Home Staging in Sherman Oaks Gets the Job Done

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

Home staging in Sherman Oaks by Moving Mountains Design Home Staging brings in the offers.

We recently had the opportunity to stage a beautiful Mediterranean style new construction home in Sherman Oaks, CA. The home had been on the market unstaged for several months, with no offers. Across the street was another new construction home in a similar style, also for sale, at almost the exact same price, with similar square footage, lot size, etc. The home staged by Moving Mountains Design sold - the other home (staged by another company) is still for sale.

Here is a link to the slide show web site of the home we staged: Sherman Oaks Home Staging by Moving Mountains Design Home Staging . (we did not stage all the bedrooms and bathrooms to keep the price down)

Here is a link to the home that is still unsold (as far as I know): Sherman Oaks Home NOT staged by Moving Mountains Design .

Michelle, that's a lovely home and beautifully staged.  The other house, though, is what I call "Scary Staging!"

Maureen: Because I don't know all the particulars (budget, homeowner interference, etc.) I want to think that the stager did the best they could with what they had to work with.  Sadly, I don't think the staging will help sell that house, whatever the reason.

Thank you Diane. That is very kind of you to say. I don't think it is so much magic as having done so many staging jobs now. It does get easier the more you do:)

I like the "tag" for the 'other' staging when you mouse over the link ;-)  You did a stellar job as always and the obvious differences in the level of professionalism between the 2 properties astounds me.  I almost have to wonder if the formal living room set belongsto the owners, and the dining set....well - not something for an almost $3M home... Unfortunate for the stager that you can tell that the owners instructed them not to hang anything on the walls as apparent by the leaning mirrors & artwork (or they aren't properly insured)....

"Why did the Stager cross the road?" Because the developer will see the difference between the 2 and hire you! =)

PS - LOVE your wall tapestry, I've been bulking up on these lately as well.

Michelle, I love the dark couches.  I had a round mirror like that but I removed it from over the fireplace.  I wasn't sure what I thought about it, but now that I see this, I might put it back.

Connie: Thank you Connie. As I said, I don't know who the other stager was or what they were given to work with so it is hard to say why they made the choices they did. But sometimes no staging is better than not so good or cheapy cheap staging.

The tapestry is an antique from France. My rug guys supplied it. Good quality tapestries are difficult to find and they are usually expensive even if they are repros. Thanks for commenting.

Michelle: I'm glad you like the dark couches. They are some of my favorites. I get rid of the ugly pillows they come with and use my own. I tried a painting over the FP, but the mirror looked so much better it was a no brainer.

Hi Michelle,

Your work really is beautiful.  No wonder you're so famous (at least in LA!).  You do a great job of promoting your work, too. 

Do I understand that you use a separate supplier for your rugs than you rent the furniture from?

Hi Beth: I have a strategic alliance with a group of Persian rug dealers. On higher end homes I need the real deal. Brook's rugs are too contemporary for some of my projects.

Tom: But do you like my work? Tee hee. LKP has spoken highly of you as well. We should all get together.

Karen: Aw shucks, now I'm blushing. I find that using a few larger pieces works better in these big houses, than a lot of smaller pieces. Thank you, Karen.
