Oregon Realtor Todd Clarke and I have never met, but through AR he has shown me the way to a fabulous new marketing vehicle I think is my new best friend...or is Todd my new best friend for showing it to me? Hmmmm...Anyway, I want to share with you. Perhaps you are already familiar with what can be done with Photobucket Slideshows (have you seen Todd's fabulous show of old timey barns on his profile page?) So if you already know Photobucket, then hopefully you’d be curious about the staging we do here at Key Elements. Here’s our newest marketing tool….
The house you see here is currently on the market for $539,000.00 and contains an all new collection of furniture, plus we consulted on just about everything there was to decide on for this project…exterior color, interior color, flooring, carpet, tile, granite, lighting, deck material, room addition plans and more! It was a complete fixer, so I know you know what the “before” shots looked like! Kitchens and baths were gutted and reconfigured and all the wallpaper had to go! We call this our Complete Staging Concept, or sometimes I will call it Deep Staging for the fun of coining a term.
So anyway I am working on a number of presentations with Photobucket and am so thrilled with the many uses of this web based photo service, of which there are more than I know. Check it out at www.photobucket.com.

Here is a sidenote I believe will be of interest... All of those familiar with the project who were shown the slideshow, including the contractor, realtor and me, had no issues with the speed of the show. We were used to seeing those images. Familiars. But almost all of those below new to the project wanted more time to soak up the details. Doesn't this illustrate why home sellers need stagers? Homesellers' familiarity with their homes creates the need for stagers to help focus the buyer so they too can soak up the details!
