If you are looking to sell your home, your goal is to get the most money possible in the shortest amount of time. One of the best ways to add value and appeal to your home is through home staging. You have a lot of options for how you want to go about it. You could hire a professional staging company, but that comes with a hefty price tag. Most of the time, a few simple fixes is all it takes to transform a living room. 

Today we are going to go through some of our most favorite, inexpensive home staging tips or you. We hope these will help you save both time and money when it comes time to sell your home.

A fresh coat of paint is always a good idea. Neutral, warm colors work best for highlighting the natural light in your home. This will make it easier to punch up the room with some colorful accessories and pull everything together.

A common design problem facing many homeowners is that they have no real entry way, as their front door opens up to the living room. To fix this, you can add a table, some lighting, and a rug to "fake a foyer" and make it feel like the living room and entryway are two different spaces.

A patterned rug, some pillows, or bright curtains add a ton of texture and an eclectic layer to the space, which is essential to a well-designed room.

In some cases, a "make-under" is just what you need. In the case of most fireplaces, taking some accessories and clutter away enhances the look and feel of the room greatly.


You could spend well over a few thousand dollars with a staging company, or you could do these fixes yourself for around $500. That's a small investment considering the value that you add to your home by adding those pieces.

Should You Use a Realtor When Buying New Construction?

Thank you for responding to my last video and submitting questions! I got a lot of great questions, and today I'll be answering one.

The question was whether or not you need to use a real estate agent when you buy new construction. This is a good question, and I have some thoughts on this topic.
  • The sales person for the new construction only represents the builder, so they will not be looking out for your best interests. This sales person is usually not a licensed Realtor, so they don't adhere to the code of ethics that we do.
  • Realtors have knowledge and expertise for a given area, so we know how to play ball with builders. We know how to negotiate terms to give you the best home that we can. 
  • A Realtor is also there to help you make better decisions on how to buy a home and what to buy in a home. We're not only thinking of this purchase, we're also thinking about how easy or difficult it might be to turn around and sell the home again.
Another reason to use a Realtor in this situation is because it's free. If you're lucky, they may even buy you lunch!


As always, if you need help buying or selling in Northern Virginia, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'm always here to assist you!

Interest rates are as low as they've been in 70 years. If you have a mortgage right now, you should be considering a refinance on your home. You may have missed your opportunity to do so two years ago, so now is your chance to redeem yourself and lock in a low rate on your home. 

You may not want to go through the hassle of refinancing, but it will save you thousands of dollars in the long run. It will cost you time and a little bit of money right now, but you'll be happy you did it later on. 

For example, on a $400,000 home with an interest rate of 5%, you'd be paying $2,147 per month, as opposed to a 4% interest rate where you would be paying $1,909 per month. That's a difference of $250 per month, and nearly $3,000 per year! Over the life of the loan you have the chance to save up to $85,000 dollars - that is huge. 

Imagine if you took that $85,000 and put it in a retirement fund with a compounded 6% interest. That could accumulate to $240,000 in savings, and if you add the $85,000 you began with, you'd be saving over $325,000.   

Saving a quarter of a million dollars is an absolute no-brainer.
