From Vacant to Vavoom! The Flufftastic Fairy Has Transformed 724 Caine Boulevard, in Edmonton! My friend David Wallace, from Harmony Redesign had asked me to help him with another staging consultation here at 724 Caine Blvd, in Edmonton. A lovely home with an office right off the front door and an open living dining plan. The 3 bedrooms upstairs include a luxurious master suite and ensuite. It has yet to go on the market, but that should be rectified shortly. I had so much fun finding little touches to make this house stand out!

Balwin Edmonton Real Estate The Balwin Edmonton real estate average sale price per square foot is currently sitting at $193 in 2012.  That is much softer than what Balwin was averaging in 2011.  Part of the reason for the fall in the selling price per square foot average was that these homes that have sold in Balwin in 2012 have been closer to 66 street. This area tends to see a lower lot value than the 82 street side of Balwin.  For more detailed sales information including a price graph visit Balwin Edmonton Real Estate

Idylwylde Edmonton Real Estate The Idylwylde Edmonton real estate average sale price per square foot has been on a steady incline throughout 2011.  This is not too surprising as it borders on to two popular areas, Holyrood and Bonnie Doon.  The highest sale price so far in 2012 in Idylwylde has been $322,000.  The average time to sell a home in Idylwylde in 2012 has been 99 days.  This is longer than the Edmonton days on market average of 52, but I wouldn't read too much into it as it is only based on 2 sales so far in 2012.  For more detailed sales information including an average sale price graph visit Idylwylde Edmonton Real Estate

Thinking Outside the Box in Edmonton! Making a Wine Rack a Towel Rack!You'll have to excuse my blurry pix, I don't know what's wrong with my camera...Look at this great wine rack stool I found today at a thrift store for $10!I was on my way to a vacant home Staging gig and thought I'd stop in and see what was there, since stock changes almost daily. It's leather/soft vinyl with nice stitching, plus I needed something for my Master ensuite.Rolling up a few towels so they are about the size of wine bottles hides the true nature of this stool. What a great addition to my accessory stock!

Wild Rose Edmonton Real Estate The Wild Rose Edmonton real estate average sale price per square foot has plunged to begin 2012.  This is concerning until you actually look closer at the sales.  There was one home in particular that skewed the average lower in Wild Rose in 2012.  This home sold for $492,000 which at first looks good, but it was 3100 square feet!  When you look at the sale price per square foot for this home it was only $159.  I expect to see Wild Rose recover easily, the area is popular with young families and the newer homes with lower maintenance issues are a plus for first time buyers.  For more detailed sales data on the Wild Rose real estate market including an average sale price graph visit here.

Going Green Just Got Greener! Solazyme Makes Green Oil! Just in time for St. Patricks Day! As I was working out on my elliptical machine this morning I was watching the Discovery Channel. The Program Game Changers was featuring the company Solazyme that is making diesel oil from algae. Yup, the green stuff Tom was sitting in one of his last posts! Betcha didn't know you were sitting in a gold mine Tom! Now you know what to do with the Green water! What Solazyme does; is take algae, add natural sugars from cane, grass, garden waste etc and ferment it. (just like beer) Algae has a natural tendency to protect itself from the elements of sun and wind by producing oil.   This oil, Solazyme has found, can be used to make diesel fuel, olive type oil, and botanicals for skin care! Depending on ...

Not All Marketing Has to Involve Selling! Saturday evening I got to market my business in a very unique way! As most of you who read my blog know; I wear a few hats... I decided, when I met Shannon Berry of Capital Concierge in Edmonton, at a Meet-Up, that I would wear one of my other hats to market Fluff My House!. She was putting together an event and told me that a few of the attendees said they would love to have a Tarot card reader, because it would make the event a little more interesting. Shannon told me in her experience, some people think it's fun and others dislike things like that. So I told her one of my 'characters' that I provide for events from one of my companies: CPC (Concept Peg Co) Talent; is a Comedy Gypsy Fortune Teller. I call myself Gypsy Diamond Lee and I read Ol...

Why Can't You Let Me Stage in Peace!?! Recently I staged 2 homes practically next door to each other over 4 days. 1059 & 1077 It was a little crazy and some things had to be carted back and forth to be used in one or the other house. Art lined the front hallway and bins and furniture were scattered about in different rooms waiting to be placed. Amid this controlled chaos the front doors would open and Realtors would walk buyers through showing them what a lovely(?) home it was. They always asked if it was okay to come in. I'd always say 'the builder prefers you take your shoes off and if you don't mind the mess c'mon in!' And of course we would have to stop while they were there, often the furniture movers couldn't move anything in because of the pile of shoes in the way. Privately I'd ...

Making a Child's Room Flufftastic in Edmonton!I had the chance to stage a child's room this week and boy was it fun!A couple months ago I had come across some ladybug nesting file boxes and knew they'd be the perfect starting point for a kid's room.  I also had a couple meters of ladybug fabric that had caught my eye years ago. We won't talk about how much fabric I have, it makes my husband cranky... :D So I found a couple small lamps and recovered the shades with fabric using my handy dandy hot glue gun and, with not too many blisters or fingers stuck together, used them to make a kids room Flufftastic! I also made a matching pillow case... I know there's too much in this room, but it was so fun, I couldn't help myself!
