Newly staged in Murrieta, CA

Home Stager with Showhomes

Kathy Steimle who works in Showhomes Riverside emailed me this photo of a $1.5 million dollar home in Murrieta, CA they staged this week with a live in Home Manager:

Before - this home has been on the market for almost a year and little to no traffic. Murrieta, like much of southern CA, is a foreclosure capital with tons of vacant bank-owned homes clogging up the market. Here is Kathy's after shot of the same room (taken from the other side):


Wow - what a transformation. Showhomes has been selling homes in Southern CA and hopefully, this one will move quickly!

What do you think?

Thanks, Chrissie - she did a great job and I really like the photo, too. That's a really depressed market and a home needs all the help it can get to sell these days. Leaving it vacant is the kiss of death!

What a wonderful transformation -- a staged home is always so warm and inviting compared to a vacant!

Looks like a great home, and a great staging job. It should sell quickly now! Thanks for sharing!

This iroom has definitely experienced a huge transformation.  The house has obviously been waiting for furniture and it should sell very quickly now.  :-)

This is stunning and looks like what should be in a 1.5 mil dollar home.
