Complimentary Services

Home Staging

Faris Team offers a complimentary 3-STEP home staging process, completed by the award-winning home staging company, Stage Presence who has staged nearly 4000 homes for Faris Team. Professional home staging truly optimizes the presentation of your home and helps to achieve top selling price. It significantly appeals to buyers through attractive online photography and enhanced live showings. Our clients are always amazed with the results, and buyers are impressed with how well our homes show.

Professional Photography

In the Real Estate industry, it is extremely important to produce professional photos that showcase homes to their full potential. Great photos are imperative and required to present an accurate and appealing representation of your home online and in print. Professional photos are also necessary for outstanding custom feature magazines of your property. According to the 2018 National Association of REALTORS® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, 88% of all home buyers said online websites were the most useful source of information for their home search process. Among all generations of home buyers, the first step in the home buying process is typically looking online for properties for sale.

Faris Team works exclusively with professional photographers from Overstreet Media Productions to deliver this service. Overstreet Photography has over 13 years of experience in the industry and they produce high quality, magazine-like photos that ensure your home will stand out from the competition. These photos are hand selected by our team of marketing professionals and used across various marketing media and advertising platforms.

State-of-the-Art HD & 4K Video Tours

Potential buyers can access a 24/7 open house from the comfort of their own home, courtesy of our high definition state-of-the-art video tours. Working exclusively with Faris Team, Barrie Video Tours capture walk-throughs of your home in vivid detail. Our professional videos make a lasting impression and result in more qualified and serious buyers visiting your home.

Your home video tour is posted to a variety of Real Estate platforms including MLS/Realtor.ca, YouTube, RoyalLePage.ca and FarisTeam.ca. The video is accessible to thousands of Realtors® and potential buyers who wish to preview homes for their clients. This additional exposure is especially beneficial to show agents who are not able to preview your home in person.

Twilight Photography

There is something spectacular about beautiful estates showcased in the evening, and very few potential buyers get to fully appreciate this perspective, since most showings occur in the daytime. Twilight photos are rarely seen on Realtor.ca (MLS) and are very attractive and stand out from the competition.

All of our Prestigious Properties receive a professional twilight photography session, with an evening presentation of the property. Many invest significantly into lighting their home, including lit gazebos, pools, hot-tubs, pathways and gardens. Our twilight photographs capture this incredible evening appeal, so that potential buyers can fall in love with your property.

Aerial Videography & Photography

Faris Team specializes in professional aerial videography and photography. Aerial photography and videography is safe, quiet, and the best way to provide potential buyers with a complete look at your entire property (if suitable). Barrie Video Tours, exclusively working with Faris Team, are specialists with the remote-controlled quadcopter, and have experience shooting nearly 1000 home video tours. Barrie Video Tours is Transport Canada approved and operates with a special flight operations certificate issued from Transport Canada.
