home staging

The industry secret to a successful real estate sale is home staging. Beyond the careful market research and hiring a good realtor that homeowners need to do in preparing their home to list, professional staging can be the hat trick that gets them the top dollar they’re asking for.


Your house could be spotless, have every new appliance and a manicured landscape, but when it comes to the small details of what will entice potential buyers into believing your home could be theirs, staging is what will go that extra mile to get those better offers. Whether it’s that personal family photo versus an eye-catching piece of art or your well-loved furniture compared to the luxurious dining set, master bedroom suite or living room accents of your buyer’s dreams; it’s a Stager’s job to make those dreams come true--even if just long enough to get that above-asking offer.


Revamp Home Staging: “making the most out of your property”, states one of Vancouver’s premier companies in the field. With over 2,000 homes, display suites, condos and penthouses furnished and decorated since 2003, Revamp enhances the uniqueness of each property to its maximum potential with one goal in mind: to sell fast, and to sell for more. Nothing is outsourced, and thus co-founders Michael McNamara and Rien Sharma and their team of interior designers are able to work their magic on tight deadlines. Experienced in the latest design trends and colour palettes, they will transform your home to perfection.


Another of Vancouver’s staging companies that aims to wow is Flüff. Its extensive 15,000+ square foot warehouse chock full of unique furniture, art, and accessories is all arranged by easy-to-use colour stories. Their expert team of interior designers, “TheFlüffians”, are ready to assist you under the guidance of owner Patti Houston and make the process enjoyable and productive. From homes to film sets, Flüff is a stager’s paradise; whether you’re already working with an interior designer or a homeowner looking to get a handle on it yourself, everyone is welcome.


Going it alone? Start with the top three pro tips from Patti Houston, Owner of Flüff Designs:

1. A great rule of thumb is to hang art 60" from the floor. Lower hanging art actually makes ceilings appear higher.

2. Don't overdo accessorizing! Know when to stop. It's also important to use greenery in every project; nothing beats nature.


3. Never compete with a view!
