los angeles 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)

los angeles 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)

los angeles 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)

los angeles home staging: HOME STAGING TIPS FOR UPDATING KITCHENS AND BATHS WHEN SELLING A HOME - 06/08/12 05:27 AM
Lots of homes are listed for sale that are in need of some updating. I would not recommend a seller spend a lot of money on remodeling the kitchen and bathrooms. I do however, strongly recommend that sellers invest in some minor updates so that the property appears well-maintained and move-in ready. Move-in ready, one of the top "must haves" on buyer's lists of wants/needs.
So what do you do when you have a kitchen that is still in the 80's? Oak cabinets, tile countertops? There are things home owners can do to counter the dated look. With some elbow grease … (4 comments)

los angeles 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)

los angeles 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.

los angeles 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)

los angeles 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)

los angeles home staging: HOME STAGING: IT'S ALL IN A DAY'S WORK - 02/02/11 11:12 AM
An agent friend of mine shared this with me and it really struck a cord with me. The agent was representing a seller with the sale of their home and it was a short sale.
The agent held an open house and it was very successful. The end result was that the owner received multiple offers the first week it was listed. The lender rejected all the offers but that's another story. Frustrated over all the work that was done only to have it all be for nothing, the agent estimated that the listing ended up costing their office about $10,000. … (7 comments)

los angeles home staging: HOME STAGING COVINA: WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THIS SPACE - 11/29/10 09:35 AM
We finished up staging a 3BR 1.5BA Covina home last week for a new client and agent. The home is 1605 SQ FT and the living room and dining room take up the bulk of the space for the entire home. I advised and recommended that sellers stage these two room and the master bedroom. The main living areas are huge and the bedrooms are on the small side. Their two biggest challenges?
 
1) A large living room and dining room that will intimidate potential buyers because they will not have a lot of ideas as to how they will … (16 comments)

los angeles home staging: HOME STAGING Pasadena: 2BR 2BA Condo - 11/13/10 07:18 AM
This 2BR 2BA Pasadena condo has been on the market for quite some time. It is large (1330 SQ FT), spacious and has a lot of new updates like granite counters, laminate flooring, fresh paint and new appliances. But those updates weren't enough to generate a sale.


The unit was in need of a good cleaning, some lighting and more personality. The main living area is very large and often times, this can be intimidating to buyers. They don't know what to do with all that space and the lack of light can be depressing. Sellers have to show … (9 comments)

Start with a newly remodeled house. Next, hire a stager to bring in furniture, lighting, artwork and accessories and make the house a home. Then add a motivated pair of real estate agents to price it right and sell it and you wind up with one happy home buyer.

los angeles home staging: HOME STAGING: STAGING SELLS IT AGAIN. ESCROW OPENED 27 DAYS AFTER STAGING - 10/01/10 03:56 AM
I  just can't emphasize enough the imporatance of staging your home for sale. In this market staged homes are selling first. Why? Because they show far better and appear better cared for and maintained than unstaged homes.
Creating an emotional connection between the buyer and the home is critical. It's that connection that leads to the sale. And professional home stagers know how to make that happen. That's what we do, it's what you hire us for. Pro Staged Homes can do it for you.
 
This property went on the market mid August and after a few weeks with no … (8 comments)

los angeles home staging: Home Staging: DIY Home Staging in a Master Bedroom - 09/29/10 10:53 AM
 

I was looking at homes on a property search site and came across this photo for a $multi-million listing.  As a prospective buyer, what would be going through your mind as you looked at this photo. Would it make your short list? Highly doubtful.
When selling, your home (and your pictures) whether it's for $50,000 or $50,000,000 must be neat, clean and well presented. Each room should be furnished in its intended or original purpose. If your home has several bedrooms, you can present one as a home office, particularly if buyers expect one or need one in your … (11 comments)

This living room features fresh paint, crown moulding, bamboo flooring, a fireplace, decorative lighted nooks and a great view. But it still looks cold, dark and uninviting - even in broad daylight.
Living Room Before
The purpose of home staging is to highlight the home's features and focal points, making each one stand out and be noticed. Home staging helps the buyer to create an emotional connection to the home, allowing them to see themselves living there amidst their belongings.
After this living room was staged, it became warm, colorful and inviting. The staging highlighted all the great features the room … (16 comments)
