Smart Staging Solutions for the Owner Occupied House

As a home stager, I hear weekly this song from people getting ready to sell their occupied home:
“My closets are stuffed, I hate my living room sofa, Grandma’s old dinette set looks shoddy, and those oak cabinets in the kitchen are not going to fly with the younger buying bunch. Sure, you wish for a home that looks like the ‘AFTER’ reveal of your favorite HGTV show. A house where everything is perfectly in place–plump pillows perking up your living room sofa, stylish accessories adoring your lovely kitchen, and all your closets looking like Martha Stewart spent the weekend in there.”

Updates from the 3/9/2017 Cedar Park City Council Meeting

Last night the Association attended the Cedar Park City Council meeting to speak out against the section in their sign ordinance policy banning temporary signs off premises!
If you remember two weeks ago, the Association spoke out against multiple items on the proposed changes to the city’s sign ordinance. Due to the actions of Christy Gessler two weeks ago, the city changed time frames for stakes and wood signs which affected the ability to place a for sale sign on property. The City Council unanimously passed the proposed changes on that section.

Over the past several months, members of the Williamson County Association of REALTORS® have been involved in working with city leaders in Cedar Park and Leander on their development of sign ordinances which impact REALTORS’ ability to market homes successfully. Association members Darian Rausch and Christy Gessler and the Association’s Governmental Affairs Director, Kent Prickett have been instrumental in shedding light on some problematic ordinances the cities were considering implementing. Although these ordinances create obstacles to REALTORS®, the bigger issue is how they cripple a homeowner’s ability to sell property.
