You've purchased the property and have rehabbed it and now it's time to sell it. Are you prepared to do everything you can to get the best possible price and return on your investment? Sure, in this market, houses are selling fast but with the lack of inventory, don't you want a bidding war over your property? Or are you willing to chance leaving money on the table? Real estate investing and home staging go hand-in-hand.
When it comes to vacant homes, 90% of the population cannot visualize in their minds how or if their belongings will fit into a space. … (0 comments)

home staging: HOME STAGING RANCHO CUCAMONGA - 07/11/12 06:05 AM
When Kristan Stacey-Graf signed her new Rancho Cucamonga listing she called on Pro Staged Homes to help her client prepare the house for market. Having worked with us on a previous listing, Kristan knew we would go above and beyond the call of duty and do everything necessary to assist her and her client.
We prepared a written consultation for the client and were then hired to implement those recommendations. We brought in the necessary people and resources and proceeded with our plan, which included:
Pulling the carpeting from the powder room and tiling it, replacing the mirror and removing some … (6 comments)

home staging: HOME STAGING IN TEMPLE CITY - 07/11/12 03:59 AM
Pro Staged Homes was called in to help these Temple City homeowners get their property sold. It had been on the market for 90 days with no offers. The new listing agent brought us in because he knew we could help put this property in market-ready condition. The issues? There were a few. 1) The house is currently rented out to several tenants, each renting their own room and sharing the kitchen, baths and living areas. 2) The front part of the house had been added on as the owners worked out of their home, so they added on an office … (3 comments)

home staging: Home Staging 101 PREPARING THE HOME FOR SALE - 07/07/12 01:54 AM
It's home staging 101. The basic things a seller has to do if they want their home to sell in a reasonable amount of time and for the best possible price offer. Preparing the home for sale. By now, everyone has heard the news, you have to:
Clean
Declutter
Depersonalize
Those are the top three items every seller must complete before they even think about listing their home. If the house doesn't show great curb appeal and clean, spacious-looking, updated rooms in outstanding online photos there won't be many serious buyers showing up to view it, it won't get top-dollar and … (4 comments)

home staging: HOME STAGING – YOU BOUGHT YOUR HOME NOW HOW DO YOU FURNISH IT - 06/09/12 10:50 AM
Congratulations! You just bought you new home. It may be your first or maybe you’re up sizing or down sizing, whatever the reason, all you have to do now is furnish it. As a home stager and interior redesign professional, I am often asked where I got my staging furniture and accessories or to purchase them for clients.
Furnishing your new place can seem daunting. It’s a lot of space to fill and having just taken on the expenses that come with owning a home, money may be a little tight when it comes to decorating your new space.

home staging: HOME STAGING: DOES MORE EXPENSIVE MEAN BETTER QUALITY AND RESULTS? - 05/25/12 04:55 AM
Does being more expensive mean better quality and results? Many people believe that when an item or service costs more it must mean that it's because the quality or service is better. Some times, that is true. I admit I am a name brand shopper,  particularly when it comes to food and groceries. I'm sorry but in my opinion, my Haggen-Dazs ice cream tastes way better than any other national or store brand out there. And I like my Bounty pper towels and Quilted Northern toilet tissue a lot better than those other supposed leading brands.
And when it comes to … (2 comments)

home staging: CLAREMONT CA HOME SELLS IN ONE DAY! - 05/15/12 06:43 AM
 
Claremont View Home Sells in One Day! The listing agent for this beautiful Claremont CA view home had never used a home stager before. She had shown the property several time but there were no takers. After taking our advice to remove the existing furnishings and bring in up-to-date furniture and accessories, the home was re-presented.
The result? The house sold in one day! The buyers had viewed the property before it was staged and decided it wasn’t the right house for them. After being persuaded to come back for another look after staging, they bought it.

