Staging to Move UP the Property Ladder in Calgary

July 29, 2016 (posted by Jennifer Campbell, Home Staging Calgary)

As a Calgary home staging professional, my job is to help you get your property sold quickly and for top dollar. In fact, that’s exactly what I’m doing myself as I prepare to sell my Sunnyside condo and move up the property ladder. When opportunity knocks, prepare to open the door and embrace it.

Opportunity rarely comes without risk. I work with homeowners every day who are riding the real estate roller coaster with hopes and dreams and visions of what ideal lifestyle comes next. Often, like me, that includes moving up the property ladder and investing more in real estate. Although, sometimes, selling is more about necessity than privilege.

Either way, there is plenty of emotion on this ride. I stand firmly beside my clients, supporting them to make their wishes a reality by helping them to show case their listings in a way that quickly appeals to buyers so they are inspired to say YES! Then my clients can be free to move on, just like we did. Here’s a few photos from our staged condo that sold in 29 days (average for Kensington the same time we sold was 107 days on the market)!

My own personal condo selling experience allows me to fully relate to how my clients are feeling. Change can be exciting. And it can also bring up feelings of fear and powerlessness.

The preparing to let go. The clearing out. All the work in preparation for an unknown result. The fear of nobody wanting to buy at the price you want. The frustration of living in a showable home. The worry of no offer after showings. The feeling of being in limbo in a place that no longer really looks like yours, yet you can’t move on until this one is sold.

I get it. It’s more than your largest financial investment (which is serious enough). It’s also your heart and soul. Your memories. Your hopes and dreams. Your home.

Every day as I work to support my clients in feeling more empowered by staging their home to make its best first impression, I keep this awareness top of mind and treat them with my upmost respect. This real estate roller coaster takes courage to ride. I’m here to help you succeed.
