In the Nova Scotia province, home staging is one of the newest and fastest growing marketing tools to improve the odds of selling a home faster and for more money. There are many factors that can influence the sale of a home but growing evidence and anecdotal responses show that highlighting the best architectural features through staging of a home works. Often people in Nova Scotia wanting to sell their home have lived there for a very long time and have accumulated a lot of stuff. They cannot see it from the buyers' eyes. Stagers do staging with or without the client to prepare the home to be attractive to the greatest number of buyers. This involves editing possessions, rearranging furniture and creating new placement for art and accessories.
Making a good first impression is critical, from improving curb appeal to providing additional "props" to round out the whole effect; often these changes have minimal costs but big rewards.
