What is Occupied Home Staging?

For almost six years, I have been working with sellers to guide and help them in getting their house ready to sell. On occasion, I still meet a seller who is unfamiliar with what home staging is exactly.  In a nutshell, home staging is preparing a house (both the interior and exterior) to sell; its visual marketing of a house – and, it is much more than just decorating and making it look pretty.  The goal in staging a house to sell is to showcase it so that it appeals to a majority of buyers, which often times will result in a quicker sale for more money.

During the initial home staging consultation with a seller, the house is assessed as to what steps should be taken in order to get it ready to show its best on the market. These steps include deep cleaning, de-cluttering, addressing all repair work, neutralizing the house and possibly updating in key areas.

Festival of Trees

This year I was honored to be one of 10 designers for the Auburn Homes Festival of Trees fundraiser. A lot of money was raised for the Life Enhancement Fund, including funds for a new mini coach to transport the residents of both the Waconia and Chaska Auburn Homes locations to various area activities and outings.

Farewell to Fall…

2-001

The Twin Cities metro area in Minnesota is experiencing the first snowfall of the year today. I am not ready for winter this year, and have been reflecting on the beautiful fall season we were fortunate enough to have.  It truly was magical – the trees kept their leaves longer, the colors were rich and intense, the days were warm and the evenings cool.  It is one reason why Minnesota is such a great place to live.  Now, the winters, for me…not so much!

Is Your House Your Home?

The title of this blog may sound silly to some.  Of course your house is your home, right?  When I think of a house, I think of a structure; a building with four walls and multiple rooms.  When I think of a home, it is more than that.  It is your personal sanctuary; the place where you live and probably spend a good deal of time.  In my opinion, your home should be a haven where you can completely relax and decompress from this hectic thing called life we are all living.

If your home is not comfortable to you, I have a hard time believing a person can easily find a sense of peace and restfulness.  Any dwelling can become a home.  I personally feel that a house becomes a home based on what you surround yourself with.

I HATE TO SAY IT, BUT I THINK YOU NEED MORE TIME

I sometimes get asked the question “How much time should I plan for to prepare my house for selling?”  My answer is always “As much time as you can”.  The moment you know that your house is going to be put on the market for sale, you need to start the process of marketing it to sell.

I cannot tell you how many phone calls and emails I have gotten where the homeowner wants to list the house “next week”.  I just silently cringe to myself, because I know that 99.9% of the time, that is simply not enough time to do all that should be done.

It’s incredible how easily we all accumulate “stuff”.  Especially if you have lived in your house for a while, chances are you have a lot of “stuff”.  This “stuff” is shoved in closets, utility rooms, cabinets, storage rooms, piled up in the garage and so on.  I get it, I really do – I am the queen of “stuff”.

It All Started with Gray and Mauve

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to decorate.  When I was really young, I had a pretty pink canopy bed that I loved.  Then, my family moved to a new house.  This house was brand new and bigger than old house.  My first bedroom here was completely color-coordinated in blue and white plaid.  I had twin beds with blue and white plaid bed covers, the bed frames and nightstand were painted white with blue detail, and of course the curtains matched the bedcovers.

Then, one day, my sister, who is nine years older, moved out.  She had the huge bedroom in the basement – one with an enormous walk-in closet and her very own full-size bathroom complete with sauna!  I was a wee bit excited knowing that this was now going to be my very own little haven in our home.  The problem was, and it was a big problem to me; it had yellow carpeting and curtains in a green, yellow and white leaf pattern.  Not so much my taste, even at the young age of 12 or 13.
