Organize Your Calgary Home Selling Team Now to List in Spring

February 16, 2014 (posted by Jennifer Campbell, Home Staging Calgary)
Spring tends to be the most popular time to list and sell a home. As you know, time flies. So give yourself time to get organized by starting now. Most people immediately think of finding a realtor when it’s time to sell. Increasingly, home stagers are included as an important part of any Calgary home selling team.
If you’re selling your home during the most popular time, you’ll have plenty of competition in terms of similar sized properties on the market. How will you make sure your home stands out?

That’s where home staging comes in. Home stagers are not decorators. They are marketers on your home selling team. And their job is to present your home in the best way to market it to your potential buyer. A home stager will select and arrange furniture and accessories in a way that speaks to the potential buyer’s ideal lifestyle. It’s about making a positive first impression and leaving nothing to the imagination.

After: This dining space is perfect for enjoying family meals or entertaining guests.

Take these rooms I staged in two different houses in Calgary. In one photo, the dining room was set up as just that; a spacious, bright and modern dining area for entertaining guests. This was in an area where young families would likely be buying.

In the other photo, we staged a large room with a fireplace as an office space. Would you have thought of doing that?

It may seem like a bold move. But the reason we did it was to market the property to the lifestyle needs of the most likely potential buyer. In this case, the very large house in an affluent area would likely be sold to professionals (entrepreneurs or flexible work situations) who tend to work often from home.
Hiring a professional home stager just makes sense when organizing your home selling team. In Calgary, Set Your Stage gets proven results for sellers.
