When Should you List your House?


Is there a good time to list? Most agents will say during the spring months---March through June.  But data from actual sales show it depends where you live.  For example, homes on the west coast sell almost equally in every month except January. This is because the climate is temperate all year 'round. In [...]

Traditional v. Transitional Staging


Traditional This house was sold last year, but the new owner received an unexpected job change to another state not that long after moving in.  Therefore, not much work was done to make this house their own.  So, before listing it this year, the owner contacted Premiere Stagers & Realty to stage it.  It [...]

The Little House that Could


Pricing a 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom, 1117 square foot house is based upon the comparables of recently-sold or active properties within its subdivision. Since the house next door is also for sale, it is definitely a comparable.  However, that house has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a family room.  Both houses are in a desirable neighborhood. [...]

A Tale of Two De-Stagings


Can you tell which property sold and which one didn't?  Neither can I.  The photo on the left is from an available unit in a retirement community and sold within a couple of weeks--well before the 60-day staging contract expired.  The photo on the right is from a river-side property that hasn't [...]

How Expensive is Vacant Home Staging?


Should Every House be Staged? Premiere Stagers & Realty get this question all the time.  My answer is that most houses should be staged before listing. Houses don't need to be staged when they have little-to-no-value and you're basically selling the property; or when you are selling to a relative or to a house [...]

Selling a Home “As Is”


 What is As Is? I recently did a staging consultation for a customer who was to list her house soon.  The listing realtor suggested I pay a visit to help her decide what to keep, what to remove, and how to arrange the furniture.  I am always more than happy to do so. When [...]
