  • Karen Otto and Lance Selgo Staging & Photo Styling, The Big Pictureold

    in Real Estate

    Staging and photography go hand in hand not only with the homes you stage but with your brand! The big picture is that with access to the Internet, a prospective homebuyer does not need to leave the comfort of their home to decide whether or not to see a property. This means the first showing of a property will most likely take place online. With over 90% of buyers shopping online first for everything, a home for sale needs to be ready for its online debut. Time-strapped homebuyers often make a decision right at their computer screen whether the house is worth getting in the car or plane to see. Great photos are one of the most important tools today’s seller has in getting their house seen and sold. There is never a second chance to make a first impression. Home staging and photography work in tandem for making the best first impression. Whether online through amazing photos or in person as the buyer walks up to the door, a staged home presents better online in photographs as well as in person.

    Hear Rep. Bill Otto and "the Lineball Sisters" discuss during the 2nd hour all manner of Kansas small town life after these news stories.

    Counterspin (30 min.)  This week on CounterSpin: Republican presidential candidates disagreed on many things, but when it came to the idea of raising the minimum wage, they were in concert: It would be a “disaster,” increase joblessness and knock us out of international competition. Media usually present the issue as one of workers vs. business, but that’s not the whole story. We’ll get a different angle from Holly Sklar of the national network called Business for a Fair Minimum Wage.
