judy heinrich home staging: Wallpaper Removal Really Does Make a Difference - 03/02/09 04:15 AM
You've no doubt heard it before, but it always bears repeating... Remove wallpaper prior to putting your house on the market.  I recently did a Walk & Talk Consultation for some sellers who had their house on the market for a very long time, 175 days. Overall, their house was in pretty good shape.  They had decluttered and maintained it well.  I suggested a few additional decor items, repositioned some furniture, etc.  Unfortunately, their previous agent told them it was okay to leave up the wallpaper that was in the diining room and entry (sorry no before photo of that space).  … (16 comments)

Sometimes a dated kitchen just needs to be redone!  Here's an example from a vacant townhouse I staged this past week.  The sellers had this property on the market for a long time.  They decided to take it off the market, update the kitchen, stage the property and put it back on the market.  I think the kitchen redo turned out fantastic!  Not a lot of buyers out there looking for blue formica countertops and those old '80s cabinets.  But now... the kitchen is sure to please!

judy heinrich home staging: Before & Afters of a Staging Consultation - Part 1 - 02/04/09 02:16 AM
My approach to staging a property that will be occupied while it is on the market always begins with a consultation.  I talked about this in my blog "What a Difference a Consultation Can Make" and truly believe great results are possible!  This is the first step in the staging process and gives the seller so much information that they can do it all themselves, or have me complete the tasks.  Sometimes I get called back to complete the work, sometimes the sellers try to do it all themselves.  Either way, the property always looks better than it did prior to … (17 comments)
