I have a confession to make...I've got a thing about staging Laundry Rooms. The Kitchen may be the "heart of the home" but many hours are spent each week in the laundry room. And THAT makes this room a very important space to feature when selling your home.Many times when I am consulting with homeowners and we get close to the laundry area, they'll ask if I want to see it because after all, it's only the laundry room. In their minds, it's that space that's a catch-all for dirty clothes, shoes, coats, 5 cases of water bottles, dog food and old paint cans. Oh yes! I tell my clients, I DEFINETLY want to see what's behind that door. The Laundry Room needs some attention and staging too. This is one space you don't want to forget about! The biggest issue is getting rid of everything that is...

I recently read this in The Wall Street Journal. These are great tips! Need to justify to yourself why now is the perfect time to buy? Here are six reasons why now is the time to jump into the market. (1515 First Ave Middletown, Ohio MLS: 1160993)   1. Uncle Sam is willing to help. First-time buyers (defined as anyone who hasn't owned a home in the last three years) are entitled to a maximum $8,000 tax credit; interest rates are at record lows; and the Federal Reserve is doing its best to make mortgage loans available. 2. People have to live somewhere. About 800,000 new households are formed each year in this country, ensuring that the housing market will tighten, even if the economy doesn't soar. 3. Borrowers leverage their investment. If you put $10,000 into the stock market and it e...

home staging cincinnati, cincinnati real estate, homes for sale liberty twp, ohio, mary iliff, stage a star Here is one of our latest properties we've staged here at Stage a Star.I LOVE this floorplan....it's so family friendly with the open kitchen to the family room and plenty of space at the eat in counter. You can def. get 5 bar stools in there.  There's a fantastic screened in porch off of the family room with its very own porch swing.   What was also really cool about staging this home was that it's located in my own neighborhood, Welbourne Manor in Liberty Twp. We moved into this awesome neighborhood almost 5 years ago and LOVE it!   It's a smaller subdivision with about 153 homes but what sets Welbourne apart is its "character".    All the homes are full brick, matching mailbox...

Go to theCincyBlog for all the real estate news. Last night's email headline from the Cincinnati Business Courier alerted us to the story. This morning's Cincinnati Enquire headlined "Town Center Proposed for Liberty Township". And if you have driven east on Hamilton Mason Road recently- the construction arrows and detours are a sure sign of impending growth. Home owners always want to know how much (if any) the development will boost their property values. It is a great question! Unfortunately there isn't any easy way to estimate the impact. Commercial development is usually good for the surrounding areas: increased tax revenues; variety of businesses attracting a diverse population for shopping and entertainment; increased exposure for the area. Along with all the benefits comes the i...

On May 6, 2008 the Cincinnati Enquirer's lead article about a home buyer in trouble "Homeowner in Over Her Head" detailed the story about a buyer with mortgages on 3 homes worth 5 million dollars. She claims she was duped by her tax preparer and is now looking for assistance to correct the problem. This morning's Letter to the Editor in the Cincinnati Enquirer readers were voicing their views and they were not too sympathetic about her plight. Is buying real estate in greater Cincinnati, Ohio really that difficult? No- not really. Buyers need to educate themselves and beware of deals that sound to good to be true. Three things to remember when purchasing a home and signing the mortgage note: If you applied and were turned down for a loan by 3 reputable lenders...and the 4th lender says...

I have a builder that is preparing to put a market home up. The question that I would other professionals to answer is on the counters do your buyers prefer Granite or do they recognize what Quartzite is? Also what is the general feeling on Venetian bronze fixtures or Brushed Platinum?Thank you for your help in advance.

In Liberty Township Ohio sometimes you have to wonder what is going on. The Trustees are looking out for our best interests but it would be good to know what is happening. We have just applied for Limited Home Rule and the meeting minutes are getting rather thin. Here is the repoert on a meeting that was held in July. If you click on it it will open in a new window. http://www.liberty-township.com/_filelib/FileCabinet/Trustee_Meeting_Minutes/2007%20Minutes/2007-06-06_SPECIAL_MEETING_MINUTES.pdf?FileName=2007-06-06_SPECIAL_MEETING_MINUTES.pdf I just love the information presented by these records of what our public officials are doing on our behalf.    Anyone else feel the same way?

    I do not pay for lead generation and never will. I feel that my marketing money is better spent promoting myself and my services rather than promoting a third party and allowing them to pass on to me whatever they can generate in my area.  That said I received an interesting email from a lead generation company that promises costs that occur at closing."If I had a way to drive motivated customers to you with costs that occurred when you actually closed a transaction, would that interest you?"  So far the program sounds interesting so they have a good hook to my attention. Now for the cost factor."We charge you a referral fee of 19% when an ******* consumer buys or sells a home through you.  Out of that 19% that we charge you, we will be providing 80% of it back to the consumer for h...

  I was at home yesterday and dressed for Real Estate. Working on it that is not selling it. A lady pulled up in front of the home next door to me. I currently have that home listed and working hard to get it sold.   This young lady asked me if she could come into my yard and see the rear of the home. I introduced myself and told her that I was the listing agent. We talked for about a half hour about the home and some of her concerns. She shared with me that she has viewed the home many times on the internet and loves the inside. She felt that she needed to drive by and see the home and neighborhood in person. She contacted the agent that she is working for an interior showing.  Remember the neighbors can have an effect on the sale of your listings even if it's you!
