San Gabriel Home Staging Sells Home In 1 Day!

We staged this San Gabriel home and it sold in 1 day!

This San Gabriel home had been on the market since December, and in June 2011, Moving Mountains Designwas hired to stage it. It had been on the market for 6 months and had not sold. The home was beautifully remodeled and updated, had a pool and was in a great San Gabriel neighborhood. Still, it hadn't sold until it was staged. The buyers had seen the home multiple times before it was staged, but didn't see fit to make an offer until they saw how much more beautiful the home was with staging furniture and accessories. The buyers realized they were about to have a whole lot more competition. They were compelled to make an offer because the perceived value of the home had increased after staging.

Michelle - WOW what a wonderful job staging this home!  It shows like a model - I'm sure that helped get those buyers off the fence!  I bet the sellers wish they had called you, oh, 6 months ago....!  ;)

Thanks, Sharon. The sellers have already put me on hold to stage their other properties as they are finished.

No is that ever an incentive to have a home staged.  Congratulations, Michelle.  It does indeed look stunning.  You should provide the before pictures :)

Thank you, Jane. I'll do that!

Hi Michelle.

Wow, you do such beautiful work! Congrats to you and your seller on a job well done.

Hi Michelle--first, congratulations.  The home looks gorgeous.  Amazing what great staging will do for a home.

Michelle....it looks stunning!!!  Shows off what GREAT staging looks like!

Lynda: Thank you! Maybe we'll get to work together some day :o)

Thanks, Janet. Yes, staging really is a secret weapon for home sellers.

Hi Kathy: You squeaked by me and I almost missed your comment! Thank you!

Michelle - This is a perfect example of the power of home staging.  Six months sitting on the market, then staged and sold in one day!  Having a home staged is really a "no brainer", and you are one of the best home stagers out there.  Congratulations!

Thank you, Sally!

Perfect example of how most people just don't have the "vision" to mentally furnish a vacant house.  Good thing these buyers came back! 

Posted by Julia Maher, Connecticut Home Stager (Nestings: Connecticut Home Staging and Model Homes) over 7 years ago

Julia: The house looked fantastic after we were done staging. I have no doubt the house would have gone under contract with someone before the week was out. I guess the "on the fence" buyers realized that as well. Timing is everything!

Posted by Michelle Minch, Home Staging Los Angeles and Pasadena, CA (Moving Mountains Design Home Staging, Pasadena, CA) over 7 years ago

Michelle, beautiful work as always!  I also heard from Hitomi's buyer.  Their home has sold after you staged it and they kindly thanked me for the referral.  Good job!

Posted by Irina Netchaev, Pasadena CA Real Estate (Pasadena Views Real Estate Team, Inc.) over 7 years ago

Thanks, Irina. Yes, Wilbert & Brenda are referring me to 2 of their friends who are putting homes on the market this month.

Another stunning staging. You're such a PRO! I, too, would love to see the before pictures.

OK, OK, I'll post the before pics!

Thanks, Kathy!

Posted by Michelle Minch, Home Staging Los Angeles and Pasadena, CA (Moving Mountains Design Home Staging, Pasadena, CA) over 7 years ago

Picture perfect as always!!! I love how you made it look like a model home-congratulations!!

Thanks, Miss Cathy Lee!

Just beautiful!  Congrats!  I'm sure homeowners and agent are thrilled! :-)

Posted by Teresa Meyer, Home Staging Cincinnati-OH. (Cincinnati Home Stager) over 7 years ago

Thanks, Teresa. Homeowner assures me I will be hired to stage their other properties (settling a family estate). They're being rehabbed now.

Great testimony as to how Staging makes the sale happen FAST! It's beautiful...what's not to love (& buy)?
