Home Staging

Like pre-listing home inspections, home staging is becoming better understood and encouraged by Realtors for properties that are somewhat "lacking".

Shows like HGTV's "The Stagers" have really helped consumers see exactly what a professional Home Stager can do for certain properties. Some of the before and after pictures are amazing.

Statistics from 2005 show hiring a Home Stager can reduce a listing's time on the market by one-third and can increase the selling price by 10-15%.

I doubt those statistics still hold in the present market. Though I suspect a professional home staging will still have a positive impact on the selling price of most properties. At minimum, the cost of staging will be recovered when the property sells. I don't see how it could hurt.

  3. I've seen similiar statistics, and I can definitely relate to the homes selling faster portion. A well staged home definitely appeals to more buyers and feels less intimidating. In the Calgary real estate market though I don't see how it could possible raise selling price by 10 - 15%? On a $400k home that would raise selling price by $40-$60k. The home would have to have shown extremely poorly and been brought up to an extremely well showing property, however, I definitely do agree, in many cases it is more than worth the few hundred dollars.

  9. Ground source warming techniques utilise heat from the below the earth's surface to warm encased buildings. Although people have been using the planet's warm for ages through the use of hot rises, the use of a electric to draw warm from the earth is a relatively new idea that just didn't occur until the early 20th century. With pushing ecological concerns surrounding the use of energy sources, geothermal energy warming techniques have become a popular alternative that offer many advantages over their alternatives.

  15. All the heating system inspection Montreal, QC, Canada can offer makes it seem like there's a desperate need for it. And that's fairly true, because when winter comes around you want to be sure your heat is at the top of its game.

  17. I think house staging is very important when trying to sell your home. I consulted a real estate agent when selling mine and they agreed that the house needs to look as good as possible to get the best sale.
