Worthwhile Updates When Selling a Home

By
Home Stager with Stage to Sell - LA Home Staging

I recently Staged a gorgeous home in Los Feliz, California. It was very large, had a beautiful outdoor covered terrace with amazing city views, and  a view of the Griffith Observatory from the Living Room window. When I arrived to preview the home, the Realtor told me the home had initially been listed at $2 million. With the square footage and views I mentioned, that wouldn’t seem completely outrageous. However the moment I stepped in the door I knew this home was not a $2 million dollar property. Why?

Annie, I see that a lot in my market too--the price reflects what it could be, not what it is.  Nice updates.  The seller will be glad they took your expert advice!

Holly, that's a good way of putting it! The price has to reflect the current condition of the home, especially in this market. A couple of years ago the location was all that mattered. Now condition plays a huge factor as well.

Great job Annie.  I had a consultation Monday with paneling like that and also recommended that it be painted.  The sellers said No Way!  I am so glad yours listened - I might just send them this post so they can see what a difference it would make.  Kudos on the quick sale Annie!
