The Linda Maguire Team Announces Burlington, Ontario, Home Sale of More Than $100,000 above Asking Price

The Linda Maguire Team | Burlington Ontario Home SalesBurlington, Canada, June 8, 2016- The Linda Maguire Team recently announced their success with selling a home in Alton Village, Burlington for over $100,000 above the asking price.


Listed at $729,000, the family was pleasantly surprised and impressed when their home sold for a whopping $836,000.


The Linda Maguire Team used its Active Staging service to really show off the home and maximize its appeal.

According to Brian Maguire there is a difference between staging practiced by most real estate agents, and the Active Staging service offered by the Linda Maguire Team: "The typical realtor’s “staging service “involves walk through a house pointing at things that need to be done, removed or replaced, but these realtors don’t actually do the work themselves. They just suggest to the homeowner a list of things they need to do or buy."  This technique adds more pressure and cost to homeowners.


“What we do is called Active Staging, because we take an active role in getting it done. We actually go to our staging warehouse, and using a truck, we bring in accessories, furnishings, carpets, wall pictures, outside tables and chairs, plants, etc.  We also get involved in things like taking down wallpaper and painting.  We do a lot of the staging and preparation work ourselves.  For this particular house we brought in furnishings, lamps, pillows, and accessories, while the owners took on the role of de-cluttering the house of the children’s personal belongings." 


Another successful strategy used by The Linda Maguire Team was their advice to the homeowners to list at the predicted market value and not to allow offers for a few days. As a result they received 9 offers, including the successful bid which was more than $100,000 over the asking price. 


Overall, the great success in this sale was attributed to the combination of a hot market, the right listing strategy, the homeowners’ efforts to de-clutter and the Active Staging service provided.  The family who ended up with an extra $100,000 tax free in their pockets, were especially grateful and enthusiastic about moving to the next stage of their lives.
