home stager nh: I'm A Professional Home Stager, Not Your Parole Officer - 02/25/13 03:58 AM
 
One of my recent posts received this comment:
" If I have to stay there until the place is sold and it just doesn't feel like MINE anymore because half of my furniture and all of my personal items are in storage, I'd be VERY uncomfortable. "
They would be "very uncomfortable" living in a house that doesn't feel like theirs anymore.  
 Isn't the whole point of listing your house for sale to make it NO LONGER YOURS?  This got me thinking of all the excuses I've heard from my clients...

New Hampshire Home Staging Tips For Preparing Your Bathrooms For Sale

How important is the appearance of your bathroom when it comes to selling your house?
One of the most important rooms to prepare and present prior to listing your home for sale is the bathroom....especially the master bathroom.
Ask any professional Home Stager and they will tell you that buyers want "move-in ready" condition.  What they don't want is to remodel a bathroom.
 No other room in a house is more personal in nature.  Logically, buyers know that sellers use the bathroom...  but emotionally, they prefer not to be reminded … (19 comments)

Don't Waste Your Time Trying To Stage Your New Hampshire Home
There are some things that you just shouldn't try to do on your own.  Home Staging is one of them.  Watching HGTV "all the time" does not a home stager make.

NH Home Staging - Before & After Pics...Not What You Expect!

Most of the New Hampshire sellers that call me for a home staging consult have no idea what to expect.
 Home Staging as portrayed on TV is not exactly true to life. 
A two hour consult involves a room-by-room walk through with suggestions on improving overall appearance and appeal.  Whevever possible things are changed on the spot, but for the most part the sellers are left with a prioritized to-do list to complete on their own.
Most clients expect a complete makeover and although their home will look completely … (18 comments)
