REMEMBERING THE JOY OF STAGING

Every once in a while we get a project that we truly love.  And it’s not because of how we showed off our luxury pillow collection or stunning artwork.  And it’s not because it was the perfect property to highlight our love of modern design.  It’s one of those projects that reminds us of why we got into this business in the first place….to help people. Mike & Libby have lived in their home in North York for 42 years and raised 2 sons who now live in the west end.  They purchased a property in Oakville to be closer to them when...

CONVERTING THE CRITICS …

In 11 years of working in this industry we have come across every critic imaginable.  When you start in a new industry you can expect a lot of flack as most people will question the value of what you do and continuously ask the question:“IS IT WORTH IT?”   Here, at Toronto Condo Staging & Design, we have worked very hard over the last decade to prove to the GTA (we haven’t tackled the world yet), that YES, staging works.   Even after all the media coverage that home staging has received in recent years we still run into...

VICTORY LOFT SUCCESS …

We have staged a number of loft conversions over the years, but one of our favorites has to be the church conversion at 152 Annette, Victory Lofts.   We have staged several units for the builder and several more investor units, but the highlight was one of the larger, top floor units we did this year.  With incredible exposed beams and spectacular light, this unit was a pleasure to stage. One of this issues that loft conversions have is showing potential purchasers how to use the space effectively.  This unit was a perfect...

We have the unique opportunity of seeing all kinds of properties across the GTA and every once in a while we come across a real “diamond in the rough”.  Huge potential, just in need of some TLC.  Our project at 30 Glen Elm was one of those.  With the sizes of condos getting smaller and smaller, the condos in some of the older buildings really start to look appealing.  Based on size alone, this one was a beauty!   As with many of the units in these older buildings, it needed some updating. New kitchen, new paint, new lights and...

Staged homes sell 2–3 times faster and for up to 6% more than unstaged ones.  People perceive staged units that are well decorated as being worth more. Professional stagers know how to highlight the features of the unit and distract from any ‘not so desirable’ features. • It’s extremely important to show people how they can use the space, and this is especially so in properties that are small or have unique layouts.• It’s all about the marketing! Marketing is not just how the realtor describes the unit on the MLS, it’s...

Posted by on March 5, 2013 in Blog, Staging Blog | 0 comments

We know that when you are selling, you are trying to watch your budget.  You have to decide what fix ups you need to do and what can be left to the new owners.  There are certain things though, that will actually bring you MORE money, if you invest a little now.  Your flooring is a main area that always increases the value of a home! It will ALWAYS cost you less to replace worn carpet or add new flooring than to leave it to the new homeowners. Most purchasers are looking for reasons to discount their offers.  Flooring is one of the...
