Home staging is the art of helping buyers visualize a space as livable. But do you need to physically haul in furniture and spend thousands of dollars to tap into their imagination?

Not necessarily.

With virtual staging, you can take that same mid-century modern couch, vintage throw rug and flower vase you’d normally find in your stager’s U-Haul and insert them into your listing photos digitally instead. Goodbye heavy lifting, hello drag and drop!

By specially arranging computer-generated furnishings and props in key rooms, you can stage your bare-bones, vacant house to make buyers see, “Oh, I could put my desk right there!” or show visually how to configure an awkward layout. It costs a fraction of what you’ll pay for traditional staging and

Opportunity Zones in Real Estate

Savvy real estate investors throughout Boca Raton and Delray Beach are already taking advantage of the savings that a little-known change to the tax code has provided. Dubbed “Opportunity Zones,” these designated sections encourage new development and investments in distressed areas by way of preferential tax treatment.

The best part? Local examples of Opportunity Zones in Delray Beach are currently available for development.

Defining an Opportunity Zone

Opportunity Zones came about as a result of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The “Investing in Opportunity Act” contained in this legislation allows State and local governments to work together to identify economically-distressed areas ripe for reinvigoration via private capital.

Thinking of selling your home and wondering what it’s worth?  You may want to be careful about the home value estimates you see online because many are either far above or far below the true market value. 

Boca Raton home sellers who set their expectations on inaccurately overestimated home values may fall victim to overpricing their homes for sale which will ultimately lead to frustration because they don't sell.  When a home is overpriced, it will languish on the market for months, causing multiple price reductions as they "chase the market" and most likely result in a lower sale price than if they had priced it right from the beginning.

Moving to a new neighborhood brings with it a long list of questions. What are the neighbors like? Are there kids in the area? It is safe? What are the best places to shop?

So, issues like churches in the area or the demographics of your neighbors are simply off-limits.

The Fair Housing Act: why your Realtor can’t always tell you what you want to know
