Everyone in the industry has differing opinions on staging your home to sell. I believe that making it a comfortable atmosphere helps make your home sell. From time-to-time, I run across great ideas on staging and today I wanted to share this article on staging your kitchen to make the buyer "bite".
Here's a quick quote from the article linked below that I love:
"Put it away—put it all away. We’re looking at you, coffee maker, blender, knife block, standing mixer, and toaster oven. 'And don’t forget the top of the refrigerator,' says Amy Bell, a home staging expert at Red Chair Home Interiors in Cary, NC."

So you have decided you are ready to buy your first home.... Now what?
"I was recently awarded a new job with my company in a different location and was faced with the daunting task of relocation. I met with multiple realtors in order to get my home in Tuscaloosa sold; Debra was my agent of choice. When we first met, she was 100% honest with me on the current reality of the home market. She was able to show me multiple homes similar to mine that were either on the market or had sold recently which gave me a good idea of the correct price to list my home at. We decided on a listing price quickly, Debra placed my home on MLS and that same night another agent contacted her about showing my house. The first person to look at my home made an offer which I attribute to Debra's diligence on the front end. Through the contract process, Debra kept me in the loop at all times with questions from the buyer, repairs that were required, suggestions on who I could use to help with repairs and any other small details that I can't think of right now. The process of selling your home can be stressful, but with realtors like Debra Smith your worries and stress aren't nearly as much because of her hard work. A big thank you is the least I can say, thanks Debra!"
