(July 10th, 2012) Kelowna, BC –Teresa Smith, Re/Max Kelowna agent sells property in less than 3 months on the market for 98 percent of asking price. A home she believes would have sat longer without the help of home staging.

“This home is situated in a great family neighbourhood with a fantastic lakeview, The drawback to the property is that it backs to power lines, so to overcome/distract Buyers, the home needed to be staged. The home showed liked a typical well-lived in family home with 2 busy kids and 2 working parents, so there was a lot of STUFF, and it really needed a thorough cleaning, not to mention coordinates and accessories and better furniture placement to get Buyers to acknowledge the view. Bathrooms needed to be “spa-afied” and the master suite needed to show like a”suite”. The before/afters are quite revealing. This home would have sat on the market for a long time had it not been staged (and it didn’t have to cost a lot).” Explains Teresa Smith, Re/Max Kelowna Realtor®  “Kym worked hand-in-hand with my Sellers to create just the right look, considering their budget. She was so giving of her time and talent.”



“Teresa is a hardworking dedicated Realtor who goes to great lengths to make the buying or selling process efficient and pleasurable for her clients. She knows what makes houses sell, both in terms of staging and marketing.” adds Kym Tarr of Prep ThisHouse. “Selling a property takes a team; we make a great one!”
