How about checking them out yourself by visiting a home that's for sale and is staged?

Hi again!

Yes, spare bedroom, especially in a 2 bed unit is pretty essential. Buyers can always reconfigure it any way they want it but if you are selling it as a 2 bed, I would present it as a 2 bed.

And yes, I hate to say it but painting the room a neutral color would be worth the time. It cost little, would take a day of your time and could make a difference especially if there are a lot of other units in your development to choose from. Buyers don't want to envision and they don't want to face doing what you yourself have admitted to not wanting to do. They just want to be able to move in without looking at a color which may be a turn off for them.

Hi. Great question. The answer certainly depends on the quality of the choices made for each project. Are you planning to sell the home? Looking for an appraisal to hit a certain number for a home equity loan? Here in the northeastern part of the country we "live" inside for most of the year. However, a certain amount of curb appeal is required to get a buyer in the front door. Whatever you decide, keep the choices in-line with comparable homes in your neighborhood. I am not sure which part of New Jersey you call home, however feel free to visit my website to search for comparable homes.

1st the direct answer is that home is pending with settlement scheduled for 6/15, exactly 2 weeks from today. I know you say "Other/Just Looking", but if you want to send me an email with your requirements, I can send you listings as they occur. That way if there is something that interests you, you will know about it before it is too late, like 30 Twin Ponds. There is no obligation for this service and I would be happy to help. ... more

Try Interior Motives on Rt 202 in Readington. 908-806-4461. I also used in the past Quintessial Touch in Clinton, but not sure they are still around. Good luck!

There are many books on the subject of small spaces that may be able to help. Definitely look for a sofa that the legs can come off. Usually if the legs twist off, the back of the sofa will be less than 30" high. This height will fit through doorways and in tight spaces. You may also look for a unit that is in pieces, like a sectional. Even if you just buys pieces that make up a stand size sofa, having the unit in two pieces really helps with moving. You will be able to stand the sofa on end and just slide right through the doorway. Also, don't go for a sofa style that has high arms. Arms are harder to get through doorways. Scandinavian furniture is on the smaller side, which is why Ikea is so popular with city livers. ... more

Ed- I believe it would be illegal to pay an agent a fee for referrals unless you are a license real estate agent. It is against our code of ethics. However, it is acceptable to make some good connections and establish relationships so that if I have a client who could benefit from your services I could arrange to have them speak with you. In return, if you have a client who may be looking to buy or sell, I would be happy to help them!! I would be happy to meet with you at your shop to see to see what services you provide and possibly introduce you to my clients. Love to meet you :)
