Staging Sells a $1.65 Million Jacksonvillle Mansion in One Day

Home Stager with Showhomes

Jim and Kaye Biby, owners of Showhomes Jacksonville, emailed me these photos of a $1.65 Million dollar Ponte Vedra mansion that they staged with live-in home stagers. The home, which had been on the market for an extended period of time before staging, received two offers within one day of staging and closed in a staggering 3 weeks!

There is a reason 96% of Realtors say fully staged homes such as this one sell faster and for a lot more money!

Take a look:

WOW.....those must be some happy sellers!!  The place looked sooooo much better with the "live in" staging.  Not something I have seen much in No. Calif....but I can see a place for it!!

They are indeed - our live in home stagers didn't get to live in this home for very long but we did secure a new home to stage next door and they happily moved right in. All in all, a great problem to have in today's market!

Absolutely stunning home! I love the millwork and ceilings-the staging just enhanced them even more.

WOW! What a beautiful transformation... it's no wonder it sold the first day!  A great pop of red in the Dining Room with the fabric chairs and place settings!

I love the dining chairs! The staging makes such a difference. It was so cold and lifeless before.

Thomas- thank you for sharing!  The home certainly looked a lot more inviting with the classy, well-placed furnishings.  Very nice!
