Confessions of a Calgary Home Staging Company: Our 3 Most Commonly Asked Questions

By | DIY, staging | No Comments

As home stagers who work with Calgary’s competitive housing market, we regularly get a variety of questions about our job… But it’s surprising how often we get asked these 3 specific questions:

  1. What exactly is it that we do?
  2. How do we do it?
  3. What can people do to make their own homes more presentable?

We’re asked these same questions over and over again at parties, coffee shop conversations, and even from our own families!

What it means is that for every $724 you spend on having a real estate listing professionally staged, you’ll see an average return of $2,145.
