Home Staging for the holidays

To my home staging friends, 

I have written several blogs in the past about how I use Craig's List differently than most.  I try to use catchy titles and right different appealing content in the body.  I recently wrote an ad for a Stager friend and within 3 business days she received a lead that turned into business. 

I highly recommend you go to Craig's List, find your city or area, click on "Real Estate Services" at the bottom and consider writing this kind of ad:


Home Staging for the holidays - why it works

Staging is more important now more than ever.  Think about it, many people take there homes off the market during the winter time which means less competition.  Those that put there homes on the market during the winter months usually have their home decorated for the winter holidays.  I can show you how to keep your home attractive to family and friends and also make it attractive to buyers that may want to see your home.  Remember that you may only have one opportunity to impress.  Contact me for your free consultation and visit my website at Staged First Impressions
