In the world of home staging, or real estate staging, the timeless adage, "It's what's on the inside that counts," does not apply. If a seller wants to coax potential buyers inside a house it had better look clean, fresh and inviting on the outside first. Of course the inside must be clean, fresh...

Beautiful yet unsellable? As a home staging professional I have seen countless homes that are beautifully, often professionally decorated, but are unsellable. "How is that possible," a seller may ask, " I hired the best decorator in town, these fabrics are imported." Or you might hear, " These ar...

The word seems to be spreading regarding the merits of home staging. Sellers and real estate agents are getting the idea, but not the picture. At least not the picture a potential buyer needs. The term  "shows well" is often used to describe a home that has been decluttered and are clean, but are...

I love mortgage calculators. They're a great way to start the preliminary pre-approval process. I generally recommend starting the financial process of home buying a year in advance. This allows ample time to fix errors on your credit report, contribute more towards your down payment and reserves...

There they sit, the UNSOLD, (like the last kid picked for the team) nice homes in good neighborhoods, great curb appeal, but ignored by buyers.

This was a 203b and the appra...

Yes, the market has started to stabilize and no. it's not likely we'll see prices take a nose dive again. It's true though, experts do suspect prices will decrease about another 5% before increasing. That's great news (about the increase I mean)! One of the biggest mistakes a buyer can make is tr...

In my experience, I have found a home cannot be entirely rid of smoke--almost impossible to cover up. Smoke seeps into walls, fur...
