Update: Staging was the Magic Bullet! This house had been on the market for 217 days before we staged it. It sold a few days ago. 58 days on the market after staging (that includes a 30 day escrow).
We had the opportunity to stage a beautiful Mediterranean style home in Arcadia, CA, this week. The home has been on the market for more than 7 months with no offers, which is unusual in this area, even in this market. The Listing Agent is very energetic, enthusiastic and on top of her game. Apparently, the homeowner was a little ambivalent about selling the house, or at least doing what needed to be done to get the house sold, and there were some accessibility issues for showings.
This week the home owner agreed to have the house staged, and the Listing Agent is excited that he has made this commitment to the selling process. I don't normally do occupieds, but I couldn't resist this one. Most of the rooms were devoid of furniture, and we did use a little bit of the home owner's furniture where appropriate. We purchased all new bedding and towels for the home owner to use and move to his new home. Hopefully, staging this home will be the magic bullet that helps it sell. Here are the end results:
The home owner is so happy about how the staging turned out that he has asked me to help him furnish his new home once this one is sold.
