When I started Home Matters, home staging and redesign in 2004, it wasn’t like opening a dry cleaning operation or another franchise. I was starting a home staging business-a concept that didn’t yet exist in the terminology or the language of Real Estate in the Indianapolis area. I guess, I was a...
Note:  I wrote this blog several weeks ago, before the tragic death of Beverly Carter,  a Little Rock Arkansas Real Estate Agent.  Our team at Home Matters  would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Beverly's family and friends and dedicate this post to her memory.  This is a reminder to our...
  Once upon a time I received a call from a home seller who had done everything right.

If you look, you'll not only find delicious meals, but beautiful tablescapes, and small elements that make up the foundatio...
Recently I heard an agent say that they take the photos for their listing while their customers fill out the property disclosure form. Excuse me? Is this really the best time to take the BEST photos of the home to entire potential buyers to want to view and make an offer? No. Definitely not!  Ima...
You never get a second chance to make a first impression. These words are immortal. They are also very true. It's one of the reasons that staging from day one is so important. Both potential buyers and their agents may write off a property and even if you stage it later it may not be able to earn...
