"Looks just like a model home!" Those were the Realtor's words used to describe this charming home in the Ballantyne area of South Charlotte when it was listed on the market after home staging by Carolina Spaces.
After a fresh coat of paint and a kitchen facelift, this previous rental was still lacking a "wow" factor. The vacant rooms appeared small, and felt cold and uninviting. Carolina Spaces furnished and staged the main living areas, the master bedroom and two secondary bedrooms to showcase this home in its best light. The results were immediate!
Within 2 days of staging, this $289,000 Charlotte area home was under contract.
Don't let your property sit on the market un-staged, undergoing price reductions while you're still paying the carrying costs. Let our award-winning home staging help your home sell faster and for the most money possible!

Carolina Spaces, the leading home staging, interior design, and model home merchandising firm in North and South Carolina, was featured in the Redfin blog "37 Home Staging Experts Share the Secret to Appeal to Buyers in Your City." Joan Inglis, Carolina Spaces' owner and lead designer, provided her expertise on how home builders and home sellers can appeal to buyers in Charleston, SC.
Carolina Spaces' owner and lead designer, Joan Inglis, was recently asked by Redfin to provide her secrets on appealing to buyers in the Charleston, SC area, and her response was featured in their blog "37 Home Staging Experts Share the Secret to Appeal to Buyers in Your City."
"Charleston, SC home buyers want to see luxury finishes that are both functional and comfortable - large showers with overhead rainfal; kitchens with an abundance of natural light; and light fixture packages that complement the architecture of the home. The most preferred colors in new construction, updating materials, and paint are neutrals mixed with whites. Popular accent colors are all shades of blue.
Buyers want an open floor plan, but they get confused on how to layout furniture. Builders and sellers need to furnish the open living, kitchen and eating area at a minimum in vacant houses. Sellers are selling square footage; they should never show wasted space."
