Home Staging in Kawartha Lakes & Haliburton


You’ve probably asked yourself why go through so much trouble to stage a home you’re just going to sell? For starters, in Peterborough, the Kawarthas and Haliburtons highly competitive cottage and housing market, home staging has become an important tool to effectively sell homes and cottages. It focuses on improving a property, highlighting important characteristics and transforming it into an attractive product for sale.

Even beautifully decorated homes and cottages need to be turned into a merchandised product that enhances the home’s best features and depersonalizes, making it more visually interesting to prospective buyers.

The goal of staging is to appeal to a greater number of perspective buyers, which will lead to better offers or even multiple offers and the BEST price for your cottage or home.

Todd Sayles at BALL Real Estate Inc., Brokerage will put you in touch with a professional home stager to give your home the treatment it deserves.


Start the selling process off right! Staging creates excitement and interest from the beginning and sets your home apart from the competition.

Properties that have been staged will have a distinct marketing advantage over non-staged homes.

Staging provides an objective third party to tactfully and respectfully convey to homeowners all the important issues that need to be addressed in order to prepare a property for sale.

Staged homes provide beautiful photos – and when paired with professional photography – you achieve that wow factor! Consumers are savvy and most of them start their search on the Internet and those photos become their first impression.


Staging Consultation: Your home staging experience starts with a full consultation and assessment of each room in your home. Together with your property stager, you’ll plan and execute all the important details for furniture placement, organization, theme and colours for each room.

Each client will receive a personalized report listing each item that is discussed. Included in this report is a contract for the items being used outside of your personal belongings to help give your home that wow factor!

Staging Preparation: Staging preparation starts with de-cluttering and interior organizing. This is one of the most important steps to staging your home. By either utilizing basement space neatly, or preferably renting a small storage locker, your personal belongings, oversized furniture, and items collected over the years can be stored away safely.

Decluttering eliminates distractions that could potentially hinder the successful sale of your home or cottage. One of the best parts about the decluttering step is that you’ve ended up organizing your belongings well before your move.

Starting the Staging Process: Once the home or cottage has been decluttered, your blank canvas is ready. A time will be set for the staging company to take care of the necessary tasks to have your home ready for the market. This will often align with professional photos once your home once it’s ready to be showcased.
