So, should you hire a professional Home Stager in Toronto, or take the DIY route?

Understanding Current Market Conditions
The average homeowner might not necessarily have their finger on the pulse of the current happenings in the local real estate market.

On the other hand, a professional home stager is trained and experienced in this field, and will know exactly what’s needed to prep your home for the specific type of buyers looking in your area. In the real estate business this is called the demographics. Professional home stagers are trained to look at the demographics in your area to pinpoint the age, gender, income levels and likes and dislikes of the potential buyer of your home.

If your home currently does not have the type of furniture and accessories that buyers in your area find attractive, or if your home is currently vacant, where will you get these pieces to complete the home staging process?

The Home Staging Toronto process if done yourself can take a very long time. From coming up with a strategy, to shopping around for the right pieces, to the actual moving process itself. Staging is very time-consuming. You likely have a full-time job and family obligations that would stand in your way of completing this task in a time-efficient manner.
