You do not want a wrinkled nose and the comment 'What is that smell?!' from a Buyer when they step into your home.                         Buyers use all their senses when they view homes. They rely heavily on 'Sight' but don't forget about their sense of 'Smell'.  Cooking Odors are the most comm...
The Holiday Season is approaching fast and your house is on the market. Do you have to forget decorating this year? After all, the Staging shows say the house has to be neutral and decluttered. The answer is definitely NOT!                               Help the Buyers imagine spending Christmas ...
                                No matter what size of home you are selling, a sense of space is a must.

Here are some things not to ig...
I've written before about the importance of your home 'speaking' to the buyer as they view it. Today let's talk about the male buyers out there. I was just consulting on a home with a very feminine feel to it. Every room was beautifully accessorized with throw pillows, flowers, art etc. When we g...
