Home Staging Riverside County, CA


$50 Staging Consultation...PRICELESS!!

About one month ago I received a call from a homeowner that was getting ready to prepare their home for sale and wanted to find out more about my services.  She had a limited budget and wanted to get the most for the least amount of money.  Don't we all!  Since this was an occupied home I suggested that all she might need is a 1 hour verbal staging consultation which cost only $50.00. 

Two days later I met with the homeowner's Cindy & R.J. and their 4 home schooled boys.  The home is a manufactured home located on 2/3 acre property in rural Murrieta.  The owner's and I went room by room discussing what needed to be accomplished to create a large, warm and inviting home that would attract potential buyers. 

One week later I received an email from Cindy -


We are so appreciative of your time and expertise.  We actually tackled every room this last weekend and boy what a difference!!!  I would love to have you come by and see what we have done only because we are so impressed with the changes that you suggested.  We had family over on Monday and they couldn't believe the transformation either.  The clutter is gone and we found some real bargains on trees and decor.   The pantry and master closet will need a couple of "starbucks nights" after our boys are asleep and maybe a few things here and there but now our home feels much better.   If you ever need a referral or testimonial be sure to contact us as we may be your biggest fans yet.  We don't know if the house will sell or not in this market but at least we can put our best foot forward within our budget.

Thanks again and if you want, give us a call so you can come take a quick look at the results.

Here are some of the results I saw upon my staging consultation follow up -

The first picture below on the left was the first room you viewed when you entered through the front door.  We transformed the rooms back to their intended purpose. The living room was put back where it belonged!  As was the dining room below.  Basically one BIG flip flop! 

Here is the master bedroom, yes I suggested to store the exercise equipment in the garage.  But the garage was already full and believe it or not they use the exercise equipment!  :)

And what would my post be without a bathroom transformation.......

I was so pleased with the homeowner's work I was shaking as I was taking these pictures.  They completed most of the suggestions I recommended and their hard work paid off. 

Bottom line....Can they do it....Yes they can!
