Buyer's Agents: Am I Missing Something? - 09/10/07 11:13 AM
I just finished reading Ines's featured blog Working Without a Realtor. There were 71 comments that I waded thru, and if you haven't taken the time to do the same, you should. Another excellent blog is Janie Coffey's The Benefits of Working With a Realtor That Specializes in Your Area. Ki Gray has written Why Use a Realtor?. Now please don't get mad. I'm a consumer with a question! This is not an attack on my agent friends here or any kind of personal charge, it's just a consumer question.

TV is Gone & Ugly Wires Staring at You? Check Out These Electronic Props For Home Staging - 09/05/07 04:39 PM
Did the seller take the TV off the wall and leave ugly wires hanging out? No problem, buy a fake one to replace it! If you're staging a home office or even a kitchen desk area, it's nice to have a fake laptop to stage with. The one I bought from Props by IDM is lightweight and pretty realistic. The "screen" can be changed to black for the "off" look. So if you need a fake TV prop, fake PC computer prop, fake laptop prop, check this company out! Props by IDM is located at 1000 Meyer Drive, Crystal Lake, IL (36 comments)
