Quoted in an On-Line Article on Home Staging

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Royal (Jordan)/Ready, Set...Sold! www.readysetsold.ca

Last week, a writer from PropertyWire.ca interviewed me for an article on home staging and its impact on the home selling process.  PropertyWire is a new Canadian on-line community of real estate and mortgage professionals.

The PropertyWire article on home staging, "Staging as Added Value to Your Business," is geared more toward real estate agents, but anyone buying or selling a home may be interested to see home staging discussed from the viewpoint of industry insiders.

For the record, though, I'm not big on the whole cinnamon / baking cookies thing before a buyer comes to visit.  It can seem so contrived.

And I don't think all family pictures need to be removed either.  This is one of three common home staging myths that are referred to, but not linked to, at the end of the article. 

I'd love to hear what you think of the PropertyWire article. Thoughts, anyone?

I stage all of my listings and hire a professional photographer...at no charge to my sellers.  It's part of my service package as a Montreal West Island real estate broker.  

Professional home staging and professional photography: two critical factors to making sure your home looks its best, both in person and on the Internet, and neither of them cost you a penny when you list with me.

Put your best house forward.

Gordon, chances are we are related somehow, way, way back.  My father too was born in Holland.  The name Nouwens is actually quite rare in North America but common in Holland.  Thanks for your feedback...always.

John, we can hope :)

Jane, what a nice thing to say!  Thank you so very much.

Well said, Lenn. And I appreciate your point about cookies being "friendly" and allowing people to linger and chat.  I hadn't thought of it that way before.  Friendly counts.

Kathy, thank you. I appreciate your input.  In my market, a few family photos makes buyers happy.  Too many distracts them, and none makes them wonder if anyone actually lives in the home.

Bob, thank you for that wonderful compliment, but I believe my place on the leader board speaks simply to the time I have put into blogging.  As you probably know, this jewel called ActiveRain is as yet largely undiscovered in La belle province :)
