The Secret to Selling Your Home

There are many factors that go into the sale of your house, townhouse or condo.  Vancouver is no different from most markets around the world in that pricing and location largely determine your salability but there is a secret.  If you are looking to sell your home you MUST stage it.  You will hear industry professionals,  neighbours, friends, family and others say, “I just gave my home a good clean and removed a few unnecessary items and that did the job.”  When selling your greatest asset you should not be looking to just “do the job”.  By creating a clean and inviting space you will cause potential buyers to fall in love with your home and in turn will receive greater return.  We see it time and time again that the staged homes sell for more money in less time.


Worried about the cost?  No need!  Call Dale and I and we will work with what you have and use our personal inventory of art, bedding, pillows and fluff as Dale calls it to transform your home as part of our full-service listing package.  If you are in need of large pieces such as couches, beds, etc. we can help facilitate these rentals and you can take advantage of our Realtor discount that we receive at several staging warehouses around Vancouver.


Check out some of the before and after shots at one of our most recent transformations!



There was far too much furniture in this suite.  We were able to repurpose a few items and the sellers also removed a few pieces along the way.  We provided small items to elevate the kitchen and feature artwork to bring the room together..


This condo offered an open concept with a natural flow to a second bedroom/office.  The furnishing did not emphasize the fluidity of the space.  Most of the items in this shot were existing but presented in a manner that was more pleasing to the eye.




In most cases less is more.  We added a few pieces here as well but most items used were already present in the seller's home.

The proof is in the result as this unit sold in six days at nearly 99% of list price and set a new bar for sales price in this building.  Older apartment buildings are becoming more and more difficult to sell in these days but staging made the difference for these sellers and will make the difference in your home too.
