9 Mar , 2012  

Creative Home Stager's founder Carol Smith

Carol Smith, the founder of Creative Home Stagers, educated the CRESN group on what Home Staging is and the benefits of staging your home in any market.  She stunned the group with before and after pictures of recently staged homes.

Did you know that 94% of professionally staged homes sell on average of 29 days or less, compared to non-staged homes?

“Home staging” is the act of preparing a home, condo, or other property for sale in the real estate marketplace. Home staging is not a new term, but for many Charlotte homeowners and real estate agents the concept of “professional home staging” is shedding new light on how to promote a home in the real estate marketplace. more!
