Suze Interiors was asked by the owner & publisher of Homes & Land Magazine (Simcoe County, Parry Sound & Muskoka) to help write their article on staging. We were happy to provide some tried & true staging tips. (photos not provided by Suze Interiors)

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 it some punch.
Some people paint the shutters and trim the same, but it takes away from the dramatic impact of having the door colour stand alone.
Why not give your home a pick me up this spring with a bright, bold and exciting front door.
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 the house that was staged, which in fact is the also the one that just sold.
We will be staging the other two homes within the next week, as the owner truly understands the power of staging.
Which house would you rather buy?
Or this one?
