Fun Down the Shore

Share This Post


We have been having so much fun this Spring!  We purchased some new furniture while in High Point NC for the Home Staging portion of our business.  It arrived just in time for its debut in Point Pleasant NJ.    This was a vacant sell by owner situation; so it was a perfect fit.  We were able to meet our clients budget and staging needs.   The homeowners had painted all the walls and stained the floors darker than they were originally so the new look framed our furniture perfectly. DSC_7181_nat (1)

When we stage we make sure that we focus on the demographics of the area…..We want to make sure that the prospective buyers feel a sense of belonging….We want them to make the connection with the home.  We are blessed that we live “down the shore” so we can get real creative with our props.

Before and After

As a realtor or home stager, have you ever walked into a home that is going to be marketed for sale and there is no time for a good sprucing up? As the owner of Harmonizing Homes; home staging/real estate marketing company, I questioned our ability to provide our standards and brand.
