real estate: Sex, Dating and Real Estate Staging - 04/03/13 10:37 AM
Have a listing that’s pet-friendly? How about one that’s so private the homeowner can walk around naked? Maybe your listing is located in the heart of a fabulous party scene or has a unique selling feature like a luxurious soaking tub, culinary kitchen or indoor pool?
As the saying goes, sex sells. Sex today is used to market just about everything even if it has nothing to do with those three little letters S-E-X. Some real estate agents are using suggestive situations to enhance their listings while on the market with sexy listing photographs and video tours. From the shower to … (1 comments)

real estate: How Home Staging Works in a Vacant Space - 01/23/12 09:33 AM
This home on 201 East 83rd St. in NYC was a challenge, because the sellers didn't have a big budget to work with. The home sat on the market for over 6 months and went through the hands of 2 Realtors before they decided to stage the space. It sold in just 85 days after staging!

real estate: 80's Kitchen Nightmares - 12/30/11 03:29 AM
 80's Kitchen Nightmares...  The 1980s may be making a comeback in apparel, but forget about it ever coming back into your house. What were design guru's thinking Nagel prints, neon lights, nightclub paint colors and melamine oak striped cabinets? While some things are easier to replace than others, 1980's kitchens continue to haunt the housing market, especially now since buyers are looking for move-in ready homes.Buyers immediately start seeing dollar signs when they see melamine oak striped cabinets in the heart of the home. That type of dated decor can become a deal breaker for buyers,  so it's important for sellers to … (12 comments)

real estate: Tight Budget, No Match for this Vacant Space - 10/04/11 03:36 PM
We just finished up staging a one bedroom co-op in New York City. It's been on the market for nearly a year, the Realtor that referred us already had the listing for three months, she knew it was time to bring in a home stager.
To much surprise (I'm kidding) the sellers didn't want to spend alot of money on home staging, quite frankly what sellers do?
We took the challenge though and rented a sofa, rug and dining table with 2 chairs for Churchill. Then we added some key accessories to complete the rooms. The fabulous part that organic white … (9 comments)

This story was a win-win for everyone involved! We had a Realtor call Stylish Stagers, Inc. and asked us to stage a 1-bed Co-op on Adams St. in Brooklyn. When we began communicating with the seller, he mentioned that their was a falling out with his current real estate agent, so home staging was not a priority at the moment, if he didn't have anyone to represent his home.A few weeks went by and we followed-up with the seller, he still didn't have an agent so we referred him to one that we've worked with in his area. The … (6 comments)

real estate: Showcasing Positive Features In Ordinary Home - 02/25/11 07:28 AM
Part of a home stagers job during the intitial consultation is to go through the home and figure out the positive and negative aspects of a space. In any room of the house there should be a dramatic focal point that attracts your eye, but is that focal point pleasing to the eye? Does it have a positive connotation or a negative one?
A big entryway, built-in cabinets, kitchen islands, fireplaces, picture windows, hardwood these are all features that are special to a home. So, in order to make sure these features get noticed we have to downplay the negative aspects of the space.We all know the … (7 comments)

real estate: Holidays Are Upon Us - 09/27/10 10:25 AM
After decorating my front yard this past weekend as a scary cemetary complete with ghosts and ghouls for Halloween, it made me wonder what's best for home sellers to do during the holidays, decorate or not?
Sometimes it's hard enough to get sellers to agree to remove certain objects or tone-down accessories in their home or front lawn. So, when it comes time to decorate for Halloween, display piligrams and turkeys, set-up the menorah or Christmas lights and trees, what are stagers or even Realtors to do to make sure the home still appeals to buyers?

It's hard to imagine buyers receiving a good vibe on … (4 comments)
