Home Staging Riverside County, CA


Identity Theft! Oh No! Don't let this happen to you!

Who stole the room!  Is it a Living Room.....Office.......Closet?????  Don't let this happen to your Occupied Home Seller!

This poor room has lost it's identity and doesn't know what it's purpose in life is anymore!! 

If this room doesn't know what it is, how is a potential buyer suppose to know what it is?

A quick call to a Professional Stager can fix this problem and help this room find it's value and purpose in life!







 Ahhhhhh.......a Dining Room!  Who knew????

 Now we can pull up a chair, sit down and relax. 

Thank you Professional Home Stager! :)


Hey!  Where's dinner???







This Occupied Murrieta home was staged by 1st Stage Property Transformations a Murrieta Temecula Home Staging Company.

That looks great! The screen in the original photo gives the impression the room was too embarrassed to let itself been seen. There is no reason for the room to be embarrassed now.

Hi Janice,

Stagers really are amazing people.  How rewarding it must be to take something plain or even quite unattractive and make it into something very appealing!

Love this post!  My favorite use of the dining room is the one with the pool table instead of a DR table.  The buyers will wonder where they are supposed to eat.

Janice ~ Great title - you really caught my attention!  The room looks great.  That screen really did nothing except make that area feel very enclosed.  You've opened it up again and given it back its identity!  Nice job!

Janice, The room looks wonderful - did you have to buy all the new furniture because ti is not the same as the original furniture.  For many people cost is a factor, Karen

What a difference staging makes. Great job and keep sending the before and after pictures. I like to see your work and how it effects the sale of a home.

Janice, as always, you've done a beautiful job. Don't you just love to give rooms a purpose and a reason! And great title. I thought, Oh, she needs to know about PrePaid Legal! Glad it wasn't YOUR dentity stolen!

Rosario- Thanks!  You got it right...the screen was hiding stuff.  I will find the pic's and add them to my post.

Terry - Thank you very much.  Always looking to help a room find itself!

Leslie - Thank you.  I love what I do.  It is so rewarding and a win-win for all! 

Chelle - Thanks! Yup nothing like eating near the "eight ball in the corner pocket!"  Ugh. :)

Kathy - Ha!  I am glad my "trickery" got you to stop by and comment.  Sometimes I surprise myself! Thanks for your kind words. :)

Karen - Thank you!  The dining room set is in my inventory (I have a great furniture distributor)  and has been used many times over the last year. I have to tell you it is one heavy $#*& $(*&($!  I call it the DINOSAUR!  I would love to sell it soon!  The buffet is actually a bedroom dresser that was blocking french doors so we turned it into a buffet!

Jackie- Glad yoy liked it!  Dinner is my favorite meal.  Let's do dinner in Boston one of my fav cities!

Mike - Thanks for visiting and commenting.  Yes, B&A's are great.  Visual images are KEY in this industry.

Carole- Aww thanks!  I always love it when you stop by.  I will update my pic's and show you why the screen was there. 

Fernando - Thanks! I couldn't believe how big the room was when we removed everything in it.  I ended up bringing in a larger scale dining room set.  Who knew!

Roberta - Thank you for the compliment. I do love it when I can help a room out.  That is one of the best parts about my job...helping.  Glad you liked my title.  And I am glad I don't need any legal advice...whew!

Janice - Oh, you have no idea how pleased I would be to take you to dinner in Boston!  Dinner is pretty much the only meal I eat all day and so it's definitely my favorite meal - I want it fun and full of good food.  Let me know when you're coming and it's a date!

Great work!  The room looks twice as large now.
Posted by Kristina Leone (Lionheart Home Staging, LLC) about 10 years ago

Jackie - I have no plans in the near future but I hope to get back to CT (where my sister lives) in the spring!  I will love to meet with you over a cup of New England calm chowda'!  :)

Kristina - Thank you.  The room does look huge now and as we know....square footage helps SELL!

Hi Janice,

Your title caught my attention. 

You did a great job.  It looks more inviting.

Jo - I agree.  We need to show potential buyers what they are buying.  Thanks for commenting.

Mary Lou - Thank you.

Catherine - Gotcha! ;)  Thank you.

I have never used staging but am ready to try, you need every extra dollar on every sale thse days.  How much of an increase can be expected.
Posted by Jeffrey Dolfinger, NRBA Member (24/7 Realty Inc.) about 10 years ago

Jeffrey - Glad to hear you are ready try Staging.  I am sure you can find many talented stager's on AR that are in your area.

How much of an increase.....it really depends on the property...location...price...etc.  Advertising Staged Homes will help increase traffic since potential buyers and REA's are looking online before visiting properties.   A fast sale is PRICELESS!  Good luck and happy holidays!
