I know that I've done several blogs on the importance of staging and curb appeal.  Why?  Because it could mean the difference between selling and not selling your home.  Plus, these articles are more meaningful when you are going through the process yourself.  Today, I'm cleaning my office, stain...

I learned this saying from a conference I attended and I absolutely love it.  Life is what it is.  For real estate, the market is what it is.  Everyone knows it's a buyer's market.  Everyone is trying to negotiate and get the best deal.  And for some, homes are staying on the market a lot longer ...
