There's a book out called something like  "Eat that Frog!

stagedhomescom: Why Buyers Must Stage in a Buyer's Market! - 06/10/10 07:21 PM
IThree Good Reasons to Stage in a Buyer's Market are  - Sold -  Sold -  Sold  !!!
 
Said another way three reasons are to get to "S O L D "
1) FASTER, 2)  QUICKER, AND 3) LESS STRESS.
Does anyone remember being in school gym class where team captains got to pick the players for their team and  the best players were always picked first for the team sports and those of us not so athletic always prayed we wouldn't be picked last or even next to last?  Fair or not, that is the way it is.

stagedhomescom: FROM BACHELOR PAD TO STAGED PIZZAZZ in ABILENE TEXAS! - 05/11/10 09:21 PM
I really did it.  This Saturday,  I got up at 7:00 a.m. loaded the car and finished loading a pull behind trailer and was at the house to be staged at 8:30 a.m.  All was on schedule except for some details, the owner had been too tired to pack his car so there was STUFF in the living room and the Master bedroom.   I assured the seller, no problem, let's stash it in the garage or the Master closet.
With that problem solved, then it was on to vacuuming and cleaning kitchen cabinets and bathrooms.  The seller pitched in recruited volunteers, too bad there was … (5 comments)

STAGED & SOLD ARE 2 SWEET WORDS!
  THIS HOUSE DID NOT MAKE WWW.STAGEDHOMES.COM AS IT SOLD TO THE 2ND PERSON WHO SAW IT AFTER A STAGING DECOR PACKAGE WAS PUT IN PLACE.
Staging really works.  The staging plan was to stage the fireplace, the dining table in the house, and use a vignette in the kitchen and the bath. When I saw the bookcase in the living I knew it needed a little something not to look so bleak and empty.  Here's an example of using only a minimal amount of staging decor that led to a SOLD home!

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.