home staging: ARE YOU TAKING MONEY OFF THE TABLE? - 05/14/12 06:47 AM
I ask myself all the time why one would take money off the table when there may not be a need to. I'm hearing that home prices are rising, rates are low, there are buyers but not enough homes for sale. So, if this is true, why aren't the properties that are on the market not selling?
I think that we all would agree that the right pricing is critical to the success of selling a home. Second to that success is probably location. And third, condition. Obvously pricing is under our control. If the property is priced correctly, you're one-third … (2 comments)

home staging: VACANT HOME STAGING: CAN YOU JUSTIFY THE COST? - 03/04/12 11:44 PM
Home staging. Can you justify the cost? Home staging gets a lot of buzz these days. Home stagers say vacant homes sell faster and for a better price. They say you have to have your property staged if you want it sold in this market.  They say that buyers can't imagine what an empty house would look like, that you have to show how each space can be used and what it might look like when there is furniture and belongings in there. Home stagers say you have to present an environment and atmosphere that will draw buyers in and create … (3 comments)

home staging: WHAT HOME STAGING DOES FOR SELLERS - 01/31/12 05:48 AM
I've been thinking a lot about my job as a home stager and what my business does for people who are selling their homes. Investing (yes, home staging is an investment) in staging your home can bring you a return of nearly 300%! That is HUGE. Where else in this economy and market can you earn such a return?Most of today's buyers don't want to buy a home that they have to make repairs and upgrades on. If such a buyer does submit an offer on your property, you can bet that they will subtract out how much they think it … (4 comments)

home staging: Home Staging Is Only For High-End Homes. NOT! - 01/20/12 06:09 AM
Home Staging is only for high-end homes. NOT.  We've been seeing and hearing that for years. Just look at all the model home communities. Theses gorgeous properties are staged to the max. Buyers tour them, sometimes drooling and sometimes finding love-at-first-site. Admit it, haven't many of us spent our weekends driving around to the grand openings, delighted and excited by the life-style decorating feast we're about to partake in?
But the times, they are a changin'. Home Staging is here to stay and it's growing in popularity. That is in large part due to all of the HGTV like programming, decorating … (6 comments)

home staging: STUDIO CITY HOME GETS AN UPDATE BEFORE GOING ON MARKET - 10/27/11 09:08 AM
In preparation for sale, this wonderful Studio City home got an update before going on the market. Pro Staged Homes was called in by the agent and homeowners to make recommendations on how best to prepare the home.
Our first suggestion was to do everything possible to let light in, lots of light. We suggested replacing the old dark green carpeting and removing all of the wallpaper throughout the home.
 
            
 
Next we suggested washing all of the windows and woodwork and then polish the wood with orange oil to bring back the luster and … (10 comments)

home staging: THE POWER OF HOME STAGING: A POWERFUL HOME SELLING STRATEGY - 05/04/11 11:50 AM
I attended a local real estate meeting recently and several of the agents that were there mentioned that they are not getting any showings on their listings. They showed a few pictures of the properties and I knew immediately why. Their homeowners are not using one of the most powerful selling strategies available.
Statistics indicate that anywhere from 80%-90% of home buyers search the internet for the homes they want to preview. There are numerous sites that potential buyers can visit where they can see pictures of homes for sale. So the first important strategy is to make sure there are … (10 comments)

home staging: THE POWER OF HOME STAGING PART II: VACANT ON MARKET 149 DAYS. STAGED TO SOLD IN 25 DAYS - 04/20/11 08:46 AM
It's selling season and the power of home staging is hard at work here at Pro Staged Homes. This West Covina property sat on the market for 149 days without a bite. 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The sellers had called us in to stage their newest project in Diamond Bar and that property sold in less than 30 days. The sellers believe that the staging was the main reason the home sold so quickly. They still had this West Covina property which had been sitting vacant and unsold for 149 days. They decided that … (11 comments)

home staging: THE POWER of HOME STAGING: STAGED - SOLD - ESCROW CLOSED 39 DAYS FOR $10,000 OVER ASKING PRICE - 04/02/11 05:45 AM
The power of home staging at work again. This gorgeous Diamond Bar CA home sold in just 39 days and it sold for $10,000 above the asking price. It made believers in staging of the investor team sellers. So much so, since the home sold before the staging lease expired, we moved the furniture over to another property the team is selling.
When potential buyers walk into a vacant property this is what they are greeted by. Is room this memorable? Can you imagine living here? Is it creating an emotional attachment, drawing you in, begging you to buy it? Of … (4 comments)
