We stagers all like to tout that staging helps a house to sell faster. Me too.  Last month, TWEAK set a new personal record.  This vacant property had been on the market since Nov. 2007. The fourth agent, who is a TWEAK fan for sure, called me in.  She also had them inspect the home. A few repair...
If my phone calls are any measure, I think Greenville agents are finally getting wise to the great investment that home staging is. I guess all those folks who thought they could just put up a sign, price it ok, make up the bed and take a few photos and SELL their house last spring are realizing ...
Yes you can. I just destaged a 1200 SF house and put everything in my Camry Solara and actually had some room left over. It just shows that effective staging doesn't require a lot of STUFF, just well placed appropriate stuff. This was a flip house that I also advised on the design issues.The hous...
This flip house is a good example of how a small investment in staging can really transform a house. With 2 visits, some cleaning, light staging and new pictures really helps this house stand out to buyers without great expense to the owner. Better than a price reduction. The budget didn't allow...
I was referred by one of my best agent partners to consult with a client who needed to list their vacant home. Not only was the home vacant, it was 16 years old and had not been updated....and needed it. The owners commute an hour and twenty each way to their business and just did not have time n...
   This house off Laurens road in Greenville was in terrible shape, but had wonderful traits. I consulted with owner/investor and contractor to bring this unique house back on the market. It's the coolest house. Has a creek UNDER it, INSIDE atrium with planting beds and spiral staircase to loft,...
Everywhere you look, everything is a "deal". Markdowns, new lower prices, economy models, coupons, discounts, bargains, recession offers!  We're all in this mess together I suppose.  And we all want to survive. As a stager, I do not plan to reduce my fee. I am a successful professional and worth ...
As an active home stager and marketing consultant, I am often asked when is the best time to stage or prep a home for sale. I am also asked "Do I really need to go to that much trouble?"  I do find that many more homesellers are understanding the importance of careful staging. And the best time t...
Here's a heads up to those of you who may be interested in the River Oaks subdivision. There's a great house at a really great price coming up soon. Stay tuned.
On several projects, the landscaping was one of the main objections of the house. In some cases, I just recommend the owner have certain plants trimmed or removed and add some mulch, etc. However, ina few cases, I have also included some light landscaping as part of my services. I have quite a bi...
