A Fresh Look Design, Charlotte Partners with The Homes of Distinction Tour

I am thrilled to announce A Fresh Look Design, Home Staging and Design was asked to participate in the Homes of Distinction Tour in Lake Norman, benefitting the Levine Children's Hospital.   The builder, Jay Robinette, is building a spectacular $2.2 million, 6,000 square foot custom home at 20000 Colony Point in Cornelius, NC.  The home is open for tour to the public the first two weekends in December, where all proceeds benefit the Levine Children's Hospital, which is a charity dear to my heart. A Fresh Look Design will be designing the Great room and two additional upstairs bedrooms and their adjoining bathrooms.

I toured this beautiful home and met the home owner last week.  I was super impressed with her generosity to open her home (and delay moving into this gorgeous home right on the lake) to help raise funds for the Levine Children's hospital.  I will be partnering with AFR Furniture who will provide the furniture and accessories for the project. They provide stylish and affordable furniture to rent for homes or businesses.  I will keep you posted as we go and feel super blessed and grateful for the opportunity!  Stay tuned!

Home Staging is the Best Improvement says Zillow

The real estate market is hot and in full swing, and home sellers are recognizing the benefits of home staging. According to an April 2014 Zillow Digs survey of real estate professionals and interior designers nationwide, the primary enhancements when selling a home are curb appeal and home staging. It is advantageous for homeowners to focus on home staging which prioritizes minor improvements and brings the maximum increased value for mass buyer appeal. Professional stagers know the current market trends and can skillfully identify enhancements to increase market value and provide the best return on investment. Investments such as updated lighting fixtures and cabinet door handles, modern neutral paint colors, clutter free spaces and inviting landscaping all add value.

The other critical home improvement recommended in the Zillow survey is to enhance curb appeal and I totally agree! A Fresh Look Design clients in the Charlotte area benefit by receiving a 26 point curb appeal checklist that is incorporated into all our home staging consultations. You only get one chance to make a first impression, so make it wow!!! (Read more about first impressions in this post). A clean entryway with a fresh coat of paint, new doormat, pots of colorful flowers, trimmed bushes with fresh mulch shows potential buyers you care for your home.

Stagers sell homes faster and for more money, by highlighting the features of a house while compensating for its imperfections. This survey reinforces the significant value of the cost Home Staging brings to sellers entering the real estate market. Again, the cost of staging is always less than the cost of your first price reduction on your home!
