Staged Pasadena home sells in 5 days!
I called the Listing Agent of a Pasadena cottage we staged 2 weeks ago, just to check in and lend support where needed. The listing agent told me that they got an offer after 5 days on the market and the house was now in escrow! The listing agent paid for the staging and we only staged the living room, dining room and kitchen to keep costs down. It is rare for the LA to pay for the staging, at least among the agents I work with, but this listing agent and her investor client have an ongoing relationship with multiple buys and sales between them. The house was a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house that is owned by an investor who fixes and flips 'em and was listed for $840,000.00.
This was such a small, quickie job for us, I didn't even take before and after photos. I guess I'll have to do that when we destage.
The moral of the story? Real Estate staging by Moving Mountains Design helps sell homes quickly, even in this depressed market.
