Services : Home Staging

When you get ready to place your home on the market for sale it becomes a product. Similar to a product on the shelf at your local store, the product has features and benefits that separate it from the competition. To compete with the competition in the marketplace, the product must be priced right and look better than other products on the market. Your home is no different, it is one of many homes for sale, and you must present it, in the best possible light to both buyers and brokers.

At Cathy Hobbs Design Recipes we know and understand real estate, our expertise in television and interior design enables us to present properties in the best possible light to the widest audience.

We believe the best and most efficient way for sellers to secure the equity in their home is to have their property staged prior to putting it on the market. This approach ensures that from its initial entry on the market, a property is presented in impeccable show condition.

Home Staging Success Story:
One of Hundreds

Property on the market 6 months. STAGED and SOLD in 2 weeks.

“I confess that I was skeptical about the need for a designer to stage my apartment as part of the sale process. Like a lot of people, I thought that my personal taste in furniture, use of space and even the art work on the walls had universal appeal that would make selling it a breeze. After languishing on the market for more than six months, Cathy showed me that the goal in selling my place wasn’t to validate my individual taste, but to give it the broadest possible appeal in a constantly changing market that she works hard to fully understand. Most important of all, she made me a believer in the very best way possible, with results. After staging my apartment, it sold in just under two weeks, for more than 90 per cent of my asking price. Cathy was also extremely easy to work with and handled every aspect of the staging, including furniture rental and its removal once the sale was completed. I wouldn’t even think of selling another apartment without including her in the process.”
