We gave 4 cats now & 2 dogs. They were all either humane society or rescue. It's much better than buying a breed IMO.

Here's a hilarous view of some homes in Chicago who had nearly perfect MLS photos, some who didn't, and still another who is simply creepy. What do you think? 
 
For a litte real estate amusement, let's check out these real estate wins and fails...

+Melissa Marro that was hilarious! But that listing with the picture of the foot on the hardwood. Is that a joke? We went and checked it out on Redfin? Ugh-- "april fools anyone?" lol

I actually had a white slipcovered sofa in my home until I needed to take it and put it into inventory. I loved it because I could wash and bleach it. 
 
What do you think, could you live with a white sofa in your home or is it just for pretty pictures?

All of my staging sofas are white with covers. I take the covers off when in transport and storage...and...can have them cleaned or wash them. Never have to worry about not having "the right color" in inventory.

Because I've been blogging about my painted furniture, Milk Paint company, General Finishes, sent me a box of goodies. How awesome is that?

Today's before and after paint project makeover. I need a console table for my staging job Thursday. I paid $10 for this piece. Paint sure changed its value.

I am so envious on how you can use these coastal feel pieces. It looks great Melissa.

I find it interesting that #autoawesome is now adding filters. I wonder how it determines which filters to use.

I don't think I like this. As a business, a visually driven one at that, our photos are our brand, and we should retain control of the visual images we use in our branding.

We've been staging like crazy! Here is one of our most recent staging jobs that sold before we even got the photos back from +Wally Sears Photography. 
 
Photos of this new Jacksonville home staging project just back from the photographer. This home was previously listed for about 45 days prior to being staged. It is already under contract in only 6 days (less time than it took to get photos!)

Congratulations and great job on staging!

Fellow stagers, does this fit you? 
 
Do you know the signs of whether you are a home stager in wait, or if maybe you should really hire one instead? Here is a comedic look at this valuable real estate profession and what just might be some indications that you should step away from that lamp (or grab another cart)!

Lol. Well, 20 years from now I hope I look as good as Alec Guinness (which anagrams to "genuine class", btw).

I've been seeing Dr Dingfelder for about a year. He's been patient, kind, and really helps me get to the root of my issues so that I can consider them and make changes to help my life. I've had serious depression issues and am feeling much more positive. I really appreciate the way he speaks about issues. I would highly recommend him.

We dined with friends who are vegans and despite both my husband and I being hard and fast carnivores, we had a great brunch. The food and service was excellent. I had the black bean burger and it was delicious. I would go again, even without my vegan friends.

The food and service was extremely disappointing and lackluster. My family has recently moved to the area and were excited to find a close Japanese restaurant. Unfortunately this one failed to impress in any way. It was high priced food for what you got.

Chipotle is a great place for semi-healthy fast food. I like that you have #gluttenfree options. I would recommend eating outside when possible. Inside, the noise level is often nerve grating, the chairs are uncomfortable, and it is freezing. All of these problems are non-existent outside.

I don't eat seafood. I hate it. When a friend wanted to meet here, I begrudgingly agreed because I had already eaten and thought that I would just have some coffee and maybe dessert. She ordered one of the specials, but changed out the fish that came with it. Unfortunately she forgot to request that it not be blackened. When it came, and she disliked it, the waitress and the chef quickly replaced it with something she would like. For dessert, we shared a bread pudding and it was delicious. I would come back just for that and the outside dining atmosphere, right on Jax beach.

After having some changes in my eyesight, I went to St Johns Eye Associates. Because I have a condition that significantly impact my eyesight, they took the precaution of every test that would provide markers for problems. They were professional and friendly. The selection of glasses made my decision really hard - there were too many great ones to chose from.

If I'm shopping for shoes, I'm shopping at Dillards. The St Johns Town Center location has one of the larger selections in #jacksonvillefl.
