According to a report from Bloomberg and Zillow.com, an internet provider of home valuations, 1/3rd of all homes purchased in the last 5 years are now "upside" down interms of their mortgage amount against their current value. Home prices continue to fall across the Country as the housing crisis is showing little signs of recovery. Many are now projecting that the housing slow down will not see a meaningful correction until sometime late in 2009 and possibly as far our as 2010 as more and more inventory is being placed on the market due to rising foreclosures from both home homeowners and builders. Interest rates have not helped this situation as mortgage rates have remained relatively steady for the past year despite massive interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve. The other contribu...

As any experienced home stager will tell you, the "art of home staging" is quite different for an occupied home versus a vacant home.  With a vacant home, we define what we use in the form of furniture and accessories; whereas with an occupied, we're typically dealing with what the homeowners already own. While the process is different, the desired objective is the exact same.  The goal in home staging for both occupied and vacant is to showcase the features of the home as well as the space. Here's insight into the planning that occurred for this occupied home: In this before picture of the office, we have the typical office clutter.  Let me quickly add that my office looks extremely similar.  The opportunity here is to showcase this in a much more organized fashion. Now here's what we ...

I had the good fortune of staging the most adorable home on Friday of last week in Smyrna, Georgia.  The home was filled with wonderful accessories; great lamps and awesome furniture.  The couple, Jeff & Tracey, had hired me a year ago to stage an investment home that they had rennovated.  It was a great move as they had two offers during their open house and the house had closed in just 2.5 weeks.  The reason why I was there on Friday is that they were now putting their own home on the market.  They had made some great decisions with respect to the changes they thought would be important to a buyer.  Here's what they decided upon: Remodeled their master bathroom with a wonderful tile (shower and flooring). Painted molding and walls throughout most of the home Had the Home Staged So why...

Over the past few months I keep hearing that Atlanta is feeling the same "Down Market" symptoms as the rest of the nation. While we are seeing homes take a little longer to sell, prices are dropping for homes actively listed versus what they originally listed for (note this doesn't mean sale prices are down) and inventory is high, Atlanta is still seeing 2-3% positive appreciation year to year. Yep that's right, let me say that again, Atlanta is still seeing home values appreciate. In Cobb County alone, Realtors sold 13,708 homes during 2007 (not bad for a "down year"). My office here at Keller Williams had the 2nd best month ever since its inception 8 years ago, April 2008 was a record breaker, so again I challenge those market critics to throw Atlanta in with the rest of the nation. I...
