cincinnati home staging: Home Stager Looks At Curb Appeal: Depersonalizing the Personal - 08/13/08 09:05 AM
                
They're Popular...They're Attractive...They're Inappropriate when you're trying to sell your home!
As home stagers in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky we are increasingly coming across attractive personalized elements in our clients front yards.  It struck me as we left our second home this week where we recommended removing one of these items that this may be something often overlooked by home sellers as they prepare their homes for the market. 
Most homeowners now understand the need to remove family photos and religious items as they prepare to sell...but what about the engraved boulder in the front yard?  As home stagers we … (14 comments)

cincinnati home staging: Call a bedroom a bedroom! - 01/30/08 01:53 PM
We are often working with empty nesters and individuals that have decided to turn their homes' bedrooms into other more creative spaces.  In a home that is owner occupied this can become confusing as the inventory of spaces to match the family of a prospective buyer gets jumbled by other purposes for these spaces.  It is often inexpensive to turn a craft room, a second office or even an empty space back into a bedroom.  It is important for 2 reasons:
If the room borders on small the addition of a bed and a simple nightstand will give definition to the space availability.If … (14 comments)

                                         A prospective client called Design To Market in crisis mode...they were about to lose the home of their dreams if they could not sell their current home.  They were desperate for help creating the right look for the kitchen in their otherwise updated and well maintained home.  The asking price was modest but expectations were high in this up and coming neighborhood.  80's dusty blue, damaged vinyl and a dated border were not enticing to the prospective buyer.  The needed offer was not materializing.  The challenge...

cincinnati home staging: Mason Condo: One Year On The Market Enter Design To Market LLC and Home Sells in 21 days! - 07/27/07 04:06 PM
 
                               
 
            
The following quote tells the story!
Jo,
My house has been on the market for a year with no offers.  Since I had moved before listing it, there was no furniture when we had the showings.  My realtor suggested I stage it and contacted your company to do the work.  I agreed with your suggestions to give it "eye appeal".  The furnishings were lovely and just enough to show perspective buyers how beautiful the house is when decorated.   In just 3 weeks the house sold!  Without your services I would probably still be waiting for an offer.   EYE … (7 comments)

cincinnati home staging: Wallpaper: Remove it for a faster sale! - 07/15/07 10:30 AM
 
  
  
It's a tough decision to make.  Beautiful wallpaper professionally hung and in perfect condition.  We often face this dilemma as we review options with our clients.  It is expensive to remove wallpaper and often painful for the home-seller...I would say however that it is almost always the correct decision. 
This kitchen was in a beautiful condo that we staged in Cincinnati.  Along with furnishing selected rooms in this condo we also recommended broadening the appeal of the property by removing wallpaper and painting over faux finishes.  It was a tough decision for the homeowner to make but after months on the market, a quick sale and … (6 comments)

cincinnati home staging: Home Staging Cincinnati: Vacant properties - 04/17/07 12:35 PM
We are increasingly receiving calls from Realtors to stage homesin Cincinnati that are getting "hits" on MLS but very few showings.  Vacant homes often fall prey to this challenge.  It is difficult to drive interest in four walls and a few windows.   
Today's buyer works to be most efficient in allocating their buying time to those that make the "MLS cut."  For this reason as home stagers in the Cincinnati area we are continually working to insure that our staged properties present a tempting view to that first and so critical review on the Internet.
