home staging northern kentucky: Find Your Passion - 02/20/11 04:11 PM

It's Sunday night and I am fortunate enough to look forward to my work week.  Over 7 years ago I was bit by the entrepreneurial bug and started Design To Market.  We have been staging Cincinnati homes for over 7 years and at last count have staged over 1,000 homes.  I love what I do and I love what it lets me do!  Tonight I just made my 55th loan to Kiva.  According to Kiva's website they:
"empower individuals to lend to an entrepreneur across the globe. By combining microfinance with the Internet, Kiva is creating a global community of people … (10 comments)

home staging northern kentucky: Cincinnati: Investors Staged Home Sells In 3 Weeks! - 06/14/10 04:11 PM
It is exciting to share another Cincinnati home staging success story.  We staged this investment property in Westchester in mid May and it went pending in 3 weeks.  Look at this room...

Or maybe this one...

And now think about this statistic.  There are over 75 homes in this price range in West Chester on the market today!  What made this home sell while over 75 others are still waiting?  Many factors made the difference (nice floor plan, great renovation, wonderful wood floors, etc.) your home might offer one or many of these features.  But, is it staged?!  Talk to your realtor about … (10 comments)

home staging northern kentucky: Design To Market Stages 3 Cincinnati Homes in One Day! - 02/06/10 07:55 AM
                                    

Design To Market is staging homes in Cincinnati. (lots of them!)
The real estate market is really picking up!  Homes are selling and buyers are picky.  Take a look at the Design To Market entourage as we leave the warehouse on our way to stage 3 homes in a new development.  The homes are beautiful but builders and Realtors alike understand that adding interest to a vacant home increases showings and also creates faster sales!
Adding furnishings not only defines the spaces but it increases activity as prospective buyers search the web to create a shopping list.  Which spaces would entice you … (10 comments)

home staging northern kentucky: Design To Market 3 Cincinnati Staged Homes Sell in under 30 Days - 07/07/09 04:17 PM
3 quotes-3 Cincinnati Home Sellers-3 Months! 
All of these homes have sold in the last 90 days.  The common thread was a fear that the current market would prevent them from selling their homes and that they decided to take control.  All three clients worked hard to put their best foot forward and sold in less than 30 days after staging with Design to Market Home Staging.   Read their stories!
Client #1
My house was for sale for 2 years and after Design to Market added their decorating touch it sold in just 30 days! They incorporated some of my … (4 comments)

home staging northern kentucky: A Home Stagers Count Down to the Spring of 2009 - 11/10/08 11:30 AM
 


The election has passed and we are all looking optimistically for change.  Change in the economy, change in financial markets and most importantly...change in the housing market. 
What is a seller to do?  There are many theories on best times to capture a buyer.  Spring, Summer, Fall or even winter:  A buyer is a buyer if they need to buy.  Corporate transferees, changes in family status, successful sale of a home that has been on the market...all of these are perfect reasons for a buyer to buy.  Keeping this in mind it is critical to have a 2 pronged … (15 comments)

home staging northern kentucky: Home Staging In A Web Based World - 11/03/08 11:28 AM
I want to first remind my readers of a blog post that I wrote over a year ago titled Before and Afters In A Web Based World.  Both homes featured in that article sold quickly after staging and much of the success of these sales was attributed to staging.
In our current competitive environment the impact of home staging continues to grow in importance.  As we head toward the spring market and see more listings come forth it will be critical to grab buyers who make effective use of their time by pre-screening those listings that fit their buying criteria.  
Please look … (11 comments)

home staging northern kentucky: Home Staging Northern Kentucky: Over 18 months vacant...staged and sold in 3 weeks! - 08/02/08 09:17 AM
Home staging in Northern Kentucky works!  We recently staged this nearly vacant property in Independence Kentucky and with a slow and painful previous 18 months on the market the investment in staging generated multiple offers in 3 weeks!
     

 
The truly exciting story with this success was the fact that the Realtor had provided basic furnishings to the home but realized the need to take the staging to the next level.  Enter Design To Market Home Staging and our wide range of inventory items and the partnership took off.  The Realtor saved their client staging costs by providing some items … (12 comments)
