Home Staging Arcadia - A Cute Remodeled Arcadia Home Comes to Life

By
Real Estate Agent with Signature Real Estate Group S. 0182277

This newly remodeled Arcadia, CA home received some home staging expertise by Michelle Drewry, Owner and Principal Designer of Staging The Essentials.  Two questions remained in the buyers mind, will my furniture fit into these smaller rooms and how will we arrange the furnishings?  We set about answering those questions by showing the buyer through staging.  

When all was said and done, it was lots of work; but, we also had fun turning this vacant house into a buyer's dream home.  As experts in home staging, it helps to know the area and to be familiar with the buyer most likely to purchase a home in that area.  This is who you are staging for - the buyer.

Below we show the difference that home staging makes.  Now a buyer has a reason to come to see this home.

BEFORE and AFTER Photos Below.

Let's see how much activity the staging brings to this house, which has been on and off the market for nearly a year without a buyer.

Hi Michelle--it certainly would be difficult for most buyers to figure out what furniture would fit in those rooms.  Your staging has answered those questions beautifully.  Very nice work.

Textbook examples of how empty rooms can look too small, and how Staging demonstrates their true size.  Looks beautiful, Michelle! 

P.S.  That's probably the one example of when it's good to place the bed against the window - LOL!

Kathy - Thank you!  I agree, buyers do have a challenge for how to place furnishings when rooms are long.  We give them the idea for dividing the room and they can take it from there.

Julia - Thanks!  It really did help to see that furniture could fit into these smaller rooms.  The master had only one place for the bed, since the door opened up at one end and the bathroom door was at the other end.

Hi Anna - Thank you!  This was my way of getting into the Fall season.  Fall is a challenge for me, since I do not like losing an hour of daylight when we fall back to standard time, but I do love the changes in the colors of the trees during Fall.

Hi Shar - Orange is my favorite color, so the minute it turned Fall season I took the opportunity.  Yes, a stager does make a difference.  :-)
