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.

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 [...]
