This Airdrie home had been listed with another Realtor with no luck snagging a buyer. I knew instantly when I walked in that I could stage this home to draw people in. The big pieces were there but it needed some spice and softness. Also, when a home has been on the market for some time already you need to shake things up with a fresh start and that means a new look and new photos! You don’t want buyers and Realtors to see the same old photos and pass it by thinking they have already crossed that one off the list. At that point the only tool in the box is a price reduction to make it happen. We brought in a rug, some art and pillows to pop in some colour. I remember showing it to a couple of buyers who said, “I think we were in this one before but it looks so different – better!” You know when they settle in on the couch to talk about what they like about the home there’s a good chance you’ve got a sale.
