Complete Repairs- Deal with any areas of your home that are damaged that may bepotential red flags for buyers. Common quick fixes include drywall repair, caulking, and replacing knobs or doorhandles.
Declutter- I can’t stress this one enough. Get rid of all the items that you hardly use that are cluttering up your home.
Start Packing- Pack up out-of-season clothing, sports gear and small appliances you know you wont need before the move. Too much stuff crammed into cupboards and clos-ets make your home feel smaller.
Downsize Furniture- Consider removing extra or large pieces of furniture that makes your home look smaller. You may want to hire a professional stager to highlight specific areas of your home and assist you with your furniture layout and decor.
Depersonalize- Put away family photos, collectibles, and any other personal items. It’s important to make you home a black canvas for potential buyers to imagine themselves in.
Why is white a great colour choice for sellers
White is clean: white works well for home sellers because it reads as a clean color. White is reassuring to potential buyers. It is also trusting the same way a doctors coat is.
White is benign: white's also a good home staging color because potential buyers will never dislike it. They probably won't say, "Too bad they painted the walls white. We'll have to paint them over before we can move in." More than likely they will say, "Our furniture will work with the wall color.We won't have to paint right away."
Elegant Staging for a north Delta home
This stunning custom built home in North Delta is Visage's latest real estate staging project. Our styling was dictated by the gorgeous marble flooring and the luxurious crystal chandeliers throughout the home.
We maintained the luxurious look using shiny and neutral coloured artwork and decor. By adding touches of gold and silver it completed the look.
Without furniture and decor, a vacant home can be difficult for a buyer to visualize. By staging it, they are able to see what their dream home can look like.
Decorating this brand new home by CasaVilla Development LTD was a breeze to furnish and decorate thanks to the high quality construction and thoughtful design.
All we had to do was add some light-coloured furnishings and some natural, earthy decor to create a luscious five bedroom home. The Jute rug, linen sofa, and solid mahogany nesting tables topped with faux greenery, compliment the bleached oak flooring, the warm white walls and the surrounding forest of this Lynn Valley neighbourhood.
This stunning custom built home in West Vancouver's British Properties is Visage Home Staging's latest success story. Our styling was very much dictated by the traditional moulding, lighting and the beautiful marble flooring.

Staging vacant homes helps your potential buyer visualize what their dream home could look like. Many cannot see beyond four walls and a floor when the property is vacant.
Here are 5 reasons to hire a professional home stager:
1. A home stager can fully furnish and decorate an empty home so that a buyer can imagine themselves in the space. An empty house can be cold and uninviting, which can turn buyers away.

3. Staged homes sells faster and for more money.
4. A home stager can offer suggestions through a fresh set of eyes, in a way that the homeowners who has emotional attachments to the home cannot.
5. A staged home will have certain look that is inviting and pleasing the eye, giving it an advantage over its competitors.

Visage Home Staging and Design works with the client to get an occupied home in show-ready condition. If homeowners are living in the house while trying to sell it, we concentrate on de-personalizing, de-cluttering, cleaning, and improving the home’s overall appeal. Existing home furnishings will be showcased and can also be supplemented with additional furniture and decor from our warehouse. A redesign of an occupied home ensures the space is visually attractive to attract offers and support a higher profit for the seller.
This three year old condo was in desperate need of a complete style overhaul. The existing furniture was very traditional and off-scale, making the space appear smaller and dated. It needed contemporary furniture to really showcase this brand new modern space.
We had a pleasure of staging a beautiful condo in Harvard Gardens by Polygon in South Surrey last week. To minimize client's investment, we utilized her furniture in the master bedroom and continued with the same style through out the property. We are happy how it all turned out, but most of all our client loved it! And that makes us even happier.
