My broker Cherie and I are always on the lookout for new items to add to our staging collection. This week, we were out and about searching for new wall art and accessories to dress coffee tables and bookshelves with. We love our finds and can't wait for the walls to hang these on! Staging your h...
It seems that, as of late, there hasn't been a week when I didn't find a letter from some company in my mailbox that is "generously" offering to buy my house real fast, and for cash, and I could even avoid any fees and commission! They'll give me an offer right over the phone! That last line alon...
