You are including WHAT in the home sellers presentation? - 02/29/08 06:59 PM
I am giving a presentation tomorrow for a group of home sellers in our area. I have done this a few times for a local Realtor that I work with and it has been a very successful marketing tool for both of us. She markets the presentation to home sellers that have expressed interest in her services or to people that she has met at open houses and I give a talk about staging and tips on how to prepare home for sale. It is a win-win for both of us- once she gets the listing she includes my services as (26 comments)
Home Staging gives rooms a new purpose in Wayne, PA - 02/24/08 12:12 PM
Below are some photos of a home we staged this week in Wayne Pennsylvania. The home is lovely and has lots of curb appeal, a new kitchen and new bathrooms and is located in award winning Radnor School District. The home seller had done a great job of decorating the home however she has two young toddlers and the way they were using the rooms did not best showcase how buyers could best use each space. I love these photos because they really show that when you are selling your home you need to consider the purpose for each space. Take a look for yourself- The home is open (8 comments)

Extra extra read all about it! Home Staging is featured in this month's issue of Main Line Today magazine as a means to help home sellers market their homes.

I want to personally thank Senior Editor Tara Behan for including me in this story and also congratulate the area Realtors I work with that were part of this story: Scott Furman, Remax Classic St. (5 comments)
Home Sellers- Are you ready for Spring Market? Here's Proof Home Staging Helps Home Sellers in the Philadelphia Region - 02/18/08 05:53 PM
Today I got a phone call from a client that even surprised me ... her home had sold for asking in less than three weeks! The reason I was so surprised is that traditionally the Real estate season in our area does not pick up until March 1st. We had staged this home in January with the theory that it would be ready for the start of the market and pick up any traffic that was looking before the big rush. I have to give my seller a huge pat on the back for really understanding what it takes to market (7 comments)

Fortunately the real estate market in Philadelphia has not suffered as much as other areas across the country. Even with snow on the ground now home sellers are already getting their homes ready for Spring Market. That is why it was I was not surprised when I got a call last week from a local Realtor that I work with on the Main Line. She asked me to come over and take a look at her listing. I explained that my children were home because it was a snow day and that I would have to come the following week. Normally (10 comments)
