Staging Your Home

Selling Your Home

You want to obtain the best return on your investment, you want your home to sell quickly, and for the highest price possible.

Staging Your Home

When you list your home, the web pictures should showcase a home that buyers will be eager to view.

This is not to say that your home is not already well decorated or well maintained.  How you live in your home is simply different than how you present it for sale.

To attract the widest selection of potential buyers your home must show at its best.


Staging - Living RoomStaging your home enables you to accomplish this and delivers results.

Buyers are willing to pay more for a home when they are confident that they can move in without worrying about repairs or maintenance issues.

Taking care of these details now can make the difference between a sale or a request for a price reduction.

Entice buyers to make that all-important emotional connection to your home. Stage your home for a successful sale.

Testimonials – Vacant Home Staging

What our clients are saying about staging their vacant home for a successful sale.

“After months of a lukewarm response by potential buyers for our vacant house we changed realtors and were advised to consider staging our home.  Sharon stepped in quickly and did the staging over the weekend, fitting into a tight schedule so we could get our home back onto the market.

When we stepped back into our home, we were amazed.  Sharon had created individual spaces with specific purpose and beauty, suggesting how a buyer could turn the house into their home.  She upgraded the ambience of the house from 1970’s to contemporary.  There were places to linger and admire, decorative hints that repeated throughout to pull the home together.  You could stand in a room and imagine being already moved in and enjoying life there.  Placement of furniture and accessory groups drew you to the views outside.  We have special Japanese drawers built into the living room and they are now the stars of the space.

But I think the potential buyers’ response in their offer says it all.  They wanted the furniture, to take the house just as it was.  They were enchanted and you can’t ask for a better result than that! Sharon is professional and reliable, and we couldn’t be more pleased.”   Dorothy Drubek – Courtenay, BC

“Sharon is a true professional with an eye for detail.  She staged my house that I was putting up for sale and I was wowed by the result! If you are planning on staging your empty house, I recommend Sharon.”  Emily Kim – Courtenay, BC

Is your home is already listed but just not moving?

Before you decide to reduce the asking price for your home, contact us.

Staging - Already Listed - Living Room

A price reduction is money out of your pocket – simple as that.

Buyers are often reluctant to pay full price for a home that does not present well.

Too much stuff, clutter, and furniture set up that does not work well can negatively affect your sale. A fresh look can make a big difference.


Staging - Already Listed - Master Bedroom

An empty home may sit on the market for an extended period of time.  Buyers have a difficult time seeing their items in a vacant home.

Furniture, accessories, and artwork can transform your home and create new interest in your listing.

Staging makes the difference between a home that stands out from the crowd and a home that blends into the rest of the listings on the market.

Stage your home to stand out from the crowd and improve the presentation of your listing.

Testimonial – Improving the Presentation

What our clients are saying about improving the presentation of their home for sale.

“We were not having any luck with selling our empty house.  So, we decided to call Sharon for some advice.  She is easy to work with and at a very reasonable price.  I love what she did with the place.  I would recommend Sharon to everyone.” Catherine Haddon – Comox, BC

Staging with Bold Colours.

You want your listing to stand out from other homes on the market.

Staging Using Bold Colours - Living Dining After

Buyers often view multiple homes in a day and remembering all the homes they view can be a challenge. Often one home blends into another.

This vacant home was staged using furniture with a bold, red colour.

The client’s comments on our Staging services for their vacation rental site

“Sharon worked with us, on various projects, over a two-year period.  Interior Decorating and Professional Organizing projects were completed.

We were looking to advertise our home on a Vacation Rental site.  Sharon set up our home for a photo shoot.  She organized and set up the kitchen, dining room, living room, master bedroom, master bathroom, and two spare bedrooms.  The furniture was set up to work well for visitors. The home was set up to be warm and welcoming for our future guests.  Sharon went shopping for new towels, throw cushions, and accessories to make the vacation rental look great.

We would recommend Sharon, from Armellas Style In Design, to anyone looking to set up their home or portion of a home for a vacation rental.” Lourdes Gant – Manatee Holdings – Courtenay, BC
