los angeles home stager: Home Staging Photography - 08/06/08 04:27 PM
The right lens, even more that the camera, can make a big difference in how your photos look.
This post was inspired by a post made by Kathy Nielsen, Georgia Interior Solutions a few days ago Home Staging Up Close and Personal. Her photos are always exceptional, in part due to her fabulous camera equipment (but mostly because she is such a talented stager).
I use a Nikon D40 with a 18-55 mm lens that came as part of a package. I have been really happy with the quality of home staging portfolio photos I am able to take with … (30 comments)

los angeles home stager: Home Staging in Encino CA - What $4.5 Million Looks Like - 08/02/08 05:31 PM
$4.5 million home staged in Encino CA by Moving Mountains Design Home Staging.
This week Moving Mountains Design Home Staging had the absolute pleasure of staging a luxury estate in Encino, CA. This new construction Mediterranean home located "South of the Boulevard" (code word for "the right side of the tracks") was built with the finest quality hand hewed black walnut hardwood floors, granite, marble and imported tile. I love working with this builder because they spare no expense in building their homes and they are beautiful. Here is a link to a Sherman Oaks home we staged for this builder, … (37 comments)

los angeles home stager: Home Staging in Sherman Oaks Gets the Job Done - 07/25/08 04:03 PM
Home staging in Sherman Oaks by Moving Mountains Design Home Staging brings in the offers.
We recently had the opportunity to stage a beautiful Mediterranean style new construction home in Sherman Oaks, CA. The home had been on the market unstaged for several months, with no offers. Across the street was another new construction home in a similar style, also for sale, at almost the exact same price, with similar square footage, lot size, etc. The home staged by Moving Mountains Design sold - the other home (staged by another company) is still for sale.

los angeles home stager: Los Angeles Home Stager Interview in Chicago Tribune - 07/25/08 02:23 AM
I was recently interviewed by nationally syndicated real estate journalist Ellen James Martin for a column she was writing about home staging. Google Alerts let me know this morning that the article is appearing in the Chicago Tribune.
The article, Getting the Most Out of Home Staging, will appear in about 100 newspapers across the country over the next few weeks. Please feel free to show some stager love by leaving a comment at the Chicago Tribune web site (just below the article).
Just for the record, I am not the "Director of the Real Estate Staging Association" as quoted in … (36 comments)

los angeles home stager: Home Sellers, Are You Getting a Lot of "Lookers" But No "Takers"? It Might Be Time For A Staging Makeover! - 06/21/08 04:03 PM
Are you getting a lot of "lookers" but no "takers"? A lot of showings but no offers (or mostly low ball offers)? Your home probably needs the help of a Professional Home Stager.
Preparing a home for sale is a lot like getting ready for a first date. When preparing for a date you may ask yourself "Do I look good?", "Do I smell good?" "Will he/she like me?" "Could this lead to a long term relationship?"
It is the same with putting a home on the market. Ask yourself:
Have I done everything I can possibly do to get a potential … (32 comments)

los angeles home stager: Los Angeles Home Staging Company Forms Strategic Alliance with North Star Moving - 06/08/08 12:05 PM
Los Angeles home staging company, Moving Mountains Design & Home Staging has formed a strategic alliance with Chatsworth, CA based moving and storage company North Star Moving.
I first found out about Ram Katalan and North Star Moving from an article in Fortune Small Business Magazine titled Moving On Up. When I read the article, I realized this guy Ram was one smart cookie. After realizing that the imploding real estate market in Los Angeles County would probably effect his bottom line with his middle income clients, he set his sites on the high-end market, which tends to be more stable … (21 comments)

los angeles home stager: Successful Los Angeles Home Staging - 05/28/08 02:18 PM
Granada Hills home staged and sold!
Moving Mountains Design is having great success this year helping Los Angeles Real Estate Agents and home owners sell their homes faster, even in this tight real estate market. We staged this occupied home in late April. The Real Estate Agent emailed me this morning to let me know the home had sold, and in record time for this area. It is easy to see why this home sold so quickly. The staging makes it stand out from all the competing homes on the market in this Granada Hills tract. Staging by Moving Mountains Design … (15 comments)

los angeles home stager: Home Staging in Granada Hills, California - 05/10/08 09:20 AM
Home staging helps sell homes in Granada Hills
Moving Mountains Design was recently hired to stage a home in Granada Hills, CA. The home is a great family home with generously sized rooms, a huge back yard and a newer kitchen. As the home is located in a large tract with several homes for sale, the homeowner decided to have the home staged in order to increase the chances of a faster sale. The homeowner completed a number of suggested updates (new chandelier in the dining room, new lighting in the bathrooms, etc.) and had the house painted with our suggested … (20 comments)
