The Details of Staging (Kim's Blog)

Home Stager
Kimberly Wester's experiences, views and tutorials on staging in the real estate industry, with a focus on educating the RE industry on the benefits of home staging and bringing the staging community together under a united message.
Yesterday morning, I was scheduled to perform consulting duties for one of my favorite RE agents.  The particular client I was scheduled to meet with is notably motivated to sell their home as their new custom home is near completion (it will be move in ready in approximately 2 weeks).  Because o...
No matter what hot topics may temporarily sidetrack us, a continuing theme in the SIF community is moving our industry forward.  This past week, there were quite a few posts designed to do just that. In an effort to continue what Craig and Yvonne started, SIF has joined forces with RESA to put on...
It has been the topic of discussion many times - why did my blog get deleted?  Why do we have to be monitored?  Isn't this censorship? I don't think it's fair...and so on and so forth. To set the record straight once and for all, I  thought I would write and post a 'guide' of sorts to help everyo...
In case you missed it, and the date on this post is confusing you, this is a 2 week review.  A lot of things have happened here at SIF in the last two weeks. We had a Big Debate. Some called it heated, and it may have been, but I don't read comments much with so many blogs to read.   It seemed a ...
My apologies again for not having the week in review up.  If you have been on AR today, you know there are many glitches with the new features they have added. I am crossing both fingers that you see this post, because I have not been able save a draft in any of the 5 times I have attempted to do...
Well, sorry to say that there isn't one at the moment. You may have noticed that I have not posted the last two. Thanks to Kathleen Garvey and Karen Dembsky for covering those while I attended the All American Soapbox Derby Championships with my family (my youngest competed in the stock division)...
Sometimes we all feel like in promoting and actually doing our staging work, we are banging our heads against the wall.  We ask ourselves why we understand the what and why of staging when so many others take so much longer to get it.  Or don't at all. This was a week where there seemed to be a l...
My daughter races a soapbox derby car. Recently she won her local event and was awarded the once in a lifetime opportunity to attend the All American Soapbox Derby Championship in Akron, Ohio. Now, I confess that as supportive as I was of this pastime, I am not much involved in it.  My husband us...
Sometimes, you have to chose between your business and your life.  I'm not talking about whether you chose to breathe or stage, I'm talking about making a choice to continue your business as is or change to better suit the needs of your personal life. Over the past few months, I have known this c...
Conveniently located just off of State Road 49 in Chesterton, Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve is both an amazingly peaceful spot for a picnic or a nature walk and a nature photographers paradise. Carefully planted with native foliage and wildflowers, it is also sprinkled with genius landscaping, ...
