The owners of this 5,000+ sq.ft. historic home had previously listed the estate for sale twice, for a total of 462 consecutive days on the market with no offers.  Joan Inglis, owner and lead designer of Carolina Spaces, was called in to help.  She walked much of the 15.24-acre grounds and toured the main house and outbuildings with the sellers, making recommendations on what needed to be done to the interior and exterior of the property, including landscaping of the grounds, to prepare the estate for sale.  Carolina Spaces was also brought in for hands-on staging of the main home, as well as providing appropriate furnishings for some of the vacant rooms.

The Carolina Spaces team saw our home staging services lead to many successful sales during the first quarter of 2016. With dozens of homes staged and sold, it was hard to highlight just one. So, we've picked our top three favorite home staging projects of the quarter!
The Bronze goes to a Rock Hill, SC home staging project!
 
The homeowner of this $224,900 property in Rock Hill, SC recognized the need for professional guidance to get this home show-ready. Carolina Spaces came in, toured the entire property with the homeowner, and created a step-by-step DIY home staging plan to show off the home's features and attract potential buyers. Home staging worked, and this property was under contract in less than 25 hours!
 
The Silver goes to this Charlotte, NC home staging project!
 
 

This stunning $674,900 new construction in Charlotte, NC sat on the market for 9 months as a home builder's vacant spec home. Feedback from over 200 showings all came back consistent - the family room was too small. So, Carolina Spaces was called in to help! We brought in our stunning inventory and staged the property, paying close attention to the family room. Buyers have a hard time visualizing size and scale in a vacant property (truly, only 10% can visualize the potential of a property!), so we ensured that our staging showed room function and potential furniture placement. Our home staging worked, and this property was under contract in 19 days!

And...The Gold goes to this Charlotte, NC home staging project!
 
 
Both the homeowner and Realtor of this $242,000 condo in the NODA area of Charlotte, NC understood the importance of properly staging a home prior to listing on the market. They trusted Carolina Spaces' full-service home staging to transform the vacant condo into an appealing space to the NODA buyer.  Within hours of listing, multiple offers poured in, and this property was under contract in 0 days!
