New City, NY Real Estate News

Buying a home is an emotional process and color effects emotion.  Using red in a home can add the drama needed to evoke that emotional response in potential buyers.  Red is the color of passion and energy. Using red in the bedroom creates a rich look that buyers will respond to. Red also looks great in photographs. The rooms with red accents will stand out from the sea of beige on MLS.     Both of the above bedrooms were staged using the things the homeowner already had on hand. Home staging does not need to be an expensive process.  At Rockland Home Staging we will work with what you have to create a space that will be warm and inviting.  Why not take the guesswork out of getting your home ready for sale and call Rockland Home Staging today (845)731-9510.

I just finished staging a beautiful home that just needed a few finishing touches.  The living room and family room appeared dated because of the gold crushed velvet couches.  I purchased SureFit Slip Covers at Bed Bath & Beyond for $198. These slip covers are fantastic!!! They are like Spanks for furniture.  The sofa and love seat were small in scale and had a very low back and narrow arms so I was a little woried how they would fit. It turned out perfectly.  Don't you just love a happy ending?       The home is in a beautiful family neighborhood and just needed a gentle nudge to appeal to the under 35 set. The home goes on the market tomorrow and will hopefully sell quickly.

I recently wrote about a fire that spread through a Bardonia housing complex.  Less than 1 month later, another fire made the news here in Rockland County.   Early this morning, a fire damaged a New City home.  It appears t the cause may be from lighting a cigarette.  The situation was quickly handled by the New City Fire Department.   Here are 3 coverages that will come into a claim like this. Dwelling Coverage-     Covers any damage to the structure of the home.Personal Property     Covers furniture, appliances, and clothing.Additional Living Expense      This coverage will offset the cost of staying at a hotel room and going out to eat while your home is uninhabitable.   If you are concerned that your Rockland County Homeowners Insurance policy does not have adequate coverage, or you...
