Toronto, ON’s Realtor Home Staging Company
Also Services the Greater Toronto Area, including York Region and Beyond
A stager will go through each room in the home to assess the items that should be repaired/replaced/updated in order to make it a must-have for buyers. We will prepare a room-by-room assessment of the items that should be completed in order to get your home ready to sell. This book will be left with the homeowner to help them check off their must-do items that will make the biggest impact on potential buyers. We can also facilitate quotes for, and the completion of, home repairs, painting, etc. if required. If the home is brand new, for example a vacant condo, the consultation is not necessary.
Packing & Prep
Homeowners will receive a complete list of recommendations. Pearl Street Home Staging can help you complete these items, if time is a problem, or you can complete them at your own pace. It all depends on when you plan to list.
Once the items on your list have been completed you may wish for us to come in and help you pack up anything that can be removed while your home is on the market (for example, extra furniture, important papers, family photos). Packing can be overwhelming, especially if you’ve been in your home for many years. Having us do some of it gives the homeowner a head start once the home sells.
Vacant homes & condos:
Furniture rental will be required to make cold, empty spaces come to life. We will add art and accessories, including luxurious bedding, towels, and decor. The idea is to make your home something potential buyers aspire to. They should leave saying, “I want to live there.”
Occupied homes & condos:
We can work with your existing furniture to make sure it is enhancing your home’s best features. We can also use some of your existing pieces and mix them with rental items and our selection of art and accessories. If your home is sparsely furnished we can also bring in additional items to make the space feel more inviting. The key is to make sure your home appeals to the widest number of potential buyers.
