This may be a good time for you to learn more about the real estate housing market. While more people are steering towards attached homes, you might be able to sneak into the detached housing market.

Home staging is very important when it comes to trying to sell a house. An empty house might appear cold, lonely and barren. But adding a little something to fill it up could give just enough warmth to the space.

Home staging
