Call Sandy to discuss
HERE'S WHAT THE SELLERS HAD TO SAY:
"Selling your house in a tough market is really difficult: you have to let go of some of the things you love about your home and always keep in mind that you're trying to sell it to someone else, NOT yourself.
That's the first step, but what do you do next? We knew that we had a nice house in a popular place, but we also knew that we had lots of competition, and we wanted to make our house easy to buy.
We have used Sterling Property Services to help maintain our house: power-washing, painting and the like, and Roger always does a great job - he is the most thorough painter we've ever seen, and the results show it. When we decided to put the house on the market, we realized the interior needed repainting and the colors updated, and called him again. That's where Sandy's help came in: she assessed all the rooms, found coordinated colors that emphasized the best features of the house, and suggested a number of simple things we could do to make an empty house feel like a place you'd want to live.
The results speak for themselves: the house got lots of showings, and sold after only five weeks on the market.
Thanks Sandy and Roger!!"

Staging is a real estate marketing strategy that uses standard design principles such as harmony, color and focal point to create maximum appeal.
Staging focuses attention on the best features of your house to make it attractive, warm and inviting, but not overly personal.

"We recently had the pleasure of working with Sandy LeRoy of Sterling Property Services, Hendersonville, NC in the initial assessment of our home prior to our listing it for sale. We were very pleased with her advice and recommendations. Sandy looked at our furniture arrangements, at the 'objects d'art' that were on the shelves and walls, and the color groupings in certain room that worked (or didn't). Sandy offered clear suggestions to capture a buyer's eye and imagination with respect to each room and to maximize the "wow" impact of the very important "first impression" via pictures and internet.
We appreciated Sandy's efforts to utilize what we had, without undue expense in this time of potential transition. Sandy emphasized use of plants, real and silk, to soften and enhance areas where furniture and/or trinkets might have detracted. At the end of our appointment, with Sandy's help in positioning furniture in two room and her discernment in a third room, we came away with arrangements that made absolute sense - a "why didn't we think of that?' experience!
All said, we found a real value in Sandy LeRoy's experience and the excellent service provided. We would recommend Sandy and Sterling Property Services to anyone who wishes to gain a better edge in the real estate market."

"Sandy, thank you for helping us sell our house so quickly. We put it on the market Friday and got an offer Monday evening. How's that for fast? We really think the home staging you did made it easier for buyers to see themselves in our home (minus all our extraneous clutter and junk!) It's really amazing how rearranging a few things and clearing the clutter could make such a difference. Thanks again."

"Another successful project with Sandy preparing a home for sale in Tryon, NC. With very little money and lots of sweat equity the property was transformed under Sandy's guidance. There were multiple offers within 16 days, and it sold for $3,500 over the asking price. Preparing your home for sale with an expert like Sandy really pays off!"
