When selling your home, “A picture is worth a ($) 1,000 words”

Quality of the photography is essential, you do not want your largest financial asset represented like this

 

 “Quality Presentation of a Home” is essential as well

When you look at photos of previous or current listings from a prospective real estate agent

 here are some questions that can help you assess the quality of the presentation of the home.

 

Are the homes presented updated or tired?


Are the homes presented in need of obvious repair?


Are the homes presented a reflection of personal design choices (colour/pattern)

that therefore would need to be changed?


Are the homes presented lack warmth (too de-cluttered) that they look boring?


Are the homes presented offering that “wow” factor that outshines the competition?

 Does the real estate agent offer professional services from quality photographers and professional home staging companies?  In today’s real estate market with over 96% of home buyers searching online first before narrowing down their selections to view properties, having fabulous photos is a must!

Feels Like Home 2 Me is in the Houzz!

I don’t know if you love Houzz like I do?  I have been a huge Houzz fan for several years now, and it has been my “go to” place to get visual inspiration and product information for design and decorating of my own home,  as well as a great way to keep on top of latest design trends and source out information for my home staging and decorating clients.  It is an absolutely fabulous resource, and has been an invaluable tool, especially with the iPad app, that I often use during decorating consultations.

So what exactly is Houzz?  Houzz.com describes it as a ”collaborative platform for home remodeling and design, bringing homeowners and home professionals together in a uniquely visual platform.”  If you haven’t had a chance to visit, make sure when you do, you have some time, because you will be drawn right in!

So I was very excited when I received the invitation to attend the Houzz event in Toronto at S.O.F.A., and as you can see I made it!  What an incredible event.  Cheryl Tiegs (aka super model) introduced the event and said many people are in awe of super models,  but she is in awe of of all of us and what we do.  Looking around the very well attended event I felt in awe  as well, so many creative dynamic people.

This event was to promote Houzz and encourage designer, decorators, stagers… to develop a profile and get involved in the visual dialogue.  Feels Like Home 2 Me has been developing our profile for a while and looks forward to you visiting us there, where you will find pictures of some of our work as well as “Idea Books” we have developed.  You can create idea books too and start cataloguing images that appeal to you,  you may even discover a certain style that you are leaning towards that may be different than you first thought!

Have fun in the Houzz!

Welcome to our new website and first blog!

What a special way to start our FLH2M blog and also launch our new website in the month of Breast Cancer Awareness.  We are very honoured to have our work featured in Canadian Home Trends Magazine’s “PINK” issue!

It is safe to say that all of us have been affected by breast cancer in one way or another.  Many of us have had or have family members, friends or even personal experience with this disease.  There are too many beautiful courageous women we have lost, and the annual awareness campaign is a powerful statement of how we, collectively, want to do what we can to help find a cure, help save more lives, and help make the journey more bearable for those who are on it.

Already fund raising efforts have made a significant impact, and today we can gladly say, that the majority of women who are diagnosed have a high survival rate!

Pink is a colour that represents love, femininity, and hope.  We celebrate this as we close out this month of October.
