Are You Living the Life the Universe Wants You to Live?

After all, why spend money on staging when you can reasonably expect it will sell quickly. Why spend money on fixing things or remodeling? Why spend money on painting, or even cleaning? I see it all the time. I live in a small town that has limited housing, so it is always a seller’s market. I am Read more [...]

Saving Money on Home Staging will Cost You

Not your first price reduction!"Home staging is more expensive than I expected." More expensive compared to what? Read more [...]
