As you live in your home from day to day, you are surrounded by your personal items, your favourite pictures, the things that are meaningful to you and your family. When your home is listed for sale however, it becomes a marketable product. Now, you want your home to appeal to a broad range of prospective buyers.
Increasing the value of your home, whether for sale or for your own enjoyment, through our personalized home staging and redesign services is our goal!

As a professional Stager I will look at your home with an unbiased eye, recommending needed repairs, updates, and improvements to show your home to its utmost potential.
Recent research has shown that properly staged properties sell on average for 8% more money than unstaged properties and in about half the time!! As an accredited International Staging and Interior Redesign Professional I will give an objective, professional opinion on what deterrents exist in your home that may cause potential buyers to lose interest. Most importantly - I will help you to highlight your home's best features, making it more inviting and appealing to buyers.

Other benefits of professional home staging include:

*creating the right atmosphere for buyers when they first enter the home
*depersonalizing, making it easier for buyers to visualize the house as their home
*focusing the buyers' attention on the product you wish to sell: your home!

We can readily attest to Risa Mallory's home staging talent. We first met Risa when she and husband Bill hired us to sell their winter home in Arizona. Risa had performed her magic on the home. It was beautifully decorated with contemporary furnishings, and was staged and accessorized strategically so that buyers could easily envision themselves living in the space. Her work made our job easier. Three weeks after we listed it on the MLS, the home sold at 98% of asking price! If you are thinking about listing your home for sale, you would benefit by contacting Risa and the Homestyle by Design team.
