San Marino Home Staging - Home Sells For $90K Over Asking!

By
Home Stager with Moving Mountains Design Home Staging, Pasadena, CA

We recently staged this exceptional San Marino home for sale. And guess what: it received multiple offers over asking price!

UPDATE: This home has sold and escrow has closed! The home sold with multiple offers and the owners received $90,000 over asking!

We staged the home using a mixture of the homeowners' furniture with additional rental furniture, Persian rugs, artwork and accessories. The homeowner initially hired Moving Mountains Design for a Comprehensive Home Staging Consultation and followed our step by step instructions. When we arrived to stage the home owner had completed all the recommended work and the home was in excellent condition. The response during open houses was overwhelmingly positive. But the best reaction to the home staging? The home owner has hired Moving Mountains Design to help design their new Monrovia home!

 

This information from the listing agent's site: This beautiful Traditional home in San Marino affords an opportunity for families looking to move into the #1 public school district in Southern California – San Marino Unified School District at a reasonable price. Given that the median home in San Marino closed escrow at $1,848,000 was in January 2011, 2926 Woodlawn Avenue priced at $574 per sq. ft. makes this a must see property. A marble and wood-paneled entry greets you as you enter the formal living room with gleaming wood floors, inset paneling, a marble surround fireplace and a large bay window. Dining room is accessed through the living room and leads to a gourmet kitchen with porcelain tiled floors, oak cabinets, stainless steel appliances and granite counter-tops. A lovely, wood paneled library with built-in shelving and a fireplace overlooks a family room with wall to wall windows and terra cotta tiles leading to an expansive, professionally landscaped back yard with a rose garden, Camellia and Azalea bushes, fruit trees and a magnificent, mature oak tree providing shade. Perfect for entertaining. Master bedroom with an updated bathroom featuring granite counters and a tub offers a spa-like setting. The other two bedrooms are serviced by a spacious bathroom with a glass shower enclosure and granite counters.

Thanks, Stephen! I'm really happy the home sold so quickly with such a huge over-asking sales price bump.

Michelle ~ Very nice over-asking price increase, which I'm sure is at least partially due to the excellent staging presentation. It's no surprise that the sellers have hired you to design their next home's interiors!

Maureen: The home owners hired an excellent real estate agent and the home was marketed well. But the over-asking price bump exceeded everyone's expectations. I think the staging transformation had a lot to do with the higher sale price as the buyer said he "fell in love with the house" and imagined it would be a great place to raise his family.

Michelle, I suggest. Excellent staging job and I am not surprised that the house sold 90k over asking. It confirms my believe that if you stage reasonably priced home it will bring multiple offers and it could end up selling higher than asking.

Michelle did a fantastic job staging this home.  I've seen the before and after and the difference was tremendous.  With the professional photos that she took, the website for this home just rocked!

Lynda, San Marino Unified School District is #1 in California based on API results testing.  You can see all API results on the CDE Website!

Bravo! It's encouraging to see this result. Can't imagine that it's a trend yet, but perhaps a good sign of a turn around to come.
