What is home staging
Home Staging is the process of preparing your home for sale, using easy to follow guidelines, to put it in the best possible showing condition.

Making a good first impression on potential buyers is a must, so you have to spark immediate interest. A house that shows well will appeal to a wider range of buyers, resulting in more offers and a quicker sale. While location and market condition determine the price range of a property, how appealing it is to buyers determines where it will sit within that range. Putting your home in its bestshowing condition before it goes up for sale sets your house apart from others in the neighbourhood and allows it to be put on the market at the high end of its range.

WIth the ever increasing use of home stagers, especially in the Greater Toronto Area, it is important to stay on top of the competition. It's not just about price when you're selling your house; it's about getting an offer. Your home will fit in a price range depending on size and location, but it's not worth anything if it doesn't appeal to potential buyers.

Absolutely! Aside from reducing the number of days a home is on the market, which, of course, translates directly into money, staging actually increases the value of your home. The findings of a poll conducted by HomeGain, one of the most popular resources for real estate agents in the US, has home staging ranked as #2 on their list of home repairs with the highest return on investment.

home staging process
For the typical property, the process starts with the staging consultation, during which the homeowner receives a detailed and prioritzed report, covering everything from curb appeal, to furniture placement and minor repairs. Sometimes people opt to leave it at that and are quite successful in implementing the recommendations on their own. Others choose to lay the ground work by cleaning and organizing their home, then have staging done to give their home that finished look. Room Revival can provide you with a home staging estimate from the information gathered during the consultation; no second visit is required. For those who need a vacant home staged, Room Revival will come and view the space, take photos, measurements etc., then give an estimate to furnish and accessorize your property.

Room Revival provides home staging and interior decorating services throughout the GTA including: Central Toronto, Scarborough, Pickering/Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa, Newmarket, Richmond Hill, Thornhill, Markham, and surrounding areas.
