vacant home staging: Two Homes, Two Different Price Points with the same results - SOLD - 09/22/09 02:11 PM
I recently posted a blog Professional Home Staging is NOT Just for the Luxury Home Market, where I listed some of our recent successes under the $400,000 price point.  Just today I found out that two more of our very recently staged homes have gone under contract, which proves my point that professional staging should be considered for EVERY price point.
Three weeks ago we staged a spec home for a Custom Home Builder in Chapel Hill NC, listed at $1,175,000.  After languishing on the market for over 200 days the builder had us come stage the property.  Three weeks later they are under … (17 comments)

vacant home staging: From Confusing to Spectacular! - 08/10/07 02:33 PM
A high profile Realtor called me to consult with her about one of her properties.  She was about to list a home, but she could not figure out how one of the rooms should function.  She has been in Real Estate for 22 years and has a great eye for things, but the awkward design of this room was very Confusing.  Upon entering the home there is a long (very long) foyer which leads to what seems to be dead space in the home without a purpose.  The builder thought it maybe should be a Den of some sort (can you … (33 comments)
