What is Home Staging?
Home Staging is the act of preparing a private residence for sale in the real estate marketplace. Staging is the art and science of selecting the right furniture and accessories that will highlight the homes best features. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money. Staging techniques focus on improving a property’s appeal by transforming it into a welcoming, attractive product that anyone might want. You only get one chance to make a first impression!
Top 3 reasons to stage your home:
Staging showcases the homes greatest potential. Only 10% of homebuyers can envision how their own personal belongings can work in a space. Staged homes provide beautiful photos. Consumers are savvy and most of them start their search on the internet and those photos become their first impression.
Staging allows buyers to mentally move in. When a house is staged, it allows potential buyers to imagine themselves living there. This results in creating emotional attachment for a buyer.
Staging sell homes faster and for more money. Staging your home will gain a 400% return on investment. When you stage you are marketing your home as a product. Creating mass appeal means more interest and more offers. Don’t leave money on the table!
The initial staging consultation is the starting point in the staging process.
During the consultation process our role as Certified Staging Professionals is to provide the
homeowner with an extensive report. This report is an action plan that outlines the recommendations
required to properly prepare the home for sale in order to achieve the best outcome of selling a
home faster and for more money!
The staging consultation process will take approximately 2 hours. To begin the consultation, we will start by taking a tour of the property assessing all areas of the home. We will then discuss with the homeowner suggestions and recommendations that are essential to complete. This will make the home market ready. Our referral network of trade’s people can aid a homeowner in completing tasks which will expedite the sale of the property. This easy to follow report will prove to be a valuable and essential tool when preparing your home for sale.
Vacant properties are difficult to sell without staging, 90% of home buyers cannot visualize a property and its room functions. It is our goal to create stunning spaces that will photograph beautifully. We aim to make your property memorable and stand out from other homes on the market. Applying our streamlined process with lifestyle staging will achieve a designer look with a WOW FACTOR! When staging a vacant property House to Home offers various staging packages. These packages are customized to the sellers target market, their budget and the homes design style.
When staging an occupied property a homeowner must consider that the way they live in a home and the way they need to market it are two different things. When we are marketing a home, it is time to turn it into an appealing property for sale. A home must be viewed as a product on the market and like any product, it must attract the widest range of potential buyers and achieve optimum sale.
When we stage an occupied home we are presenting a property that is not specific to the homeowner’s tastes and style but creating an environment that is attractive and appealing to the buyer. A visit to your home will allow us to assess your property and create a proposal for staging services. The goal of occupied staging is to create a space that will allow buyers to mentally place themselves and their belongings in the home.

We Understand The Psychology Of Buyers
Where do I begin with Amanda and Carmela? I was in a situation where I didn’t have much prep time prior to going live with my listing. I needed staging to be done quickly and efficiently and these girls delivered! Not only did they get it done in the tight time frame, the quality of the staging was also absolutely incredible! The reception I received once the house listed was outstanding as well. I would recommend House to Home Staging to any realtor out there that values hard work, and high-end execution. Thanks again girls!- Matthew Campoli, Real Estate Agent, Vaughan
