The RESA Southeastern Michigan Chapter (RESA-SEM) is proud to announce that it is sponsoring a charity Home Staging event to be held April 24th and April 26th. This event will give Realtors and Michigan residents a chance to see how Home Staging can transform a home.  The RESA members will be staging a vacant house in Clawson, Michigan.  Realtors will be able to tour the house on Friday, April 24th.  The house will be open for public viewing Sunday, April 26th.  Participating Home Stagers will be on hand to answer questions, give advice and offer complimentary Home Staging Consultations to the winners of the raffle.  There will also be classic Detroit cars on display. All donations as well as proceeds from a lemonade stand will be donated to Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County. 

  Michigan stagers and RESA aren't just staging homes; they are staging the community they live in too. Several RESA-SEM members are also participating in the Habitat Women Build May 12th-16th.

Great idea Melody,

We have a Habitat for Humanity here: I may "borrow" this and fine tune it for our area.

Have a great time.  It should be fun.
