As most people know, selling a home is a true challenge in the current real estate climate. Once I became aware of the competition, I realized I needed to do something to make my property more appealing…to stand apart from the others. I learned it is crucial to have the home “show well” in the photographs on a website just to entice the prospective buyer to visit the property in person. So, I did a little research and looked into hiring a home staging service. I knew I wanted to hire someone with credentials as well as a flair for current décor styles and the drive to succeed. I asked a couple of agents for recommendations, and then ultimately went to the internet for stagers in our area. That is how I found Cyndee Long of Seaside Home Stagers who is certified by the Real Estate Staging Association (as a “RESA-PRO”) and by the American Society of Home Stagers and Redesigners.
Simply put, Ms. Long has made our difficult (and at times emotional) staging process easy. She accommodated my schedule for all consultations and on-site work, she offered various levels of services, she had a wide range of complimentary sources to pull from, AND she did a FABULOUS job on our house; all the while keeping our needs for cost control and timeliness as her priority. Cyndee invested herself in this project which can be witnessed in the before and after pictures on her website. Her dedication and passion for the entire process was evident, often going the extra step to insure our satisfaction. We are truly delighted with her efforts and would highly recommend her services to anyone trying to sell their home (as long as they aren’t competitors in our market!). If I ever have need for interior design or staging in the future, I already know who to call…Cyndee at Seaside Home Stagers.

”Just wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was to have you stage the townhome we had listed at Park West. The change from a “vanilla” condo, that was in a great neighborhood, but pretty similar to the other one thousand (yes, there were almost that many listings for 3 bedroom, 3 bath townhouses; and almost 2,000 3 bedroom, two bath units) on the market at that time. In less than a month you had worked your magic, and we had three offers within a week.
I have recommended your services to everyone I talk to about listing their homes. The fact that you make the decisions as to what furniture and accessories will help the buyers to visualize themselves in the home in an uncluttered and cheerful manner by using what is available or can be rented at a nominal cost, both reduces the seller’s anxiety, and saves months of carrying costs with the frustrating feeling of not being able to “move on.” Being able to list a home staged by Seaside Home Stagers makes selling that home so much easier!”

In June of 2006 my husband and I bought a Garden Home Condo at Park West in Murrells Inlet. We thought we’d join the crowd and “flip it over” making a good profit. However, the market collapsed shortly after we purchased the property and we were stuck with trying to sell it in a down market. We tried for 13 months and finally gave up and rented it. We could not rent it for what our expenses were and so we lost money each month. This Spring we decided to try again to sell the condo. This time we decided to hire Cyndee Long of Seaside Home Stagers and within 2 weeks of putting it on the market we sold it. We not only had one offer, we had several. I might add that it is the only Park West Garden Home Condo that has sold since we sold out property. I can not recommend Seaside Home Stagers highly enough. I have no doubt that her decorating skill sold out condo.”

“I really loved working with Cyndee…to redecorate our beach house, the Flying Geese and was very pleased with the outcome. During the process, I was gently led by them when it came time to “purge” out-dated floral arrangements, pictures, and lamps. They helped minimize the house’s decorating flaws and were especially helpful in paint selections. Cyndee even made special pillows for one of the bedrooms with fabric I had purchased. They were so lovely that I was tempted to use them at my house. And I loved the “after” photos they took. My experience was excellent and I would recommend them to my friends and family. The result is a continued effort on our family’s part to offer a rental beach home which will enhance our guests enjoyment of their vacations at Garden City Beach. We believe a good time is worth revisiting.”
