My ad is in the Buiness and professional section of the Abilene Reporter News offering STAGING CONSULTATIONS.  
NOW WHAT IS A STAGING CONSULTATION?  
A Staging consultation is a step-by-step plan written detailed report  on how to prepare your property for the market to sell faster and for more money.  The consultation will cover the property from curb to curb and give recommendationshow to showcase the house to appeal to the most buyers.   If there are extensive repairs or potential remodeling to be completed a stager might recommend doing a cost/benefit analysis of  those options before the staging begins.

beverly carlson: Shower Curtains and Staging! - 06/25/10 05:34 PM

If your house is for sale and there is no tub enclosure and there's a shower head over the tub, an inexpensive staging trick is
to update your shower curtain and rod and and don't forget the curtain rings.
My favorite stores in Abilene for shower curtains are Target, KMart, or Family Dollar.   They are my favorites because they are the only places I have bought shower curtains.  Walmart has shower curtains, but mainly I just buy shower rods from them.
Yesterday I was in KMart, looking at you guessed it the shower curtains,  and there was a young couple deliberating their choice of … (13 comments)

beverly carlson: WHAT DOES A HOME STAGER DO? - 01/10/10 04:53 AM
 
WHAT DOES A HOME STAGER DO?
 
1.  A home stager will see your home with fresh eyes. 
2.  A home stager will see your home the way a buyer will and communicate what a buyer wants.3.  First, if the home is preowned, the home stager will identify any repairs that must be done prior to showing to buyers.
4.  Next, a professional home stager will recommend paint colors that buyers want.
5.  Then a home stager will identify what clutter must go.  It will be more than you think, I promise!
A local professional organizer, Cappy Phipps, recommends … (2 comments)

My Blog is about my real estate career of buying, selling, leasing, managing properties, and home staging. I can help anyone in Abilene, Texas to buy or sell or manage properties or stage properties. My passion is staging because it is the premier marketing strategy to get to "SOLD" in the shortest amount of time. Staging a home leads to more showings which leads to more offers. Staging is part of my marketing plan for selling and leasing. I stage for other Realtors and homeowners. I stage both vacant and occupied properties. I do model homes and model apts. Big or small, I stage them all.
