Vacant Staging Adds Money to Your Pocket

"Absolutely Beautiful" These were the words my client emailed me after I finished staging her vacant property.  I thought so too, but until someone else affirms it, you're never quite sure you "hit the mark." My client realizes in order to get top dollar, people need to make an emotional connection.   Staging helps them [...]

Parade Home Staging

Madison Area Builders Association Parade of Homes (June, 2020) Premiere Stagers & Realty usually doesn't stage Parade Homes.  Why?  Because I do staging, not interior design.  What's the difference?  An interior designer chooses a particular demographic such as a family, an urban couple, adults over 55, a single young professional, etc., and then inserts [...]

The Spring Staging Season Begins

Spring Staging Season Here in Madison, WI, a fair amount of snow remains over a layer of ice.  It has been bitterly cold, in fact today we broke a record low temperature.  This makes buying or selling a house especially difficult.   Very few people will venture out looking at homes when the sidewalks aren't [...]

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 [...]

Pros and Cons of Flat-Fee Listings

It appears the usual answer from full-service brokers regarding flat-fee listings are "you get what you pay for."  However, let's take another look. According to a San Diego Agent:  "A flat fee company is as good as the agent you have working for you. In many cases these agents are capable and diligent and [...]

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 [...]
