Twas The Week Before Christmas, And My House Was For Sale

By
Home Stager with Sharon Tara Transformations

christmas decorations



Twas the week before Christmas

and all through the house

every room had been cleaned and prepared 

by the Stager and her spouse.

 

The furniture had been placed...each accessory chosen with care,

in hopes that a buyer, very soon would be there.




The Home Stager has become the Seller!

It's the week before Christmas and my Portsmouth NH home is for sale.

One thing is for certain, I'm a woman of my word.  I practice what I preach! All those times I said to a client "if it were my house I would..." have become a reality.   This selling business is no fun....especially when you are as serious about preparation and presentation as I am.  There has been no rest and will be no rest until a buyer is found.

Pray for us!  LOL!

One very important thing I've learned....don't let Winter or the holidays scare you away from listing.  We have seen a lot of action this past week.  The people looking at houses the week before Christmas are very serious!

All I want for Christmas this year... is a BUYER!!

Hi Sharon--you certainly have a lot going on in your life this week.  Your home is beautiful and no doubt it will sell very soon.  I always say you don't need luck when you have talent, and you have plenty of talent.  Happy Holidays.

Maureen:  My "last Christmas" here...that's sad!  We moved into this house the week before Christmas so I guess we have come full circle.

Sally:  Thank you, I will let you know when you can uncross those fingers and toes.

Janet:  Thank you!  It has been a very busy couple of weeks, and very emotional too!  I'm ready to relax now and enjoy the holiday!

Dear Sharon,

This has to be the one of the biggest decisions you had to make. I know it won't be easy, but it will be a success and you will too! There has to be such an emotional attachment but I know you will adjust and things will always be good for you.

Merry Christmas to you Sharon. You've been a tremendous support to me in providing feedback that was genuine and sincere. I wish you many blessings, good health, a destination that will make you happy, a stress free move, joy, happiness and all good things. \

Keep the faith Sharon. Pay-it-Forward is coming your way... I feel it!

Take care and trust that everything is going to be alright.

Kind Regards,

Patricia

Patricia:  I appreciate your support, and reassurance.  I'm a strong believer in things happening for a reason and working out for the best...I am very excited about our new chapter!

By the time you read this, you'll probably know whether you were naughty or nice. Look under the Christmas tree.... no presents? naughty.... I'm guessing they'll be lots of presents.

Merry Christmas Day!
