Debra Gould of HGTV has provided four tendencies which should be resisted when marketing your home for sale. “I’ve seen many examples of ‘silly staging tricks’ over the years,” says Gould, owner of Toronto home staging company, Six Elements Inc., adding, “While good for a laugh, homeowners must realize that buyers are too smart to fall for these tricks, which make it obvious they’re being manipulated into thinking the sellers actually live that way.” These silly tactics will only work against you in selling your property and acquiring the maximum price possible.

They are not going to buy a home based on your interior design or chic accoutrements. The recommendation is for a clean, organized space. Especially in Stephenville, where buyers tend to be valuing comfort and space most of all. We can help sell the vision of a home easier when the scene is not set with someone else’s ideas.
