Home Staging Tips For A Quick Sell

I am so excited to share an interview today that I got to do with Tori Toth, a New York City-based home staging expert! I have always found the process of selling and buying a home fascinating.

When looking online you can usually tell which homes have been staged for sale and which haven’t. My first experience with a stager occurred 3+ years ago when we sold our condo.

My realtor felt so strongly that a stager was integral to the process of selling a home that she personally paid for a stager to come to every one of her client’s homes before they put their home on the market.

I learned a lot from my stager about how to market my home to potential buyers and I’m excited to share Tori’s words of wisdom on the topic…READ MORE HERE…

Why Not Choose Valet Toronto Self-Storage?

Getting self-storage in Toronto can be extremely convenient. You have a place to store the items, both big and small, that you don’t want to donate or sell but you also don’t have room for in your home. But just because that aspect of the service is convenient doesn’t mean the entire process is.

It’s hard to think of many things more inconvenient than having to pack up your items, rent a truck, load the truck only to have to drive it all to another location where you can to unload it all. I mean, no one wants to deal with all of that but what choice do you have, right? WRONG!

When you choose Valet Storage you get all the perks of self-storage in Toronto without any of the work. That’s because we bring the unit right to your door and take care of all the heaving lifting for you. We can even fill your boxes with the items you want packed away if you need us to.

We then load up the unit and drive it to our indoor, temperature controlled facility so that you never have to get behind the wheel of a big truck you are not used to driving. We are hands down the most convenient storage company in the Greater Toronto Area with plenty of unique, one-of-a-kind services all at competitive prices.

We can help you with moving as well as packing and storage, so if you are planning a move, no matter where it’s to, give us a call and we can tell you all about our moving services.
