a dynamic element to the room.


2 Living Room

The Staging guidelines are to use neutral colours to appeal to purchasers.

Using neutral colours in this home would have been boring and would not be effective.

When done correctly, colour can appeal to a wide selection of purchasers.

The client’s comments on our Staging services and a successful sale

“Sharon’s services for interior design & staging is a key reason that my home sold in just over a month.  Her interior design ideas and professionalism are outstanding.  She transformed my vacant house into a modern and fabulous showcase looking home.  Her ideas were also implemented for the house exterior, hugely improving curb appeal. Sharon ensured the whole process of furniture delivery/set up and its removal was stress free.  I highly recommend consulting with Sharon for her services in preparing your home to be showcased at its finest for attracting potential buyers.”  G Melizza – Comox

Tweaking the set up in your home can make the difference between a home that stands out from the crowd and a home that blends into the rest of the listings on the market.

Vacant Homes

Staging your vacant home enables buyers to envision themselves living in the home they are viewing.


The empty rooms will need to be presented in a way that enables buyers to see the great features your home has to offer.

The first step is to meet with you or your agent at the vacant home.

Recommendations and arrangements are made for furniture rentals for the home.

We provide the “final touch” to stage your vacant home and maximize curb appeal. Buyers will see the great features your home has to offer.

Staging for Vacation Rentals

4097 Dining Room

Staging can be used for other applications other than home sales.

We recently assisted clients with staging their home.  They were not selling, but wanting to list their home on a house exchange site.

This is a site where home owners are looking for a trade of accommodation while on vacation.


4097 Living Room

The process involved a bit of de cluttering, effective furniture placements, and arranging items for a professional photo shoot.

We also made recommendations for additional accessories, decorative cushions, towels, and other items to help show case their home.  Shopping services were also provided to our clients.

Staging and Organizing for Absentee Owners

Perhaps you are unable to deal with the sale of your home on your own due to personal circumstances or your location. Many of you may be faced with selling your parent’s home due to a move into a senior’s complex or perhaps you have a loved one who has passed away.

Selling under these circumstance can be very stressful, particularly if you do not live in or near the home.

With this option, we offer Home Staging combined with Professional Organizing services – all bundled into one package to alleviate the stress of preparing the home for sale.  This option can also assist you to sell a home while living in a different location. You are involved through all steps of the process.

The Staging consultation is completed, you receive a written plan for approval, and you review and approve the recommendations you feel comfortable with completing. We assist with arranging for the work to be done, will ensure you receive periodic updates, and will work with your agent to ensure their advice and recommendations are taken into account. The redesign is completed to ensure the home appeals to the widest selection of perspective buyers.
