Staging, photo angles and lighting can all make a tremendous difference when presenting a home to sell. Online photos should generate enough interest for someone to view the home. At the end of the day nothing replaces seeing the home in person

Quartz is by far the top choice for homes over quartz. Not having to seal it and maintain it like quartz is a major advantage and it comes in many terrific and dazzling colors

Classic Vibe: My favorite style wise but, furniture too big for the space and too dark. Positioning of the furniture was done correctly.

Bold Artwork: In my opinion, out of the three, was the hardest to stage. A keen eye would have done 2 cozy sitting areas, split the room in half and out all of the artwork on 1 wall and done ultra modern with white furniture.

A Modern Touch: This room is the largest of the 3 and I would have placed Industrial furniture centered for gatherings in the room leaving the perimeter open; with this concept you leave the admirer’s free to walk the perimeter of the room. Plenty of natural light, you do not need to add additional lighting above the windows. The lighting budget should have been spent to light each individual art piece.

In staging with a specific furniture style (traditional, transtional or modern) the seller is taking a chance that the look will turn off a buyer who cannot imagine his own furniture occupying that space. The room with staging which leaves the most to my imagination (lots of space, uncluttered) will be the most appealing to me as a buyer.

Comment on Sneak Peek: The ‘It’ Paint Color for 2017 by Dorothy Philipps

I’ve always liked Taupe. Does anyone have feedback onValspar sandstone (Lowes) or brushed suede finish (ala Spitfire SU132 neutral grey brown, Ralph Lauren Paint)? I was impressed at an open house last year where living and dining room were painted in a light sandstone color. I have never seen the brush suede finish on an actual wall.

I agree with Karen, pictures and angles make all the difference when selling your home.

This blog post is very informative. It gives the home owner a good idea on what the actual costs to repair of a house are without having to call to get bids. Although bids are important, this blog gives the home owner a good starting point.

Comment on 5 Signs Your Listing May Have Once Been a Meth Lab by Lisa Rowan

Tue, 10/18/2016 - 17:48

Be really careful how you present yourself to authorities if you suspect meth activity in your neighborhood. I became SICK in a rural WA home, and clearly described evidence of a lab nearby. I was told the sheriff would investigate only if I had PROOF! I learned previous owner of my home contracted brain cancer and died after lifetime of perfect health. The previous owner before her also died of cancer. My three cats and I developed kidney problems at the same time. But in seeking help from authorities and agents, found myself discounted and depicted as delusional. I had to choose between saving my life or proving I wasn’t nuts. I am now living in my car. I have lingering kidney issues, respiratory issues, have developed apnea and require supplemental oxygen at night. Two of my cats died of acute on chronic kidney failure within six months of each other. Had I known local law enforcement were on a drug enforcement strike due legal conflict with new legislature, I would have run away sooner. Bad enough to have lost everything–but to be utterly discredited in the process…? I guess I’m saying there’s a backlash, as with the “sick building” issue, and the physical and fiscal costs may not be the worst of it.

Wow! The differences of design are incredible! If not for referencing the location of the windows, I would not have believed these were (even) the same space.

Thanks for posting!

Comment on ‘Heavy Metal’ is Rocking Home Design Accessories by Brett

Thu, 10/13/2016 - 17:27

Adding warm colored metal to home design can spruce up a home provided that it is consistent with the overall look that you are trying to achieve. Wood and brick often compliment designs such as the Tuscan home better than metal. At the end of the day both design and style are in the eye of the beholder
