Hello and Welcome
That is what your home should say too. We can make
We work with property owners and real estate agents to help prepare properties to go on the market, and to help homeowners decorate beautiful spaces for living. We offer a wide range of real estate staging and design services for properties of all sizes, styles and budgets. As a member of the Canadian Certified Staging Professionals, our stagers are trained, insured & certified.
Using a creative touch with real estate acumen, we style savvy to help you sell smart.
What is staging?
Staging is not just decorating! It is an essential marketing tool used to prepare a property for sale to help maximize value and secure the best possible offer. A professional stager uses art and science to create a broader buyer appeal using both creative design techniques and proven selling methods. Whereas a decorator creates an emotional connection for the homeowner, a stager creates an emotional connection for a wide range of prospective buyers. Please see our Staging Services for information about how we can take the stress out of selling your home.
Perhaps your real estate agent has referred you to us, and you're wondering whether staging your property is really necessary? The answer is a resounding yes! Here are just some of the reasons why:
- Staged homes sell for more money and with fewer days on the market
- For every dollar spent on staging, property owners gain a 349% return on investment.
- In a crowded real estate market, staged homes have a huge advantage as they present better, stand out more, show better in photos and print, and attract more showings.
- First impressions occur within seconds and generally buyers only take 3-6 minutes to view a property and make an emotional connection. Every second counts.
When should I stage my home?
Some people feel they would rather test the market first before making an investment in staging. However, as the saying goes, you only have one chance to make a first impression, and in real estate that first impression is everything. A RESA study found that on average, when owners invest in staging before listing, their properties sell 79% faster than unstaged homes. Staging works - can you afford to wait?
Do you do more than staging?
Yes, we offer a range of design services from decorating consultations, room sketches and planning, paint colour consultations, finishings and materials selection, sourcing furniture and accessories, shopping access to "trade only" wholesalers and retail discounts, installation and finishing touches. Whether you simply want to spruce up a room and need to bounce around some ideas, or you want to re-design your entire home, Lawton Interiors can help. Please see our Design Services for information about how we can make your house a home.
