Yesterday we were having a nasty rainy day here in the Portland area and I picked up my clients and went for a nice drive to go see ...

Our dry winter was interrupted by a snow storm earlier today.  Everything is now covered in snow; it is beautiful but very dangerous to drive out there.  Some parts of I-5 were closed and there were as many as 25 vehicles collided in clusters near Albany. It usually takes me about 10 to 15 minute...

Inventory Continues to Drop   Inventory of homes continues to drop in the close-in market, sending prices even higher. Multiple offers are happening frequently with so few properties for buyers to choose from. I’m expecting sales to pick up earlier than normal this year given the demand. Wait fo...

When you're staging your home to sell, interior paint color is an important element because buyers don't want to spend money and time repainting before they move in.  We've often seen that too much "work" discourages busy buyers, who'd much rather find a home that's "move in ready."

Another Portland home staging success story! Skinny Homes in Portland became popular a few years ago when developers were granted permission to build on lots that were smaller than the standard 50 x 100 ft.

As a home stager in Portland, I see many homes that need some level of home staging assistance.  Since potential buyers often make a quick judgment about whether they'll like a home when they first see it (online or in person), one of the best returns on investment a seller can make is to freshen...

Recently we had the privilege of staging a 1931 home in Portland OR that has been in the same family since it was built.  This English Tudor-style home is a gem, full of original charm and lots of character!
