Easy Tips for Staging a Home to Sell

If you’ve listed a property that will almost certainly be on the market for the Thanksgiving and end-of-the-year holidays, advise the seller to go easy on the decorations, says Joan Inglis, owner of Lake Wylie (North Carolina) Home Staging.“Put a holiday centerpiece on the dining-room table and then remove it after Jan. 1,” she says. Other advice from Inglis includes:

· Store toasters in the cabinet because it is almost impossible to keep them looking clean.
· Take all the magnets off the refrigerator.

· In a pricey home, get rid of any furniture that looks cheap. It interferes with the buyer’s ability to imagine themselves living there.

The Point Golf Course

If you haven't had a chance to play the Point golf course lately you should put it on your list. I played over the weekend and must say the greens are in the best shape I've seen in many years. Probably helped by the change in the aerate schedule as well as letting the bent grass grow a bit more in the summer heat. What a pleasure to putt on these greens. Bookmark and Share

What's land in The Point selling for lately?

Not much dirt/land moving these days so when it does it's an interesting look at prices. A lot on Yale Loop, which is in the gated Sconset Village in The Point Lake and Golf Club community closed recently for $63,500 for a .72 acre parcel. The list price was $87,000 and was offered in 2008 for as much as $129,000. Tax value is $112,500. Typical interier lots in 2003-04 were around the same value somewhere in the 60-70's which coincides with Case-Schiller indices.

Also, three lots in the Farms closed recently in the low 40's. Bookmark and Share
