Halifax based Prep Home Staging, now in their 8th year of business, have staged and transformed a wide array of vacant and occupied homes, model homes, condos and rental properties in the Halifax, Dartmouth, Sackville and Bedford area, traveling as far afield as Wolfville, Nova Scotia. Working in tandem with our Realtor clients, builders and home owners we plan staging from start to finish to ultimately showcase a property to it’s full potential. Halifax home stager Avril Brown studied visual merchandising and commercial art in Aberdeen, Scotland and has experience as a home decor buyer, retail merchandiser, showroom decorator and general manager for home furnishings and decor in Canada and the UK. As a freelance photo shoot stylist for Canadian retailer Wicker Emporium Avril has been styling product for their website and social media images for over 6 years. These skills ensure your online images will stand out with correct furniture placement, updated decor and on trend colour to wow home buyers.
If you want to sell your home, your online images have to stand out and impress buyers, plain and simple. 94% of buyers shop for a new home online, so preparing your home by staging before listing is no longer an option, it is now a necessity. I can advise you on where to spend and where to save when preparing your home for today’s very competitive real estate market. Staging is a marketing tool and the cost is staging is much more affordable than a price drop.
Of all the investments you make, none is more important than your home. Whether you want to keep your house or sell it, I will assist you in styling to improve the value of your investment or staging to obtain it’s full worth when it comes time to sell. Staging allows buyers to see how a home will fit their lifestyle, something they struggle with when viewing a poorly presented property and especially a vacant property. I recognizes the strengths and weaknesses in a home and give you a game plan to bring out the best features to get a buyer’s attention. An ideal home means different things to different people but the most appealing properties “just feel right” and knowing how to create the “it factor” is key to selling successfully. Many of our staged properties have received offers in just days after staging.
Furnishing and accessory rentals
I provide staging consults, at your convenience, for occupied homes (normally 2 hour sessions) with detailed emailed reports (probably the best $165 you will ever spend) which will give you a game plan for getting your home in tiptop shape to list. A colour consult is included no charge with our occupied home sellers consult. A staging consult is a valuable service which many of my Realtor clients provide for their home sellers as part of their listing package. If your home is vacant I prepare a no charge quote for staging services and rentals from Prep Home Staging’s extensive inventory.
Online images have to grab the attention of a home buyer in seconds. Having the right “look” for today’s real estate market means updated furnishings and accessories in a style that will complement your property . Staging with up to date colour, textures, furnishings and accessories will ensure you home is looking it’s very best.
We rent staging inventory by the week or month to suit your needs.
