This vacant home in London Ontario is in desperate need of staging. Priced at over $800,000 it’s not going to sell as quickly as it would with proper furnishing and staging.
Vacant homes don’t invite buyers to fall in love with the property; quite the opposite. They just scream “desperate to sell, make me an offer.”
Often buyers won’t take that next step of making that offer because they can’t visualize themselves living there. It’s just a house, with all its imperfections front and center. There’s no way to tell really how large the rooms are, or whether their furniture might fit. And it’s all so depressing really… an empty house is not a home!
Generally, when offers do come in on vacant homes they are much lower than the homeowner was hoping for. After all, the buyer knows the seller is desperate so why present an offer even remotely close to the asking price?
This is a great project where you can stage a home from top to bottom with furniture, art and accessories. There are ten rooms here! You should be able to make about $5,000 on this project.

Please include “London, ON Home Stager” in the subject line of your email.
Also note that if you don’t already have a website or a page on the Staging Diva Directory of Home Stagers, it will be more difficult to win this project. It’s hard to convince a client to hire you over the phone if they can’t see your portfolio.
Because of all the traffic I get to my two sites, SixElements.com and StagingDiva.com, I get lots of leads on projects from all over Canada and the US and even in South Africa! I will only refer them to Staging Diva Graduates.
It’s interesting that with all the Staging Diva Graduates in Ontario, none are in London! This could be a real opportunity for others to build a staging business there and become the local home staging expert.
