Staging Vanilla Boxes - 03/29/09 03:32 PM
Walk down the hall of this vacant house, look into the rooms and this is what you see. The rooms are freshly painted and carpeted. They are in mint condition, but they are bland. They have no character, and you can hardly tell which one is which.
They are three scoops of vanilla ice cream waiting to become a sundae. So let's get some toppings!
Home staging adds the character vacant houses need to be memorable and appealing to buyers. It shows the buyers the possibilities - staging makes the house feel like home! In the Orlando, Florida (7 comments)
StagersLIST.com Expo Reflections - 03/22/09 05:26 PM
Today is the first day of the rest of my business life. At the StagersLIST.com Expo in Orlando last week, I sat happily at the feet of some very wise and dynamic businesswomen, and it has already made a difference in how I view my business.

How would their furniture fit in there? So the realtor took action. She called Gloria Home Staging in to show the buyers how much space there really is in this small home. We (19 comments)
Staging Leads to 2d Look, Home Sells in 30 Days - 03/01/09 08:04 PM
This beautiful home in Oviedo, FL, went on the market on January 26, and was under contract on February 25. That's only 30 days! And Gloria Home Staging was an important part of that success. The buyer originally thought that some areas of the home were too small, but she loved the décor and staging so much that it brought her back for a second look. The staging helped make her want to live in this home, above all the others she saw. This is what she would have seen if the home had not been staged:
