Staged home in Arcadia gets an offer after first open house!
UPDATE: The REA called me this morning and told me the house is in escrow! Whoo-hoo!
Last week, Moving Mountains Design was hired to stage a 7,000 sq. ft. new construction home in Arcadia, CA. One of my assistants was in the hospital (thankfully she is on the mend and will be back at work next week), one assistant was on vacation in Brazil, and one assistant had to fly up to Sacramento to take care of her mother who had a stroke. It was the perfect storm of staging assistants (or lack thereof). I contacted 3 local stagers and asked if they wanted to help out, never expecting all three to say yes. Besides my 3 new trainee assistants, I was fortunate to have 3 terrific, talented and experienced stagers on my team:
Diane Concialdi of DC Redesign
Lynette Lawson of Starlight Staging
Terri Lucas of Exclusive Home Staging
Needless to say we had a great time. I am only sorry that I didn't have more time to spend with them. Here is the fruit of our labor.
When I spoke to the listing agent, he told me they had received an offer very close to the $2.68 million asking price after the first open house. My fingers are crossed I will be receiving a call this week that the house is in escrow.
I want to extend my heartfelt thanks again to Diane, Lynette and Terri. You ladies rock!
