Home Staging Consultation:

Every home deserves a consultation. As the largest investment for most people, the goal of maximizing a home’s equity should be foremost when going to market. The consultation is step one of our process as this is when Home Transitions meets with you to learn of your goals and aspirations. We understand that sometimes selling a family home involves mixed emotions. There is a vast difference between the cozy lived in feel of an occupied home that is designed with personal valuables that meets a family’s functional needs and a staged property. Our input aims, not to judge and erase your personal tastes but rather to educate how to transform your beloved home into a commodity to appeal to a wide range of buyers. We focus on how to assist you to create the ideal environment for a quick and profitable sale. We discuss project budget, become familiar with existing furnishings and accessories, photograph and measure the spaces.

During the initial property tour we will view the home through “buyer’s eyes” and identify critical changes that will make the most impact. Our fresh and objective perspective will result in detailed advice and counsel for preparing the home to sell it for maximum profitability. As the exterior creates the first impact we will give recommendations for ensuring that the curb appeal makes a positive first impression. Also you will participate in a detailed room-by-room analysis of the property, aimed at accentuating spaciousness, minimizing distractions, and alleviating congestion with solutions for common problems such as space configuration, accessorizing, architectural features to accentuate, colour palette improvements, updating, etc.

This becomes your roadmap, clearly outlining the scope of the projects recommended for property preparation so you can proceed with the necessary repairs, refreshing, and upgrades that will garner the best return on your investment. Alternatively Home Transitions can provide oversight for the work on your behalf, engaging the services of our extended professional team partners since the task of coordinating contractors can be a big job for homeowners who may be too busy, out-of-town, etc. These contractors can range from painters, movers, electricians, general repair services, cleaners, window washers, steam cleaners, etc

Design Plan Proposal:

Now that we are familiar with all of the spaces, Home Transitions then develops a unique design concept for showcasing the home by creating focal points and displaying negative space, elevating its visual display to appeal to the largest buying demographic; translating into higher offers and faster sales. Our proposal can combine your belongings and augment with accessories and furnishings from our vast inventory to create a cohesive look for increased emotional appeal. Or we can completely outfit the spaces to create the model home look for that wow factor.


Almost 100% of all home buyers will first shop online to narrow their property search. Showcasing is the final stage of your property transformation, creating spaces with the ideal furniture placement, accessorizing, lighting, and colour to ensure your home captures the attention of prospective buyers and results in being on the must see list for viewings. The beautiful interior aims to inspire potential buyers to make an offer, since they can readily visualize the home’s full potential. This is what differentiates your property from your competition and drives buyer traffic to your property.
