home staging tips: Home Selling Tips: Stage the Exterior! - 05/19/17 11:07 AM

Selling your home this spring? Don't forget to stage the exterior! With a bit of thought you can make your Minneapolis/St Paul home standout on all those real estate websites. Homes with great staging sell quickly and for top dollar. Sunny warm weather has many buyers searching for their dream home. And they are not just on the looking online. Buyers drive by homes to check out the neighborhood and to see what each home's exterior looks like in person. During the winter a fresh blanket of snow and shoveled the sidewalk are enough to jazz up the exterior … (1 comments)

home staging tips: Why Home Staging is Important...Even When Inventory is Low - 11/21/16 05:18 AM
This adorable little St. Paul home sold in less than three weeks at over list price this fall. In order for this kind of success, my clients started working on their property several weeks prior. They cleaned, decluttered and repaired prior to listing their home. See, it’s a whole new ballgame for home sellers right now. 

True, there is less housing inventory in the greater Minneapolis/St Paul area, which is very good news. But in many communities, sellers can find themselves competing with new construction for buyers. But even cute starter homes like this need to "sparkle" in order … (1 comments)

Home buyers are poised and ready to purchase in the Twin Cities but there is very little housing inventory right now.

Home buyers are ready, but are you? Preparing a home for sale is not an easy task but it can be done quickly if necessary. If the perfect place to move comes on the market next week, would you be ready to … (0 comments)

home staging tips: Speechless Sunday (Almost)--Rustic or Rusty? - 03/08/15 08:29 AM

There's an often used saying, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". With vintage antique advertising this is especially true. The owner has this rusty old metal sign advertising 7up proudly displayed on the side of his St. Paul home. Others might consider it too rustic for display anywhere! Another saying,"One man's trash is another man's treasure". These are things to keep in mind when staging your home for sale. Your treasures may not be the best decor to display. Home buyers might think them too trashy.

home staging tips: Mr and Mrs Clean Live Here! - 02/26/15 07:01 AM
A home buyer should impressed by the cleanliness of your home from the moment they step over the threshold.  PERIOD!   While the first step in home staging is decluttering, the second is to be cleaning. Not just “surface clean” either.   A seller must DEEP clean the home!  Potential home buyers will be assessing your property to determine if it is THEIR dream home.  Whose dream includes a half-eaten peanut butter sandwich on the kitchen counter and a dirty cat box in the utility room?     Sadly, there are places sellers will overlook when too eager to get their home … (12 comments)
