Easy Staging guidelines for Success--Sell your home fast-- - 12/05/07 08:24 AM
A staged home look better than competing homes for sale in your local market. This allow you to sell it faster and at a fair price. As a Realtor and an ASP ( Accredited Staging Professional) I'd like to seat and explain my clients easy tips to prepare the house and succeed. There are some advantages with Staging, one is being recognized by other realtors - they will show your home more than other homes not staged- staged homes are recognized by Buyers too. Staged homes will look better, brighter and with more curb appeal. When listing a house I do (4 comments)
Is ACTIVE RAIN an active " RAIN"? - 12/03/07 07:18 PM
Is AR a matter of competition between agents.. What do you think? You post a profile, you update it with more description, you post on a daily basis, you don't copy or cheat on others........and all for what? For points, for positioning, for self challenge, to fight, battle, hunter??? What for?? I believe that in the race to gain acceptance, respect and power we are making ourselves more vulnerable to the others. Look this i.e. I was criticized twice for looking young in my personal picture...looking young does not necessarily mean not experienced - being young means only looking young. Being young or adult or (17 comments)
NAR designations ..yes or no? - 12/03/07 02:55 PM
Some of us found the way to learn more by paying extra and taking different classes and passing exams to earn additional designations-certification. For example GRI graduates- they need a lot of time, money and constance to pass and finish the graduation requirements required by the NAR ( 90 hours -more or less) they deserve all my respect. The Realtor (TM) license is based on a training and study of Florida laws, etc, and, not everybody is willing to give more of his/her time and invest in certifications. The most important thing is to be educated and earn these designations provided by them - not to earn extra (8 comments)
