Unoccupied Properties- To Stage or Not To Stage

Which will make a lasting impression on home buyers?

Because 90% of buyers cannot visualize the potential of an empty space, and because home buyers purchase properties based on emotions, unoccupied properties that are staged are more likely to sell faster and for more money than those left empty.

My latest staging project, located in Bishop's Landing which is an award winning condo development on Halifax Nova Scotia's waterfront, is listed with Bryant Realty. Thanks to Heather Munroe for referring me to her selling clients. They understand that staging an unoccupied property is both an investment and a marketing tool that draws in buyers, the majority of whom search the internet for the home of their dreams.

The right furniture correctly placed will show buyers that even condos that are less than 800 square feet can be both functional and current. See for yourself.







Design Tip: Mirrors are multi functional. In addition to serving our personal cosmetic needs, they also can be a stager and a redesigner's best friend. They brighten dark spaces. They expand small spaces and they are an inexpensive form of wall art. Just remember to take into account the reflection produced by the mirror you are hanging. The reflection can be either an embellishment or an eyesore.


The photos of the empty condo prestaging and the bedroom and full bathroom views are courtesy of Anita Macpherson, a professional photographer based here in Halifax.

You can count on Rave Re:view in Halifax Nova Scotia when you hire us to stage your property for the real estate market or redesign the home you are living in.
