3 Reason Staging Your Home Pays off 

  1. A staged home looks better in pictures
  2. Homes that are staged typically list for a higher price and sell for a higher price
  3. Potential buyers will stay longer during a showing

Staging Graphic

  1.      A staged home looks better in pictures

The old saying, “One picture is worth a thousand words” might have been coined for a staged home. Multiply that 1,000 words by the number of pictures your agent is going to post online for your listing. That is a powerful pictorial message and a strong story presented online. Literally 1000’s of words conveyed by the pictures attached to your homes listing.

Why are good pictures so important?

Not everyone can fill up a space in their mind or imagine furniture

It was an honor and a pleasure to prepare, market, list and sell 1917 Grand Ave. San Rafael CA 94901. This sale was near and dear to my heart because, as childhood neighbors, our families knew each other for over 50 years. The seller’s parents built the home in 1952 and the daughter’s fixed it up to today’s buyer's needs prior to going on the market. The result was beautiful. I staged, professionally photographed, thoroughly marketed and received 6 offers in 1 week. The buyers were all very competitive but an all cash no contingency offer beat the rest of them out. Listed at $815,000 and sold for $967,000.

Even in today’s market, taking the proper presale steps, bring in multiple offers and over asking bids more often than not. Don’t make a rookie

With inventory continuing low and with plenty of demand out there, there is NO bad time to sell your home in Marin, Sonoma or San Francisco counties..we are so fortunate to be in such a high-demand desirable area! To that end, Fall 2017 is just around the corner and there are buyers out there looking for their new home.  As a realtor, I see homes and homes for sale year round and although spring tends to be the busiest selling season, real estate in Marin, Sonoma and San Francisco counties is well worth pursuing this time of the year.....there are always folks who need to move and are out there looking for their new home!

Folks are back from vacation, feeling refreshed and looking forward to upcoming fall activities as the season changes and with

16 D Oliva Dr. Novato CA 94947: SOLD!sold16-oliva-dr_hilary_davis_500

What a pleasure it was to help my Seller clients prepare and sell their condo. With my seller on board, I got the unit properly prepared, staged, professionally photographed and on the market in record time. This was important to them as they had an out of town job offer and had to act fast. The unit showed beautifully and received multiple offers and sold quickly with an all cash offer.

I was not surprised as the location is fantastic and the views beautiful plus it's a desirable 2 bedroom 1.5 bath end unit in the Parkhaven Complex.

If you, or someone you know, is thinking about selling please have them call me for a no obligation free consultation. Doing things right pre-sale will make all the difference

6 Plaza Loma Novato, CA 94947 - Sold with Grace!

I am not easily excitable but I do feel things very deeply and intensely. I know...seems like opposing traits. I emote from the inside vs the outside which is best displayed when I watch The Ellen Show. Yes, I watch Ellen! Why? Because her show evokes emotions from me and everyone around her.  When she helps someone in true need or makes a dream come true it reaches into my soul and I can feel what they are feeling. But...if I went on her show I don't think I would jump and up down and scream like every single other person. There is very little that draws that kind of reaction from me so I guess I can be moved to laugh or cry but not to bounce and scream. Someday when I make it to The Ellen Show
