"This Naperville home is too much work. I need move-in ready!" Is this really what you want buyers thinking about your home? "But wait! My home is move-in ready. It's not dated." Really? Is that what you think?  I was recently featured here on AR for my post Fresh linens can take 30 years off a h...
Home staging is not just for vacant properties. Often occupied properties need a little extra oomph.

As a professioanal Chicagoland Home Stager that works in a lot of vacant homes for both individual seller and investors, I get to experience some amazing transformations. While we may do this on a daily basis, it doesn't take away from the excitement of the before and after shot. Take a look at a...
Some people love or hate silk plants. Often home stagers and redesigners hate them because when we arrive in an occupied home sellers have far too many of them that are in bad shape and covered with dust.
