The objective is to present the seller with a comprehensive visual marketing strategy and a customized list of suggestions. These recommendations aim to ensure the highest possible return on their investment, assist in preparing their home for a successful sale, and optimize the value of their most significant asset.

Recommendations include:

items that need to be removed, pre-packed or stored.

✔ how the existing furnishings should be positioned for the best photos.

✔ what needs to be upgraded, cleaned, repaired, painted, or renovated.

✔ paint color recommendations.

✔ what needs to be purchased or rented to enhance each space.

✔ what improvements can be made to exterior spaces to maximize curb appeal.

The homeowner-centric consultation is tailored for individuals who plan to continue residing in their homes while up for sale, and are willing to take on some or all of the staging tasks themselves. We leverage their existing furniture and decor whenever feasible and enhance the overall presentation with our creative insights and proven techniques. Our goal is to suggest optimal furniture arrangements that accentuate the property's strengths while minimizing its weaknesses. Additionally, we provide guidance on cost-effective upgrades and repairs that offer the best return on investment, ultimately enhancing the appeal for today's homebuyers who seek a turnkey experience.

Utilizing the client's existing furnishings serves as a cost-effective approach, ensuring homeowners' comfort during the property's time on the market, thereby mitigating stress and upheaval. Our comprehensive guidance offers practical tips for maintaining a show-ready home, and our tailored recommendations alleviate overwhelming aspects, fostering motivation for the necessary preparations.

Our foremost consideration in all recommendations is the return on investment, with the ultimate aim being to maximize the property's market value.

Our in-house Handyman Services are readily available. For homeowners with demanding schedules or those unable to oversee the project personally, we offer comprehensive project management services. We are dedicated to providing support tailored to your specific needs, whether minimal or extensive.

Consequently, just prior to capturing the marketing images, we revisit the property to meticulously refine and enhance each space, ensuring that the home radiates picture-perfect allure.

It's worth noting that the home must be in impeccable condition, with all renovations, painting, and pre-packing completed before we initiate the photo preparation,

Our Story

Hello there! We are Deborah and Ross, the husband and wife team behind Oasis staging who decided to create a business together that utilizes both of our passions, natural talents, skills and expertise in a complimentary way.

Deborah, with a lifelong passion for interior design and after staging several of her own and friends homes when selling, designing and decorating a newly built cottage from scratch, and also her current home after an extensive renovation, she decided that this is what she wanted to do full time. So, she got certified as a Home Staging Professional and Residential Transition Specialist through the Canadian Staging Professionals International Academy, and also as a Short-Term Rental Design Specialist through the Home Staging Resource Academy. Her expertise is in understanding what it takes to make a property marketable.

Ross, on the other hand, has an engineering background, and love of all things DIY. He has project managed the creation, architectural design and build of three cottages in Muskoka and undertaken several of his own major home renovations doing much of the work himself. He takes great personal pride in the quality and craftmanship of his work. Anything one man can do... he can do. And he has has the tools to get it done!

Together, we offer a one-stop-shop for real estate professionals, homeowners, seniors looking to downsize, and short-term rental hosts. From staging to design to handyman solutions, we've got you covered, tailored to your preferences.

Whether you need a little help or full project management, we're here to meet your needs with enthusiasm and a smile. We see each project as a new and exciting challenge and we look forward to helping you with yours!
