Investor Home Staging – California Craftsman in Pasadena

I’m often asked how our Investor home staging differs from our “regular” home staging. The answer: it doesn’t. We still use the same high quality furniture, rugs, artwork and home staging accessories that we use for “regular” home staging. We are just as dedicated to helping our Investor home staging clients sell their homes as quickly as possible and for the most amount of money, as we are for our homeowner and real estate agent clients.

Here are some photos of a recent Investor home staging project – California Craftsman in Pasadena, CA.

This home has 3 bedrooms and 1.75 bathrooms in 1,836 sq. ft. It is located in North Pasadena on a quiet street lined with other charming Craftsman homes. The investor managed update without losing the original Craftsman charm. The gleaming hardwood floors flow from room to room making the space feel larger, lighter and brighter.

We often work on home staging projects for Investors. Many of our Investor clients use Moving Mountains Design for multiple staging projects per year. Some we work with on multiple projects per month. For more information about our Investor home staging services, please contact Michelle at (626)385-8852.

Contemporary Home Staging – Manhattan Beach

Contemporary Home Staging in Manhattan Beach

I’ve been a little remiss in posting recent jobs because we’ve been so busy. We’re destaging this Manhattan Beach home we staged for one of our real estate investors … because it’s sold!

Contemporary living room home stagingThis house had an amazing 2 story living room with a balcony. Which of course, I had to take advantage of for the home staging photos we supply with most home staging projects.

Last week the Moving Mountains Design team was hired for a Valencia luxury home staging project by one of our favorite real estate investors. We love home staging projects throughout Los Angeles County and this one was no exception. Despite being built in 2005, this custom 5 bedroom, 6 bath home in Westridge Estates feels brand new with all the upgrades and updating our client did before we staged.
