Ten Staging Tips for Selling During the Holidays

Holiday Staging tips!

While it may be the holidays for many, it may also be the time serious buyers are searching for their perfect home.  If you are thinking about selling, here are ten staging tips for selling during the holidays.

Safety first- Make sure your walkway and steps are safe for potential buyers. Shovel snow and make sure the walkway is salted for safety.

Light the way- Make sure exterior lighting is in working order. Keep in mind that buyers may want to view the property during evening hours so make sure the walkway is lit.

Clean interior- Cleaning before selling is a must. Rooms should be sparkling clean and tidy. Bathrooms and kitchens should look spotless.

Not too much- Yes, you can still decorate but keep things to a minimal. Buyers want to see the home, not all the decorations. A few tastefully placed holiday decorations go a long way!

Keep pets away- While you may love your four legged friend not all buyers are comfortable with pets. It is best to not have pets in the home when showing the property.

No scent is best- Ginger nutmeg, apple spice, and vanilla are all amazing scents but not all buyers will agree. No scent is best when selling.  Make sure your property appeals to all potential buyers.

Hire a professional stager- A professional stager will not only make recommendations on the best way to prepare your property for sale but also make recommendations on how to accentuate the best features of the home.

Clean and clear the front entrance- Make sure there is enough room for wet boots. Buyers want to be able to take off their boots with ease. Make sure your front entrance is clutter free.

Create a cozy vibe- This is the perfect time to stage the home with throw blankets and comfy pillows. Creating a cozy vibe allows potential buyers to visualize themselves in the space. Who wouldn’t want to wrap themselves in a blanket and sit near the fireplace?

Staging tip ten is consider fresh flowers- Consider placing fresh flowers for photos. They won’t last forever but look beautiful in photos and a few fresh cut flowers won’t break the bank.

Happy Vibes!

Happy Tuesday!

This space gives me happy vibes. With everything going on this year I feel this staging is fresh, pretty and calm looking. Perfect for times like this. The client also wanted a soft palette. Here are a few pics on how we staged for selling.

Benjamin Moore Colour Of The Year 2021

Benjamin Moore’s Colour Of The Year for 2021 is Aegean Teal. This colour really does make me want to pick up a roller and start painting.

Aegean Teal is a combination of blue, teal, and gray. It is soothing and will work well as an accent wall or even a study. With more people working from home this may be the perfect colour!

Dulux O’keefe Grey

Happy Monday!

Here are a few photos of our latest vacant showcasing. The walls needed some work as well. We bought paint to match the existing colour from Dulux. O’keefe Grey is a warm grey but it is really more like a greige. While it is a mix of gray and beige watch out for the undertones! You will definitely see pink undertones with a lot of light.

It is a pretty colour and I think pairs well with soft colours as well. Here are a few pics!

With everything going on I thought I would share some before and after photos of some of our work this year. Transformations can inspire us.  Below are some photos of how we transformed some rooms with paint, vacant staging, and renovations. Take a look!


Ways To Style Your Bed Before Selling

Happy Tuesday!

Styling your bed before photos is always nice. If you are prepping your home for sale don’t forget about the bed! Photos are always taken to capture the master bedroom bed. A properly styled bed not only looks great for photos but it shows buyers that you have taken the time to prep your home for sale.

Taking the extra steps and preparing your property properly makes a difference. Even in todays Ottawa hot housing market. You do want your property to look good.  I have had clients ask for photos on how we style our beds when staging. Below are few examples! Take a look!
