InvestopediaIs Professional Home Staging Worth The Cost

To save money, would you wear your old track suit to the Oscars? Cut your own hair for your wedding? Probably not. When you're selling your home, not hiring a professional stager to decorate your home in a way that showcases its best assets might be exactly the same kind of penny-wise, pound-foolish choice. Statistics show that staged homes sell faster and for more money than those that are unstaged. Only 10% of prospective buyers can visualize a home looking any different than the way it looks when they walk in the door. They need help. What does staging achieve? Buyers’ realtors reported that 81% of their clients...

New York TimesStill Secret And Secure Safe Rooms Now Hide In Plain Sight

While serving as president of the New School, Bob Kerrey, the former United States senator, needed a residence befitting his station. The university moved him into a red brick Neo-Grec townhouse on West Fourth Street in Manhattan, which was previously owned by the actress Gwyneth Paltrow. The $20,000-a-month rental had many grand spaces for entertaining, including Mr. Kerrey’s favorite, a rooftop terrace. Yet, its most unexpected amenity was quite private and secretive: a safe room. “It looked like any old walk-in closet,” Mr. Kerrey said of the 8-feet-by-12-feet bulletproof space inside the third-floor master bedroom (a space the former Navy SEAL said he had little use for). “There...
