My husband and I decided to sell our mountain ski house in September. Houses and condos were selling poorly then, the average time on market was 6 to 8 months, but we were craving a warm winter somewhere southern and decided to give it a go. Vacation homes in our area are usually sold furnished, and usually sold shabbily furnished! We were determined that ours would be the exception. I located new sofa slipcovers on eBay at a great price. We took a ride to our favorite Swedish home store and spent about $200 on pillows, flower pots, prints and a cool wine rack. Back home, we plumped the new pillows on the sofas, placed the flowerpots on our cleaned off shelves, hung our prints in neat rows and filled the wine rack with bottled water with catchy labels. Our home looked simple, fresh and modern. And it sold in one week!
