Our first contributor has given us a GREAT article. The Title is Mary's Staging Advice. It's loaded with steps to help you 'stage' your house yourself. This is usually done in real estate if the feedback is that the house is not tidy, cluttered or extremely styled. Sometimes, your house reflects you which is great, except if your trying to sell it to any potential buyer. Sometimes people have a hard time visualizing the house as their own and Mary's tips on how to stage without paying a fortune to have it done includes one item that anyone could try whether they're staging their home, having an open house or having company and want to give the house a baked apple pie smell. It's an extremely cost effective recipe you more than likely already have the ingredients for. The article is in the Tips From Professionals section of the page and Mary's contact information is listed on the NEW 'Contributors' section.
