Attending an auction soon?
Don’t come on an empty stomach! Auctions can be a long process, but, eating during an auction is considered a faux pas. Grab a snack before you head out, and get ready to bid.
Which celebrity item, would you rather bid on:
a) lock of hair
b) chewing gum (previously chewed, of course!)
c) an x-ray photo
Now, how much would you spend on them? 😝
These items are just some of the seriously weird celebrity items that have garnered thousands of dollars, for those "lucky" enough to have been in possession of them. Makes you wonder how they got them in the first place though... 🤔

Where one person sees junk, another sees beauty! 😍
Next time you attend an estate auction, look for items that can be repurposed into home decor items and furniture.
Here's a few ideas for inspiration:
Old stool? Turn it into an end table.
Picture frames? Remove the glass, add cork and make it a family message board.
Dresser drawers? Make it an under the bed storage container.
What's your favourite piece of re-purposed furniture?

There are a lot of myths, when it comes to bidding strategies.
Which ones work and which ones don't? It depends on the auction, but, here are a few quick myths - debunked!
MYTH - Hide behind a post, or at the back of the room during the auction.
REALITY-It’s much better to take a position in the middle of the room where everyone can see you.
MYTH - Never make the first bid
REALITY - A lot of people think this, but you might as well bid first. If you’re there, starting the process, then experience shows us you’ll have a better chance of still being there at the end.
MYTH - Come in with a strong bid early, and knock everyone else out of the park
REALITY - A lot of people try this, especially if they know they really want the property and have a good idea of what it’s worth. This can actually be a very effective strategy as it often takes the competition by surprise.

Thinking about selling your home by auction this Summer? 📣
If so, it's time to start thinking about staging!
Here are some surprising tips that work!
1. Colorful Potted Flowers by the Front Door
Your front door is one of the very first impressions home buyers, so it’s important to make this spot very inviting. .
2. Extra Pillows on the Bed and Sofa
Pillows have a way of making a space feel warmer and more comfortable. They also give you an opportunity to infuse some colorful accents and patterns to liven up the décor..
3. A White Bath Robe & White Towels
Luxury hotels usually offer white towels and white bath robes to their guests. Because of this, buyers subconsciously associate these things with a relaxing vacation or spa experience. Play on this psychology by hanging up a white robe in your master bathroom and putting fresh new white towels out on display..
4. A Tray with Coffee or Wine on the BedAnother fun home staging trick is to place a pretty tray on the bed in the master bedroom with a couple of coffee cups or wine glasses, and a bag of coffee or bottle of wine. This simple touch will have buyers thinking about relaxing in the space and unwinding after a long day. .
5. Set the Table
You want buyers to imagine their lives in the home you’re selling and one of the best ways to do that is by setting the dining areas.
Big, beautiful, and almost ready for your bids!

Have you ever heard of a "Candle Auction"? 🕯
An old British tradition from the 17th and 18th centuries,, candle auctions allow bidding to go on only as long as a short candle burns. The highest bid at the time of the candle burning out is the one that's taken.
I guess it's a good thing they didn't have "joke" candles back then. 😉
