New listings decline as home prices ease

Posted by Nancy Ball on Tuesday, May 5th, 2015 at 4:41pm.

Spring has arrived!

My apologies for no newsletter last month as I had a terrible 3 week cold but still managed to help 6 clients get the sale of their homes. I know the media is saying sales and prices are dropping but don't believe everything you hear. I am producing results in this competitive market! Anything I can do to help you or someone you know just ask! 

Special thanks to Neel Roberts, Sharon Numerow, Kevin & Betty Saskiw and Karen Chambers for the referrals. A special thank you has been mailed to you :-) I appreciate your continued support.  

Celebrating my 10th Anniversary this month with my company "First Glance Home Staging" and I have helped over 450 clients! Any inquiries please visit or see the Q & A of this issue. 

P.S. Don't forget to sign up in the draw for our Trip for 4 to California! 

Talk soon,

ASK Nancy

Q: Nancy what do you do when you stage a home and what do you charge?

A: When I stage a home I make suggestions to best present your home to the target buyer by using the least amount of money and time so it can look great for professional photos. I try to use what items you already have and will only suggest to buy items if it will be the best bang for your buck. I work with you as a team and we decide what works. I bring a rolodex of paint samples just in case. I also provide visuals of what can help. I do not charge for this service if you decide to list with me.  


Celebrating my 10th Anniversary this month and I helped over 450 clients! I have been hired after the sale to help design and organize homes for both Realtors and their clients. I love help making someone's home personal to their tastes and organizing each space.
