Renovations before Listing

Should you do renovations? During consultations, I always get asked what the homeowners should do in the way of renovations, updates, or upgrades before they list their house.  I wonder why they didn't do some of these beforehand for their own enjoyment.  Sometimes, however, they did enjoy their choices, but know that their choices [...]

Selling a House with Pets

A condo I listed has a very friendly young dog. However, not all people like dogs, or other pets, for that matter.  What can you do to make your home selling experience better for you and for the potential buyer?  Get your pet groomed.  If  your pet has hair, a professional groomer can remove [...]

Selling Your Condo?

Condominiums are great places to live for people who are just starting out or for people who are down-sizing.  Some condos are in large complexes that offer a swimming pool, tennis courts, a work-out room, golf course, or a clubhouse for parties.  Other condos are like a single-family home with their own entrance and [...]

Are Professional Photos Necessary?

Cell phone cameras can take some great photos of your family, friends, vacation spots, and selfies.  However, when it comes to real estate photos, should you hire a professional? See for yourself.

Open House Tips

Few words get home buyers more excited than these two: open house. An open house is their opportunity to give your house a whirl. To wiggle the light switches. To admire the crown molding. To, y’know, awkwardly ask to use the bathroom. (Which, by the way, savvy buyers will totally do — because they’ll want to [...]

Home Staging Done Right

After 23 years at one address, this homeowner's life plans changed.  Thus, his address has changed also.  But, how does one pack up a 4-bedroom house after all those years?  Slowly, but surely.  You take one room at a time.  You decide what to keep, what to donate, and what to throw away.  You [...]

Home Staging a Rental Townhouse

Premiere Stagers & Realty rarely stages rental units, usually because they get rented quickly in Madison, WI.  In this case, however, the rental agents were not quickly renting out their 3-bedroom townhouses. Townhouses are such a great idea for young families, roommates, students, or people wanting more privacy than a typical apartment.  This townhouse [...]

Condo on the Golf Course

Is the Grass Greener? This condo complex is on the north side of Madison, WI.  It boasts a community room, in-ground pools, indoor tennis courts, and a nice golf course.  The owners of this condo apparently loved the way the green grass looked that they carried that look indoors in their wall-to-wall carpet.
