What’s Hot in Home Staging Services?

February 06, 2016 (posted by Jennifer Campbell, Home Staging Calgary)

Getting ready to sell your furnished house or condo and wondering what home staging services are most popular? In Calgary, consultations are hot. That’s because it’s hard to beat the return on investment of hiring a professional home stager to give you specific room-by-room advice so your listing stands out from the competition for a quicker sale. And of course, if you need help with the staging advice, we are here to help!

After home staging: Staging an entryway is a nice introduction to the home and sets the tone for a cozy, family friendly house.

It’s surprising how much impact small changes create. Remember, when you’re preparing your home for sale, it’s not about what YOU like anymore. It’s about what YOUR potential buyers want.

People viewing your listing for the first time may not look at every single detail with a critical eye. But humans have an uncanny ability to notice things that don’t seem “right”. These inconsistencies can create a disconnect – all of a sudden, the buyer shifts from seeing with her/his heart to becoming analytical.

When that happens, their first impression changes and you’re more likely to lose them. The power of staging services is that they help potential buyers decide with their hearts.

Here are some examples of simple changes our Calgary clients made after hiring Set Your Stage for home staging consultations:

  • Valley Ridge: Bedding swap from red to neutral appeals to more buyers.
  • Prominence Patterson: Simple accessories add life to a space.
  • Midnapore: Swap furniture between rooms to create more flow.
  • Tuscany: I love glass tables. But in this room, it made more sense to swap it out for a more rustic look.
  • New Brighton: All it took was a simple bedding swap to a duvet that properly fit the bed for this room to feel more appealing.
  • West Springs: Accessories, art, and a bench create a grounded feeling in this entry.


Professional staging services don’t have to break your budget. That’s part of the reason why staging consultations are so hot in Calgary real estate.
