Your realtor does it.  So does your appraiser.  Lawyers do it, doctors do it.  In fact, most business executives do it too.  I'm talking about continuing education.   In a profession that is largely regulated by new real estate laws, tax laws, lending regulations, federal disclosures, lending practices, realtors, appraisers, and lawyers are required to take continuing education courses to keep up.  But, what about staging professionals?   Staging has come along way since 10 years ago, 5 years ago, even 2 years ago.  What was once sound advice has, once again, done an about face and changed the way homes are being staged and the way buyers are buying homes.  We used to talk about having a blank canvas so that buyers wouldn't be put off by annoying colors, and only recommended white, whit...

  WHOOPS!  WHO SMASHED INTO THE CALDWELL CROSSINGS SIGN?     The Caldwell Crossings Homeowners Association would love to know and is asking anyone that may have seen the accident to contact them.  This is the sign at the Crossings Drive entrance into the subdivision, just across Caldwell Mill Road from the entrance to Altadena Woods.  You can't see in the photo, but there are obvious tire tracks in the planting bed where a vehicle plowed through pansies and lighting fixtures before crashing into the sign.    Can you help?  Please call 733-6700.     * * * * * * *     Looking for a local expert for to help with your real estate needs?   Google one here!         Courtesy of Ann Allen, e-Pro, SRES, ASP 205.902.4868 Keller Williams One Chase Corporation Drive, Suite 150 Hoover, AL  35244   ©...

  Mom, You Need The Big Bag of Catfood!   Mom and Dad have not owned a pet for years, but they enjoy watching the neighborhood cats that scamper around their yard occasionally.  A few weeks ago, one little kitty peeked in the window while they were having lunch.....my mom was afraid she was hungry and decided she would pick up some catfood the next time she shopped for groceries so she could put some food and water on the patio for her.  I suggested if she was going to start that she might want to get the big bag of food........     It didn't take long for word to get out....     They are still a little shy.....       But some are getting a little more at ease with me.....           Mom's kitty cafe is open for business and has lots of satisfied customers!

Would you hire a realtor to list your home without a listing contract? Would you have a doctor perform surgery on you who wasn't board certified or state licensed? What about hiring a painter who didn't have accident/liability insurance? Or would you hire a builder who had a portfolio of homes he didn't build or ever step foot in? Of course you wouldn't.  The same selectiveness should hold true when you are looking for a staging professional to stage your home. Contract:  Your staging professional should have a staging contract, between you the homeowner and the stager, that outlines the services they will perform, the length of time your home will remain staged, any and all costs that you are responsible for, terms, payment policy and any restrictions or exclusions. It should also incl...

  BREAKFAST WITH SANTA WAS LOTS OF FUN!   We had a great crowd of kids, parents and grandparents at our office in Hoover this morning for our Breakfast With Santa event!  There were plenty of goodies to eat and drink and this year we showed Christmas movies in our meeting room on our big screen television.  You know, not everyone wants to sit on Santa's lap!  There were a few tears, but mostly just smiles and fun.   My grandson was one of those that was having no part of going to see Santa, but he enjoyed the food and the balloons!  Maybe next year.......             Looking for a local expert for to help with your real estate needs?   Google one here!         Courtesy of Ann Allen, e-Pro, SRES, ASP 205.902.4868 Keller Williams One Chase Corporation Drive, Suite 150 Hoover, AL  35244   ...

  STAGED LIVING© A PUBLICATION OF THE STAGEHAND HOME STAGING AND REDESIGN SERVICES® The Holiday Season undoubtedly presents challenges when your home is on the market.  The real estate market slows during this time of the year; but, this can work to your advantage.  Having fewer homes on the market can mean less competition.  If your home is on the market, making sure your home stands out from your competition will help drive a sale of your home.  Making sure your home is market ready and in good repair will build buyer confidence. Having it professionally staged will help highlight your home's special features and attributes.  Emphasizing your home's curb appeal and architectural features are extremely important factors when staging a home. Avoid decorating your home for the holidays....
