PROPER staging will absolutely ensure a quicker sale and better price for a property. The staging must be inline with buyer expectations for the neighbourhood and type of property. It does not necessarily have to be elaborate or ultra modern. Staging should appear to be natural to the style of the home, it should accentuate the best features of the home and allow the buyer to imagine their new life there.
Here are a few examples of properties I have staged
If you have a unique property and are looking to find the right agent who can bring the right buyers, feel free to send me details on your situation and schedule a consultation. My approach to marketing and presentation of properties has allowed me to sell unique luxury homes and properties that have been unsuccessful in selling before. When thinking of selling these types of properties getting the right advice is crucial to your success.
The consultation will include the following information:

So you have an idea you may want to list your home, now what do you do? My suggestion is to get a proper market valuation for your home to know what a buyer will pay for it in its current condition. Call a trusted realtor who knows your market area as you will also want to know what the best improvements are that will actually make you money. Not all renovations and improvements are appreciated by buyers and will not translate into increased value in your home. Make sure you get your advice right so you can get the result you want in the sale of your home.
Fix anything that needs repair, touch up paint, clean baseboards, clear out extra unneeded clothes from closets, spruce up landscaping, you would likely give your car a good clean and tune up if you were trying to sell it so do the same for your home!
