Heather Sorgat, CCSP
Restyled Spaces & Home Staging Co.’s founder & principal designer
Heather Sorgat’s journey into the staging world begin in 2001 when she bought her first fixer-upper; a run down, war time home in the Ottawa area. Heather was amazed at what a lot of elbow grease and gallons of paint could do to transform a space. “I’ve always been able to see through the cosmetic issues and find affordable and easy solutions to bring a room back to life. My friends thought I was crazy to tackle that sort of project but the end result was dramatic, and I was able to increase the value by $45,000 in less than 2 years. I’ve been passionately transforming spaces ever since”.
In 2015, Heather decided to commit to the business full-time, and opened Restyled Spaces & Home Staging Company. As part of being a consummate professional, she received Honours in both her Home Staging – Residential Decor program at Algonguin College, and her Canadian Certified Staging Professional designation.
What is staging?
Everybody has heard the term “staging” but what does it really mean?
Staging is the preparation of a property for sale to increase its competitive advantage in the Real Estate marketplace by showcasing its valued features to appeal to the broadest buying demographic. In 2015 a recent study shows that people in their 30’s are purchasing the most homes.
Technology and access to online pictures, has dramatically changed the way people research and decide if they want to see a property. Most buyers will view their potential new home online before deciding which ones to visit.
This means that having a PICTURE PERFECT property is essential to attract the most available buyers.
Did you know?
Not only do people have an emotional reaction to colour, they also have a psychological and physical response when a room doesn’t feel right. When spaces are too small, too dark or over cluttered, this creates tension and a sense of being overwhelmed. This will deter a potential buyer from seeing the room’s potential. Hiring a stager can turn uninviting spaces into harmonious and tranquil rooms, that buyers can see themselves living in.
What do young professionals and young families want to see?
Most buyers want to see a turnkey property that is ready to move in. They don’t want to see a lot of clutter or dated furniture. According to the Canadian Certified Staging Professionals, today’s buyers want to see freshly painted walls, current flooring (i.e. hardwood throughout) and a property that offers organized storage solutions.
First impressions sell homes.
Did you know that potential buyers will make a decision whether or not to purchase your property within the first 15 seconds of entering? Creating the most appealing site lines as soon as you enter is a necessity. Staging your home will provide your potential buyers with the “wow factor” as soon as they open your front door
Why invest in Staging?
