Will Home Staging REALLY Get Me More for My House? I recently met with a lovely couple in Southington Connecticut for a home staging consultation.  The skeptical husband asked me "if I do all the things you're telling me to do - remove wall paper, paint, de-clutter, etc. - will I really get MORE $$ for my house?  Well Mr Seller, you're smart to be skeptical.  You see, I cannot make your 30 year old 3 bedroom colonial on its 1/2 acre parcel sell for more than its worth.  It is still going to be a 30 year old 3 bedroom colonial on a 1/2 acre parcel when we're done staging it.  But here's what staging can do for you .... Staging WILL make your home stand out from its competition.  Cleaning, de-cluttering and inexpensive upgrades like painting, WILL make your house feel more modern and spac...

The new year, new decade is here, and we are living in the speed of light decade of change. As passengers on this train and we can enjoy this ride or pull the emergency handle and exit to join the 'The Slow Media Movement' which some people have decided to do instead of the multi-tasking - texting craziness of the new decade. As a Sales Trainer, in real estate, and an early adopter to all of the latest gratest technology tools I am able to walk in this crazy multi-tasking, constantly connected world, and honestly I love it most of the time. What I find distressing is the number of recent adopters to all of this trying to coach and sell me, and my company, things that they know less of than I do.

Plans to develop Downtown Southington got a huge boost recently, with comparisons drawn to nearby West Hartford Center. This is a fantastic opportunity for the town of Southington, CT. Here are the details: The Greenway Commons project $50 million plan calls for 263 owner-occupied residential units and 22,000 square feet of downtown retail space on the 14-acre site of the vacant Ideal Forging complex on Center Street. However, the new complex may have the biggest effect on the business community. Downtown shops, eateries, and business owners are looking forward to the increased foot traffic, open space, and what it means for their businesses- AND SO AM I! I am very passionate about downtown revitalization. West Hartford did a magnificent job with their Blue Back Square. Southington is n...
