I'm asked often by homeowners, as well as agents, as to whether or not there's value in staging a condominium on the market.My answer is the same whether I'm addressing a million dollar listing or a two bedroom condo:  Home Staging helps to separate your home or listing from the others on the mar...

Recently I have worked with several individuals that have had the responsibility of selling a home where a family member had passed away.  I know we have all heard the stories about things dragging on and on.  Well, I wanted you to know that is not always the case.  In Cobb County, we are fortuna...

I often speak of the importance of showcasing the features as well as the space a home has to offer.  Because I'm a visual person, I thought it best to provide an example of what I'm referring to.As you can see below, the couch faces the two chairs.  This layout makes perfect sense when you don't...

As I explain to my prospects, the process of staging an occupied home is simple.  Using a home I completed yesterday, I've taken the liberty of inserting pictures to further explain what the process is like.  I hope this helps anyone considering having their home professionally staged.Step 1:  A ...

Whether in the millions or in the mid 200's - all homes can benefit from home staging.  Here's a home I staged last Friday.  Exterior:Here's an interior "before" picture.  As you can see, renovations were still underway:Here's the "after" picture.  Sorry for the different angle.  The owners were ...

Whether small or large, all homes can benefit from Staging.  Why?  Because staging provides the best opportunity to have the prospective buyers remember the home.   Given the volume of the homes on the market, this becomes an important element in helping to get the home sold more quickly.Here's a...

Give them something to connect to on an emotional level and they're bound to stay longer.  The longer they linger, the better chance we have of the prospective buyer making an offer.  When homes are empty, the prospective buyer has a tendency to zip through the home and before you know it, they'r...

Barb Schwarz, with StagedHomes.com, has coined the phrase Clutter Eats Equity.   I couldn't agree more.  When asked by Jeff Aughey with Alpha Homes to view this townhome to determine what the home needed from a staging perspective, the solution came quite quickly.As you'll see in the "before" pic...

Don't get me wrong, I like the color blue.  In fact as a small child, when asked what my favorite color was I instantly replied with "blue."  Now having said that, I will openly admit that times have changed and it no longer is a favored color.   While I like the color, my new favorite is GREEN. ...

Yesterday, as I finished up staging an occupied home, I overheard the Realtor say to the homeowner the following:  "It's Beautiful."  He quickly added the following question:  "Will it be possible to keep it this way while you have it on the market?"On the surface, it may appear challenging to ke...

Nothing fancy... but what a difference minor changes can make to the "feel" of the room.Case in point - take this bathroom.  As you'll see in the "before" picture there's nothing spectacular about the bathtub area.  In fact, if I were a prospective buyer, I'd likely take a glance and carry-on wit...

For me personally, I have found that bedding can literally make or break the look of the room.  As a result, I find I spend an incredible amount of time looking for the right set to showcase the room.My objective with masters is really no different than any other room.  I want to provide a visual...

Preparing your home for the market doesn't have to be made difficult.  For some rooms, it can take as little as 5 items to make a significant difference.  Remember, the objective in home staging is to create a warm and enticing home that the prospective buyers can emotionally connect to.Knowing w...

Given the importance of the listing photos on MLS and the impact staging a home can have, I can't think of a better combination.Two weeks ago, while on my way to see a prospect, I had received a call from a professional photographer who had found my web site on the internet.   Her timing couldn't...
