I thought August only had 30 days… is it a leap year?
Kidding of course. But I really did think that, and I can never remember that mnemonic song about the months of the year.
So here we are… on the doorstep of kids going back to school. It’s been a quiet week, but today’s list finally has some “meat” to it.
The first few minutes of the video are all about “staging”, and how to do it right.
If a buyer says, “This home is staged FOR SURE!”, it means one of two things:
- The owner either keeps their home in impeccable shape, or usually it’s…
- Because the staging is so fake that it’s pretty obvious.
Not all staging is created equal. A good example is the house on Lord Simcoe – not overdone, and it looks like it could be their own stuff. By the way, that home is terrific but there’s one thing that might hold a buyer back, and I’ll mention it in the video.
Also, there’s another “wheelchair-friendly” home in today’s list. They converted half of the main level (living/dining area) to a bedroom and expanded the powder room to include a “roll-in” shower. I’m guessing that there’s some kind of a ramp from the garage into the house as well.
That’s it for today – if you have a great sign that a home is staged, I’d love to hear about it. Let’s make a fun Top 10 list!
