Stage Your Home for success Wilmington, NC

STAGE YOUR HOME FOR SUCCESS

Home staging is an exciting way to create a beautiful, warm environment that can be enjoyed by all.  Whether you are staging your home to sell, opening your home to friends or you desire an instant face-lift, home staging is an easy and affordable design option that can be done room-by-room….

Living Areas– When a room is in order; it looks good, feels good and allows potential buyers to visualize their own things in the home. Make sure everything has its own place. Splashes of color can be achieved with flowers, artwork, or accessories.

Bathroom– Expect guest and prospective buyers to use your bathroom. Make sure your towels are clean and properly hung up. A common trick is to place fresh white towels for display purposes and keep your everyday towels out of sight.

Bedrooms– The biggest problem with staging a bedroom is to make sure there is ample storage available so that clothing and toys can be put out of sight. Invest a little money in a good closet organizer and you will be able to keep your bedrooms clutter-free and orderly.

Kitchen– A creative spice rack will keep your counters clean and can bring some flair to your kitchen. Spices come in many different colors and textures, so find a way to make them work for you. If you use copper pots, consider displaying them with a hanging pot rack.

Outdoors– Keep your tools and the kids’ toys out of sight. Maintain you landscaping properly: mow the lawn and trim the edges regularly. Prune any bushes or trees that block the view out of your windows.

 

10 inexpensive ways to freshen up your home:

1.     Buy new towels for the bathroom.

2.     Upgrade outdoor lighting.

3.     Install new doorknobs and cabinet handles.

4.     Make a centerpiece for you dining room table.

5.     Buy a new mailbox.

6.     Polish or replace your house numbers.

7.     Place fresh flowers or houseplants around the home.

8.     Buy color-coordinated pillows for the sofa and bed.

9.     Replace your worn doormat.

10.                         Set out subtle potpourri or scented candles.

Wilmington, NC; A Smarter Green Home

One of the most important trends in modern home design is incorporating environmentally friendly amenities. A recent Nation Association of Realtors survey of members showed there is increased demand among potential home-buyers for homes with green features. Nearly nine out of ten agents said their clients are very interested in energy-efficient features and their potential cost saving.

Here’s a look at the green housing treads that will not only bring an older home to the new millennium, but also attract younger buyers when it’s time to sell.

Copper Roofs-These roofs tolerate inclement weather and will last 100 years verses a composition roof that last only 30 years. Copper elements can also be completely recycled.

Low-Emittance (low-e); windows, doors, and skylights-This glass lets in natural light but blocks the sun’s UV rays that heat up the inside of a home. This glass will reduce energy consumption, and its special low-E glazing also stops the sun from fading fabrics, wall coverings and artworks.

Chemical-Free Lighting-LED (light emitting diodes) lighting contains no hazardous chemicals, uses 80 percent less energy than a traditional incandescent light bulb and can last up to 20 years.

Green Toilets-Green toilets conserve water ( which can save you 30 to 50 percent on your annual water bill) in different way: low-flow toilets use about 20 percent less water per flush, dual-flush toilets with two buttons give home owners the option of flushing with a half or full tank and pressure-assist toilets reduce water usage by half.

Induction Cooktops- The coils of an induction cooktop release their energy directly to the pot or pan and its contents. This means less energy is diffused in the cooking process.

Reclaimed Wood-Fast growing plants, and unused pre-cut wood find new life as gorgeous. Affordable countertops. Cork flooring is a great alternative to hardwood because it is extremely durable yet inexpensive.

Nontoxic Paint– To keep indoor air clean and cut down on landfill pollutants, use paints that don’t contain toxic volatile organic components.
