Selling Your New Hampshire Home - The Magic Of Mulch Preparing your house for sale is stressful, and it's a lot of work. But, if you make the effort to do it right, the ordeal doesn't have to last quite as long. It helps to think of your house as a product that requires strategic marketing. Retailers display products in visually appealing packaging for good reason. Your house, and surrounding property, require sprucing up if you want it to appeal to buyers. When it comes to curb appeal there's no greater bang for your buck than mulch. Mulch is to the exterior (32 comments)

Warning! The Mistake Many Sellers Make Relisting In The Spring Are you one of the many sellers who took their house off the market last winter, intending to relist in the spring? If so, it's almost time....and you could be making a very costly mistake. Do you know what the problem was when you first listed so you can avoid repeating it?

selling new hampshire home: This New Hampshire Stager Prefers Selling The Hard Way! - 12/29/11 08:06 AM
Being a professional Home Stager in Portsmouth, New Hampshire I'm no stranger to giving advice to sellers. Now that my house is on the market I can honestly say, I prefer giving the advice to actually living it. Living in "sell mode" is not for the faint of heart! Keeping your house show ready is a lot of work!
When you list your house for sale, you are transported from the real world to an uncomfortable, inconvenient fantasy land where soap and towels aren't used and cabinets and closets now carry only a fraction of what you actually own and (34 comments)

Advice From A New Hampshire Home Stager - Don't Sell Your HOME As a professional home stager in New Hampshire, I've seen too many sellers make this major real estate marketing mistake.

It may appear initially to be smooth sailing, but you could find yourself in way over your head quite fast. Instead of "For Sale By Owner" fsbo could, in many cases, stand for "Fast Sinking - Best Offer"

selling new hampshire home: Why Would Anyone Buy Your Old Shoes? - Advice From A NH Home Stager - 05/05/09 04:26 PM
Many sellers are incapable of seeing their house from a buyer's perspective and remain clueless as to why there haven't been any showings or offers. If you are serious about selling your house, you need to ask yourself this question, "Who would want to buy my old shoes?" Over the years, a house becomes victim to the lifestyle of it's occupants. Furniture ends up arranged for comfort and convenience. Maintenance falls behind due to lack of money, time or motivation. Vacations and expenses are priority over home improvement projects. For most homeowners, with stressful schedules, and busy lifestyles, home decor and style are at the bottom of their priority list.
