Potential home buyers need to visualize the property as their future home, so showcasing the main living areas makes perfect sense, and will give you the biggest return on your investment! Buyers want a living area that is uncluttered and inviting, and a master bedroom that is a retreat from the stresses of everyday life. Staging these areas leads to higher dollar values offered for the home and less time on the market!

Don't let your property sit on the market un-staged, undergoing price reduction after price reduction. Let our award-winning home staging help your home sell faster and for the most money possible!

Carolina Spaces had the honor of completing numerous home staging projects during the third quarter of 2016:

  • Providing DIY home staging consultations to sellers and Realtors®
  • Furnishing and Staging beautiful vacant properties (resale, new construction and model homes) with our inventory of new and name brand furnishings
  • Staging lived-in properties using the homeowner's own furnishings - supplementing where needed
  • Providing renovation recommendations and material selections to homeowners, new construction home buyers and real estate investors
  • Creating relationships with new clients! 

After we reviewed our successes - and with many stagings to choose from - our team picked our Favorite Home Staging project of Q3! 

This new construction home in Charlotte was staged prior to listing to ensure that the home was show-ready before hitting the market. Carolina Spaces staged both the interior and exterior living areas of this home using our inventory of new and name brand, designer furnishings.

The result? This $1.2 Million staged home was under contract in 14 days!


For luxury home staging, it is important that the quality of furnishings used in the staging are appropriate for the quality and price point of the home. Marketing high end real estate requires a different home staging strategy. To impress high end buyers, the staging must enhance the home's luxury feel and convey a luxury lifestyle. Quality is visible! So Carolina Spaces uses only high end, name brand furnishings that are custom selected for each of our luxury home staging projects. We make sure these properties are presented at their best. Find more information on our award-winning, luxury home staging services is available at here.

Carolina Spaces can help your home sell faster and for the highest price possible - at any price point!  Don't risk losing money with a price reduction!  There is a reason why Carolina Spaces is the market leader locally, and one of the top staging and design companies nationally.

Trust your largest investment - your home - to our professional, award-winning team of home staging experts!
