San Gabriel Home Staging Sells Home In 1 Day!

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

We staged this San Gabriel home and it sold in 1 day!

This San Gabriel home had been on the market since December, and in June 2011, Moving Mountains Designwas hired to stage it. It had been on the market for 6 months and had not sold. The home was beautifully remodeled and updated, had a pool and was in a great San Gabriel neighborhood. Still, it hadn't sold until it was staged. The buyers had seen the home multiple times before it was staged, but didn't see fit to make an offer until they saw how much more beautiful the home was with staging furniture and accessories. The buyers realized they were about to have a whole lot more competition. They were compelled to make an offer because the perceived value of the home had increased after staging.

Michelle - This is a perfect example of the power of home staging.  Six months sitting on the market, then staged and sold in one day!  Having a home staged is really a "no brainer", and you are one of the best home stagers out there.  Congratulations!

Perfect example of how most people just don't have the "vision" to mentally furnish a vacant house.  Good thing these buyers came back!

Julia: The house looked fantastic after we were done staging. I have no doubt the house would have gone under contract with someone before the week was out. I guess the "on the fence" buyers realized that as well. Timing is everything!

Michelle, beautiful work as always!  I also heard from Hitomi's buyer.  Their home has sold after you staged it and they kindly thanked me for the referral.  Good job!

Thanks, Teresa. Homeowner assures me I will be hired to stage their other properties (settling a family estate). They're being rehabbed now.
