Preparing a property for sale is a very personal experience, there is not one absolute standard. It’s a collection of decisions that correlate to, and support your needs, goals, and expectations.
Further complicating things-most everything you hold dear in this world is on the table: Family, your values and relationships, money and time, your hopes, dreams and fears. All this considered, critical thinking skills are essential, which is why I started running free Home Staging workshops a few years ago.
Free*, interactive and open to the public, The Refreshed Home is pleased and excited to share the Spring 2015 schedule of upcoming Get Your House Noticed and SOLD! events.

My presentations are geared to the hands-on home seller: interactive and flexible, combining Q&A, easy ideas most everyone can implement on their own, and a slide presentation-including the perennial crowd favorite-BEFORE and AFTER photos!
While the optimism (and stability) continues to grow in the Westchester County real estate market, that’s no reason to assume buyers will be taking their house-shopping any less seriously. AND they will have a lot to look at! Preparing a home for sale engages buyers, lets them see the value in the property, and makes it easier for them to say YES.
Properties that are priced right, and have been thoughtfully prepared for market garner the most buzz early on. They also attract the most serious, and best qualified buyers, and bring in the best offers, sooner. Through 3Q 2014 the average Days on Market for single family homes in Westchester County was 126 days. TRH’s Staged properties averaged 30.5 days. And received 99.7% of original list price.
