Why not think of Staging as YOUR Ultimate Marketing Tool.Staging is not a decorating process, but is a smart marketing tool used to prepare, enhance and showcase properties for a quick sale and top dollar. Buyers typically purchase properties with their emotions, by visualizing themselves and/or their families living and entertaining in these spaces. As a trained staging professional, Chrysalis Creations has the expertise to enhance, prepare and showcase the selling features of the properties on the market. We truly believe that every property can show like a model home, regardless of size and price point. The first step is a Staging Consultation, which is a 2-hour tour, room by room. You will be provided an itemized list of valuable action items that will definitely get you moving in the right direction prior to listing. Remember that with online shopping, MLS is the driving force and the first point of viewing that will either get buyers swooning to view your property, or simply move on to the next that may look more appealing. Consider us as part of your Marketing Team. Consultation fee: $200.00. Staging fee: varies on the number of rooms and accessory rentals.
Vacant StagingThis is when the home is completely empty and requires furniture and accessory rentals.
Occupied StagingWe specialize in Occupied Staging, which by definition, is when the homeowner occupies their home while selling. Occupied Staging can be done in two ways: The first is working with all of the homeowner’s furniture and accessories. For optimal showcasing and marketing, furnishing and accessories should be in clean and updated condition. No rental fees apply. The second way involves accessory rental items that will be required, such as artwork, accent pillows and lighting. Each package is individually tailored to the homeowner’s needs, to best enhance and showcase the highlights of each home.
4 Steps to Staging and Marketing Your Home
– The consultation is 2 to 3 hours depending on the square footage of the home. Each room is evaluated, with a list of action items developed that are required to be addressed by the homeowner before listing. A full report will be provided with all action items noted. However, at the end of the tour, the critical action items will be discussed directly with the homeowner.
– Upon agreement of the staging/marketing process a contract will be drawn up, outlining fees, special requirements and payment details. This will vary depending on the homeowner’s requirements for furniture and accessories rentals.
– Staging the property for optimal MLS photos and for Open House.
– De-Staging after the house sells. We will return to the property to remove all furniture and accessories, if rentals were required.
Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and the entire “crew” for the professional performance and results in the staging of my client’s home. I know that this property was a true challenge for your team. On short notice and with limited resources the results were fantastic! My client commented on the outstanding service and communication by all those in attendance. Please extend my sincere thanks to everyone on a job well done.
Oh, I almost forgot…one hour after the home was staged we held our first showing…and yes, miracles do happen…the vendors accepted a satisfactory offer! Testimonials and results just don’t get much better than this.Regards, John - RE/MAX Centre City Realty Inc. - London, ON
"Recently, I had an opportunity to work with Patty in staging one of my listings. a great amount of knowledge and an eye for detail and class, plus she made the task so much fun! I hope to work with her in presenting more of my listings!"Anastasia Kuzyk - Century 21 Neville Realty Ltd. Brokerage
My husband and I had decided to put our home up for sale and relocate to the east coast in order to spend more time with our grandchildren. This had been our family home for 17 wonderful years and selling the place was a bittersweet experience.
We had the pleasure of working with Patricia to help us prepare our home for the purpose of selling. Our realtor was anxious to meet Patricia. She had never really worked with a professional stager before and was looking forward to working with Patricia. It worked out so well, we soon had our home looking wonderful. Patricia was professional and worked very well with our realtor. Afterwards, our realtor asked for her name and number, as she would love to work with her again for future sales. Our realtor could not say enough about how well the two of them connected.
Patricia walked through the house and with her expertise and know how, pointed out areas where we needed to make changes in order to show the house better and to showcase the homes special features. She asked questions; she listened to our special needs and made suggestions based on our input. She was sensitive and made us feel comfortable with all the changes that she thought would help. Patricia was respectful of our home and its contents, which she handled with great care.The result of her time, her efforts and her attention to detail led to the sale of our home. We had such positive feedback from prospective buyers. Our house became a show place, which we were so proud to show. We are so thankful to Patricia for her abilities, her care and sensitivity to our needs. She was respectful, courteous, and trustworthy. She made decisions easily to help us create a wonderful home to show. Stephanie and Jim Graham - Round Lake, Ontario
