Is Spring the best time to list and stage my house?

Spring Dear Sisters Staging,  I have to move in February but everyone tells me there won't be enough buyers to bother with listing and staging my house.  I read on a real estate site that I should not bother in the Winter.  Should I wait until Spring to stage my home for sale?  Sincerely, Winter [...]

Why don’t buyers love my house?

Dear Sisters Staging, Our house has been listed for six months! I cannot figure out why it hasn't sold. I have put EVERYTHING into my house. My ideas, my creativity, my money, my time. My tears are staining the furniture. We would love to find buyers who love the house as much as we do. [...]

EMPTY HOUSE, no furniture

Dear Sisters Staging, The hubs and I don’t understand why we HAVE to have our house staged just to sell it.  It’s empty!  Won’t the buyers fall in love with the space as it is?  It has a great fireplace and the walls have just been repainted “Agreeable Gray”.  We were told that is the [...]

1984’s Home

Dear Sisters Staging, My mom is selling her home, and it’s stuck in 1984 worse than George Orwell could have ever imagined. We’re talking mauve duck decorations in the kitchen, hunter green carpet in the den and ivy-themed wallpaper in the bathroom. It’s so stuck in the 1980’s I think I might have seen a few [...]

1970’s Home

Dear Sisters Staging, My wife and I have an early 70’s “Brady Bunch” style split level we’ve recently listed for sale.

1950’s Bathroom

Dear Sisters Staging, Help! My older house for sale is competing with brand new houses! My home was built in the 1950’s. It is a far cry from the brand new sparkly subdivision houses up the road. The bathroom tiles are so dated I think even Bobby Darin would refuse to Splish Splash and Take [...]
