Emily, great ideas for re-purposing a shed. I’ve also seen sheds converted into excellent man caves using a few simple materials. Keep up the great work.

Very interested to be a guest blogger so I can write about how eco-conscious condos are making a big splash in Singapore’s real estate market today. Maybe you guys can also feature some of these “green” condos found at to have a glimpse of how amazing these properties are.

Comment on Mudrooms: Should You Stage One in Your Listing? by Patricia Ebrahimi

Mon, 02/27/2017 - 19:56

To your point…an owner wouldn’t stage. The lovely vacant house didn’t sell and didn’t sell. One complaint was it didn’t have a pantry or mud room. When convinced (2 months in) to stage, we outfitted a small room at the front with built-in bookcases the builder obviously had in mind as an office as a mud room and pantry (with those built-in bookcases). It sold the next day for the full $1.5 million price tag. Stage the mudroom!

Comment on Dining Rooms Are Out, Social Areas Are In by Karen Peyton

Fri, 02/24/2017 - 01:10

I think this is another trend that won’t be so trendy a couple of years from now. Buy-in of course is a matter of personal preference, floor plan, and the need for additional yet separate space. Great rooms are terrific for people without children, but no matter how hard you teach kids to levitate “them” and their stuff won’t.

Years ago, unbeknownst to me, I had a problem with number 3. The Sellers were cowboys and the “odd” object on the fireplace hearth was a skull. I put the house on tour for feedback as to why it wasn’t selling, and turns out everyone knew what is was, and said it had to go.

And here I thought the article was going to be on towels tied together with silk ribbon or raffia and artificial wreaths on the front door regardless of season…

Let’s face it. Certain markets can and will tolerate certain design styles. Cabin in the mountain? I don’t imagine a seller will be turned off by fur–on or off an animal. Kid’s room? Motivational or word art is certainly appropriate and usually gender neutral. Wine on a bar? Come on, it’s a BAR, it’s not like someone is going to use it for a Smoothie Station. Personally, I try to minimize the alcohol in the same way I try to minimize or remove religious artifacts. You want to appeal to a broad base and lessen anything potentially offensive. Air mattresses? Not wonderful, but as many others have said, not everyone has the budget for anything else. Checking on them from time to time and using flattened boxes on top and with thick bedding can help to disguise the hollows. I’m also an author, so I get that the writer of the article needs content to write about, but I don’t think you can use such a broad brush when it comes to staging.
