roswell: George, The Good News Realtor - 08/11/07 05:24 PM
Is it Bad News; or is it Good News? The Realtor that advises their listing clients to have a Home Staging Consultation prior to publicly listing their home on MLS knows they are delivering good news, not bad. These Realtors know how to make lemonade, time and time again! Realtors are continually in client situations where they have to deliver bad news. It can be a challenge, chiefly because Realtors have an obligation to deliver honesty to a potential client while, at the same time, trying to capture and earn that client's trust and confidence. When a Realtor goes to a listing appointment and (16 comments)
Remember the movie, Groundhog Day, with Bill Murray? In 2006, Groundhog Day was added to the United States National Film Registry as being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." Having your house on the market is the same as living in the real estate version of this classic flick. Everyday you must wake up and make the beds, wipe down all the counters, clear any dishes, sparkle up the faucets, hide the bath towels, tuck away any pending laundry, tidy up the toys, make the floors shimmer, and, well, you know the drill. The list goes on and on, because today may be (1 comments)
roswell: House Hunting? Are you skeptical of a staged home? - 07/19/07 02:21 PM
Home buyers look at multiple homes when surfing the market. Generally they look on the Internet first in the comfort of their home or Realtor's® office, then they head out for an excursion tour guided by their Realtor® hoping to find the family solution that fulfills their dreams for daily living. Sometimes buyers, some Realtors as well, feel that if a home is staged, the sellers are trying to "fool" the lookers; trying to cover up something, or they are trying to trick the buyers into thinking the home is larger than it is. Home Staging is actually just the opposite! The purpose (13 comments)
roswell: Avoid Displaying Your Home Office in the Master Suite - 07/19/07 12:47 PM
Even setting up a small personal office in the master bedroom suite dilutes the mood of privacy and relaxation. BEFORE -- AFTER -- In this Atlanta area home, staging simply required rearranging the location of the desk, depersonalizing the space, and adding a seating arrangement. Now a potential buyer can appreciate the benefit this space brings to the master suite. This bay window nook took on a tranquil feeling and displays a sense of privacy for reading and personal time. Small tapestries above the windows were used to show off the height of the ceilings and add a splash of color. For more tips (8 comments)
roswell: Home Staging for the Average Joe - 07/13/07 01:42 PM
Everybody knows the average Joe. Although the average Joe varies from region to region across the country, you can bet you know him where you live. Most of us are friends with, and do business with, the average Joe. In fact, most of us ARE the average Joe. The average Joe in the state of Georgia lives in a $235,000 home. The average Joe in Georgia moves every 7 years. The average Joe lists his home with a Realtor when it's time to market his home. The average Joe sifts and sorts through pictures of available homes on the Internet when wanting to (11 comments)
