38 Acres- Rector Corner Rd. Marshall, NC

The Story:

Rector Corner Rd was the first property where I convinced the seller that staging was crucial. When the seller reached out to us, he was very frustrated with the level of service he’d received from other firms and was ready to finally sell his property. When we went to take a look, you couldn’t make it five feet without getting sliced by thorns. After much determination, we made it to the top, only to discover an amazing ridge line that housed multiple homesites with south-facing views. We knew it was a gem!

After several tough discussions with the seller, he agreed to do two things: complete a septic improvement permit, and clear a path to the top ridge line where the house sites were located. We knew we wanted to do this as inexpensive as possible so we decided to knock out two birds with one stone.

In order for the septic contractor to get to the best homesites to dig test pits, he would obviously clear a path with his excavator in the process and open up a trail for buyers to see the top. It worked like a charm! The contractor spent a days work clearing and digging, and the property perked for a 3 bedroom house right on top of the ridge. We were then able to get buyers to the homesites, but we didn’t have to tote too many in the process. The property stayed on the active market for 16 days and closed in 60, with a majority of the delay due to the bank’s lack of appraisers.

This was quite an accomplishment as the property had currently spent over 530 days on the market without an offer. This goes to show the importance of staging and how crucial it is to selling your property. Take a look at the images below that give you an idea of how little of a road it actually takes to make such a huge difference in marketability.
