WEST FARGO—Home builders, real estate agents and homeowners have a new tool at their disposal in the quest for higher home sale prices.

Clients have the option of renting furniture piece-by-piece or asking its owners, Trever Hill and Susan Hozak-Cardinal, to professionally stage the home for them.

MOORHEAD – Local diners are bolstering the business of a small eatery that opened in the Hjemkomst Center last year as a service to museum visitors. The Heritage Snack Shack opened on a trial basis the summer of 2013. The plan was to close that September, but manager Kelly Wambach decided to give staying open year-round a shot. “We saw enough growth after our first three months that rather than closing Labor Day, we decided to go month-to-month and it went just fine,” Wambach said.
