karen dembsky: Have You Been To Home Stager's Heaven? - 06/04/08 03:11 PM
I just came from home stager's heaven . . . well, actually I was in Atlanta, but it must have resembled home stager's heaven, because I had the opportunity to exercise my talents to create a lovely atmosphere in this already charming home!  I'm not sure what seemed so magical to me . . . I staged it in a day.  It was just me; no one to share company with; but it was pure pleasure.  My enthusiasm was at a high; I was totally at peace and enjoying the tasks at hand! 
I always am quite enthusiastic about my work, whether it … (17 comments)

karen dembsky: Hmmm . .. How Functional Is VACANT? - 10/29/07 06:32 PM
Remember, you are selling a HOUSE, a property; space. Disassociate yourself.
Okay, but what if . . .
What if the house you are selling is vacant?  Well, it becomes easier to disassociate yourself!  YEA!  After all, your belongings have already been removed and that, of course, is what made it home.
Now the problem becomes that your disassociation ; well, uh, is the very disassociation your vacant house is displaying to all the potential buyers.   Uh-Oh!
Let's step back and think about this problem.  Hmmm . . .
OKAY . . . When you are shopping for that new wonderful wide screen TV or any television for … (45 comments)

karen dembsky: Home Is Where the Heart Is; The Wallet's Where the House Is! - 08/15/07 02:02 PM
Home Staging by a professional home stager prior to placing your home on the market is a tool that provides multiple home selling advantages.  Having been a Realtor® for many years, and now a professional home stager, I have witnessed both the financial and emotional advantages home staging provides to home sellers over, and over again.
First, the wallet's where the house is!  it's important to look at your current market statistics with your Realtor®.  The numbers can be quite startling!  For instance, in Fayette County, Georgia there are approximately 27,000 owner-occupied houses.  Data taken from the Georgia MLS shows that Fayette County's average … (20 comments)

karen dembsky: George, The Good News Realtor - 08/11/07 05:24 PM
Is it Bad News; or is it Good News?
The Realtor that advises their listing clients to have a Home Staging Consultation prior to publicly listing their home on MLS knows they are delivering good news, not bad.  These Realtors know how to make lemonade, time and time again!
Realtors are continually in client situations where they have to deliver bad news.  It can be a challenge, chiefly because Realtors have an obligation to deliver honesty to a potential client while, at the same time, trying to capture and earn that client's trust and confidence. 
When a Realtor goes to a listing appointment and … (16 comments)

Home Staging; Avoid a Groundhog Day Experience
Remember the movie, Groundhog Day, with Bill Murray?  In 2006, Groundhog Day was added to the United States National Film Registry as being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
Having your house on the market is the same as living in the real estate version of this classic flick.  Everyday you must wake up and make the beds, wipe down all the counters, clear any dishes, sparkle up the faucets, hide the bath towels, tuck away any pending laundry, tidy up the toys, make the floors shimmer, and, well, you know the drill. The list goes … (3 comments)

karen dembsky: Home Staging for the Average Joe - 07/13/07 01:42 PM
Everybody knows the average Joe.  Although the average Joe varies from region to region across the country, you can bet you know him where you live.  Most of us are friends with, and do business with, the average Joe.  In fact, most of us ARE the average Joe.
The average Joe in the state of Georgia lives in a $235,000 home.  The average Joe in Georgia moves every 7 years.  The average Joe lists his home with a Realtor when it's time to market his home.  The average Joe sifts and sorts through pictures of available homes on the Internet when wanting to … (11 comments)
