This is a great colourful guide for getting your home prepped for a quick sale.
What says welcome home more than a bright red door? This house is next door to me and I love looking at it every time I walk by. The contrast of the bold red door against the black and white is fantastic. If had been just plain old white, nothing would have really differentiated it from the other little war time homes that dot the street. The front door is a great focal point to a home, so why not give [...]
We love it when we get the call “I’ve lived in my condo for a year & still don’t have it looking the way I want.” Music to the ears. One of the rooms our client wanted to transform was the bedroom. She lives in a beautiful Yaletown condo in Vancouver with stunning views of the water. As she gets older, so does her style & taste. What can make a bedroom feel more glamorous or luxurious than wallpaper? We found this [...]
This beautiful West Van home has been on the market since May unstaged with no offers. When the staged house next door sold, (staged by us) the homeowner knew it was time. I get super excited watching an empty house slowly transform into a “home”, one pretty pillow, vase & piece of artwork at a time. Will keep you posted on how quickly it sells now.
For the non believers out there, this is for you. In the spring, we were hired by a busy developer to stage one of his 3 newly built homes, all next to each other on a beautiful lot in West Vancouver. All of the houses were just above the $3 million dollar range. The house immediately next door is the exact same house, a mirror to the one we staged. As time went by 4 offers were received, but only on [...]
My client in the West End of Vancouver’s downtown asked for some help……..actually the real estate agent phoned me. He was really frustrated that his well priced condo wasn’t moving & they were interested in staging. It had been on the market for a bit & the son was finally moving out to give us a clean slate. Before staging , I highly recommended changing ALL of the dated light fixtures, adding a mirror above the sink in the bathroom (can’t [...]
” Staging works! Suze McCart of Suze Interiors recently was hired by my seller at my recommendation to stage a home of his recently departed aunt. Suze handled the situation with compassion and sensitivity, giving my client a sense of confidence about the whole process. With her flair for presentation, Suze turned a dated, time-warped condo into a fresh and contemporary living space. The result: selling for more than 99% of the asking price in just 4 days. This was [...]
Drapes in my opinion are luxurious. They complete a room & give it that finishing touch. They add warmth as well as texture and can be made using beautiful fabrics that tie in the rest of the colours in the room. If you love that darkness you get when you stay in hotels, that is also easy to achieve, we put a black out lining on them to block out the light. My client recently took that step to get drapes [...]
When a condo has the key pieces, sometimes it is just a matter of editing what they have as far as art and accessories and bringing in a few pieces that make the room feel put together. It always amazes me how getting in the right piece of art can completely transform a room. Now this Yaletown condo with the fabulous view, has a fabulous interior to match. Before After Before After
