Sex and Staging, My First Diary Post

Home Stager with The Stager Diaries

I never knew staging homes could involve so much sex! Today I arrived to remove my items from a home that had sold and found my formerly brand new bedding no longer quite so pristine.  Was it the The Realtor? The Builder? The Home Seller? The new Buyers taking a test drive?

I would have put on the HazMat suit and deposited that bedding right in the dumpster!  Nasty!

Kimo's suggestion (in a previous post) said to use boxsprings instead of mattresses.  The bed may look comfy, but guests will need a good chiropractor when finished.

Welcome to Active Rain! This is a great website for building your business, as well as learning from others.  Pat yourself on the back, because you made a GREAT choice in joining the blogosphere!

Write often, and write whatever comes to mind.  Blogs about personal topics and non-real estate items are often the best.  It helps your readers to bond with you, and ends up bringing you a lot of business!

Good luck with your future blogging.  If you'd like more info on points in Active Rain, I wrote a blog about it (click here). Feel free to ask me any questions if you need a hand!

Don't you just feel violated? I had this happen to me.... Not only was the bed messed up, the candles were burned, the wine opened and wine glasse used (they were in the bathroom by the gardent tub) and the towles were used!!! To top it all off - the realtors tried to cover it up by washing and returning the towles....with lent on them!
