Staging Success Story in Sacramento

Home Stager with Valesca Bogard


Why should I Stage a property ? Can't buyers see the potential of my house?  We welcome these questions when working with new customers. Validating the efficacy of professionally staging a listing, we have oodles of proven sales. One recent project...

This property had been listed for 3 months, with no offers, little activity.

Pulled the listing, cleaned it up, staged it, and....SOLD, within 24 hours !

Nice job! I'm sure the staging helped showcase the unique qualities of this particular listing.

Valesca -- it can't get much better than a sale in one day -- congrats! Those are results that your clients love, I'm sure -- especially after 3 months on the market before staging :-)

I was just wondering, since you both stage directly for your clients and your company also rents furniture to local stagers, can that cause any conflict with your stager clients if you happen to bid on the same projects?  How do you handle that in a way that works for both ends of your business?  This likely occurs in other markets across the country as well so it's a good topic for discussion.

Thanks Ladies ! Yes, this repeat client was delighted :)

Maureen, as it relates to your question on the two-fold business and potential conflict of interest: It would be stickier if we didn't have the approach that we don't compete directly with our clients. We have "declined to bid" on many occasions. (Not the easiest thing to do, however, serves the greater good.)

Open communication has prevented many issues. On a case by case basis, we've worked together to come to a resolve, serving the staging client's needs. In the past 5 years of business, we've had very few complications. There is enough business for all of us in this market. Continuing to promote professional staging as a whole is part of our role. Thanks for the questions!

The house looks wonderful!  It appears as though you were able to define certain areas that could otherwise be awkward - such as a dining area in the entry?

Julie, you are so right.There was no formal dining room called out.....takes that questionmark away ! While it may not be our first choice of an entry, it worked in this case.

Barb Thank you for the kind words !

Hi Valesca--just gorgeous staging.  Small wonder it sold in 24 hours.  Love that dining room rug--it really makes that space.
