Take something great and make it Greater!  
The home stagers at Design To Market followed our formula for success in working with the owner of this great Cincinnati home.  With a full page of "to-do" items and a willingness to work hard this seller followed the recipe and had his home under contract in under 10 days.  The 3 part strategy focused on the following:
The homeowner decluttered and cleaned the home from top to bottom The Design To Market stagers added the decorative touches with artwork and accessories that gave this great home a finished look that would grab prospective … (10 comments)

reo: If You're Paying Too Much For Gas Read This! - 03/02/11 01:57 PM

If you work in real estate you probably drive...ALOT!  These gas prices are terrible and getting worse.   I learned about a mobile app today that I am really excited about.  It is called and it is a free app (at least on my Droid.)  It identifies your location with the GPS on your phone and tells you the cheapest nearby location to purchase gas.
I used it today and found a spot that was $.10 cheaper than my normal gas station.  
I am always looking for other ways to save...PLEASE SHARE!!!!!

reo: Investors Make Staging A Part of Their Business Plan - 02/24/11 06:41 AM

What do the photos shown above all have in common? 
Each of these homes was rehabbed and these Cincinnati real estate investors have included home staging in their marketing plans as a strategic way to insure that their homes sold quickly and for top dollar.   The price range in the homes pictured above was between $110,000 and $180,000.  These homes were located in the following neighborhoods:  Kenwood, Covedale, Madeira, Anderson, Oakley, and Bridgetown.  Most importantly, they were under contract in an average of 15 days after listing.
Staging makes sense for all types of home sellers:  … (8 comments)

reo: Staging Through The Eyes of a Buyer: Part 2 - 01/05/11 03:58 PM

"I wish the walls could talk!"  I think this is the mantra of many that are involved in the process of selling a home.  Sometimes, it is assumed to be a price  issue.  Often though, a new lower price does not solve the problem.  More times than not, it is more subtle and requires the team work of a Realtor, a homeowner, and a home stager.  
I recently wrote a post titled Staging Through The Eyes of A Buyer in which a Realtor shared a buyer's comments about his pleasure as a buyer in purchasing a staged home.  

reo: 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)

reo: How To Handle The End Of The Tax Credit - 04/25/10 03:46 PM
The Cincinnati Real Estate Market has been positively impacted by the home buyer’s tax credit.  Home staging in Cincinnati has become an integral part of the selling process.  However, many sellers rushed to get their homes on the market.  For some, the rush to “just get it on the market” may have taken precedence over getting the house ready for the market. When the tax credit option ends April 30th, it will be necessary for those who haven’t yet sold their homes to look back at what they’ve learned, and go forward with the information armed and ready to sell.  … (4 comments)
