 "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!"

If your house is staged, the buyers who come to see it will be impressed. They'll also be able to imagine how they could live there and begin to form the emotional attachment that leads to a sale.


 "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!!"

After: A Neutral Approach

 

"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."

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.
