Buyers form an opinion of a house as they pull up to it, so it was important for the home staging team at Design to Impress to leave a strong first impression upon staging 76 Reynolds Cres., a house in Aurora, Ontario.
Power washes were done to all four sides of the house. Flowers were planted in the garden, potted plants graced the front deck and backyard patio. The lawn was weeded and mowed.
Bold colours on the inside of them were replaced by neutral ones for a wide-range appeal. Blinds and drapery were opened up to let natural light into the home, and wattage was adjusted in rooms were the sun didn’t shine as bright.
The house was thoroughly cleaned by professionals. Floors were vacuumed and mopped. Counters were dusted. Pet hairs were eliminated.
Clutter was eliminated to show off storage space. Lingering personal items deter potential buyers from visualizing themselves living in your space.
Worn out furniture and furnishings were replaced with new sofas, chairs, tables and accessories. Artwork replaced family photos hung on the wall.
Chipped tiles were replaced, faded paint received a new coat, squeaky doors were oiled, and other minor repairs were resolved before the showing.
For paint colours, beige was applied to living spaces, a darker tone for bedrooms, and a light green and blue for the bathrooms.
Worn out carpeting was replaced with hardwood in certain rooms. Worn-in hardwood was covered up with area rugs.
Light fixtures, such as outlets and switches, were adjusted to maximize brightness in some rooms, while dimming the lights in others.
The house at 76 Reynolds Cres. in Aurora was staged to sell for a high ROI via Toronto’s home staging team, Design to Impress!
