REFs Choice – July 19th Edition


This is what happens when a Real Estate Agent tries to


wear two hats, that of a Real Estate Agent and that of a professional “Home Stager.”

Very interesting take on window dressing is all I can say.

And another……

See I went to this course on “Home Staging” and…


they taught you how to “stage” a house for sale.

Glad I went……

And this agent……

It really does look like he didn’t attend the training course on Home Staging that day….


Really how hard would it have been to move the chairs.

Then again if the agent didn’t have the time to do that then its no wonder……

1. the desk/file trays left of the computer are a mess

2. items haven’t been removed off the bed

3.the rubbish bin removed to take the picture.
