Monrovia Home Staging Can Help You Sell Your Home For More Money

Even in a hot market, professional home staging can help you sell your Monrovia home for more money, less time on the market and with multiple offers! Monrovia home staging works!

In my last blog post, I talked about staging a house that got 29 offers and sold for $140,000 over the list price. While selling for that much over the list price (17%) and with that many offers is not always attainable, many of the houses we stage are still going $50,000-$60,000+ over asking. We staged this California Bungalow for Nicola Sperata in Monrovia. Great marketing by Nicola and on-point staging by Moving Mountains Design garnered this seller $62,000 over the list price.

Home Staging Can Help You Sell For More Money In A Hot Market

Home staging can help you sell for more money, even in a hot market? Absolutely!

Even though the real estate market in Los Angeles, Pasadena and Arcadia is super hot, and homes are selling faster than ever, professional home staging can help you sell for more money. Case in point: We staged a Craftsman Cottage in N. Pasadena. It was listed for $829,000. It sold for $969,000, and increase of $140,000 over list. They got 29 (TWENTY NINE!!) offers. They accepted an offer 12 days after listing. This was not business as usual for this neighborhood. It’s rare for a house to get 29 offers and go 17% over asking. While they had a great agent and marketing wizard in Colette Dornblum, home staging played a big part in the success of this sale.

Temple City Home Staging | Luxury Home Staging

Our latest Temple City home staging project

This week, for our latest Temple City home staging project, we got to stage this beautiful, new construction home. Yes, you are not seeing things. The walls of the dining room are black. And they are stunning. And yes, one of the walls in the family room is charcoal gray. This takes “paint your walls a neutral color when selling” to a whole new level! This stunning Temple City home has 5 bedrooms, all en suite¬† (3 up/2 down) and 6 bathrooms. The entry is spectacular with a carved marble waterfall wall at the end of the entry hall with gleaming white and black marble floors. No detail was too small with no expense¬† spared, from the grand crystal chandeliers, wet bar, chef’s kitchen, marble and hardwood floors and grand winding staircase.

Rancho Mirage Home Staging For A Real Estate Investor

Rancho Mirage Home Staging

While we typically work on Los Angeles home staging projects, we took on this Rancho Mirage Home Staging project for one of our real estate investor clients. We’ve done 3 so far with another one coming up in 2 weeks. Located in the prestigious guard-gated Spring Country Club, this golf course view home has style to spare. 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (en suite) in 2,900+ sq.ft. I love working with this particular client because he has great taste (he hired Moving Mountains Design, right?) and always supplies us with great finishes to work with – quartz countertops, marble backsplash, stainless appliances and interesting hardwood floors.

Our approach in staging this Rancho Mirage home was accentuate a desert lifestyle, while using cooling colors in artwork and accessories. Our color palette of teal blue, white and gray seem to do the trick. We also wanted a casual but elegant vibe.
