Should I decorate my listing for the holidays?

We love getting into the spirit of the holidays! However, too many seasonal decorations take the focus off all your home has to offer. This year, go light on the inflatable lawn decorations and 48-piece train set that winds around the foyer. Instead, a few well chosen seasonal accents can make your home feel fresh and current. Here are four staging tips that will help you make the most of selling your home during the holiday season.

I was living in Florida and contacted Emily Bentley about a house in Waynesville, NC. My association with Emily started that day. Though I did not purchase that house, I told her I would be retiring in two years, and that I wanted to relocate to NC. Emily kept me updated on property in my price range for two years. Then I called her to say I was coming to NC in March 2019 for a week to look at a house. We met at the property only to learn it was under contract.I told Emily that was ok another house had my name on it. A street up from that property was a new house being built, about ten minutes later Emily called me and told me to come back to that neighborhood. She introduced me to the builder and he showed us the house. A week later we put a contract on that house. I feel if it had not been for Emily's extra effort I would not be a happy home owner now. Emily is a relationship builder and it shows in her work. Thanks again Emily for bringing me home!

Emily Bently did a wonderful job helping me get to know the area and focusing me on my hunt for the perfect place. She was incredibly patient helping me through the buy vs. build scenario. She even re-arranged her schedule when I added another day of househunting with less than 24 hours. She was very organized on having days planned in the most efficient way possible and did a good job giving me the flavor of the different areas.

Emily was highly recommended, by a friend, who said she had sold houses for two or three of his friends. Emily was always there for me, answered lots of questions, kept in close touch, both texting and on the phone, just about any day of the week, and often after working hours, when it was necessary. As I am almost 80yrs. old, she also kept in very close touch with my son, and daughter-in-law, who is a lawyer, which was a lot of extra work for Emily, but she did it gladly. In fact, she is still looking into something for me, with the buyer's lawyer, regarding NC Taxes. She is exceptional. I will definitely recommend Emily, with no hesitation, to anyone planning a home sale.

I was looking for a buyers agent and needed someone to help guide me through the process. Emily was flexible and showed me other homes than the first one I had initially put an offer on. Seeing these other homes made me realize that the first home was the one I wanted. Emily did a great job and I was able to finally buy my dream home. Emily even remembered how we talked about me wanting to plant banana plants around my house and she got me two small plants as a closing gift. Very thoughtful!
