Unique Challenges

As the largest investment for most families, the goal of maximizing a home’s equity should be foremost when going to market. When vacant, either due to a renovation or other circumstances, it is particularly important to use colour, light, and showcasing of the space to present your home as one that will inspire buyers to make an offer. Our clients range from individual homeowners, real estate sale representatives, investors, builders, property management firms, commercial businesses, and rental property owners.Selling a vacant home has its own unique challenges. As a blank and empty space potential buyers will not spend much time and energy viewing your listing online because there is nothing to capture their attention. Since buyers decide within seconds if a home is “the one” a vacant property is unable to create the emotional connection.

  • Most buyers have difficulty visualizing their belongings in an empty space, both from a configuration perspective but also in understanding the scale of the room. There can also be ambiguity about the functional intent of a room and the best furniture placement.
  • A vacant house tends to echo and amplify sounds that can be distracting, particularly if it is a negative noise such as traffic. This is because there are no furnishings in the space to absorb noise.
  • In the absence of interior furniture and accessories the eye is drawn to every little flaw and mark which would otherwise be overlooked.

The solution: Home Transitions will confront these challenges by developing a custom design plan that will create an identity and personality for the home, exuding a warm and welcoming environment. We carry full inventory in our warehouse, including high end furniture, art, area rugs, décor, linens, and florals and trees. This provides the buyer community with a vision of the property’s potential, and they can them imagine it as their dream home, increasing your vacant property’s marketability.

Vacant Home Consultation

Every home deserves a consultation, including those that are vacant.

During our onsite visitation to the property we will review the readiness of the property for showcasing. Home Transitions can provide detailed advice and counsel for fee if repairs, upgrades, finishes selections, and refreshing are still required before staging can commence. We will discuss project budget, define the ideal spaces to stage, photograph and measure during this initial meeting.

Design Plan Proposal

Now that we are familiar with the spaces to be staged Home Transitions will develop a custom design concept for showcasing the home, elevating its visual display to appeal to the largest buying demographic; translating into higher offers and faster sales. Our proposal will provide options for staging the various spaces, consistent with budget, using accessories and furnishings from our vast inventory to create a cohesive look for increased emotional appeal and the 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 is 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 view your home.
