3 YEARS on the market?!?! SOLD in 2 WEEKS!

March 29, 2010

On the market for 3 YEARS!

This home is located in a VERY exclusive gated community ~ so exclusive that most people in the Los Angeles area have never even heard of it unless they have been invited behind the gates by a resident.  Most homes in this community range between $4M – $15M, ultra tight gate security and fantastic schools. So one would think that any buyer would jump on a home listed UNDER $2M?! Right?! 

The golden rule of Real Estate: buy the least expensive house in the best neighborhood

However in this case, this house went for 3 YEARS on the market, over $700,000 in price reductions and  these desperate sellers wanted to move on with their lives.  The problem was, that the highly desirable “open floor plan” was SO open that most buyers didn’t know what to do with the wide open spaces.  The contemporary concrete floors were cold and didn’t match the ranch style home.  Bedrooms were just as sparse and Buyers could not make sense of the gold or dark green paint colors on the walls.

Home Staging to perfection

Within just a few days, My Company developed a game plan, secured the Staging and transformed this 3,500 square foot home in just 1 DAY!  Needless to say, we were thrilled to get the call less than 2 weeks later that the home was under a quick & clean, 30 day escrow!  Although, the Seller did admit to me just last night that he was having Sellers remorse


 Here are a few more before and after pictures of this Home Staging.
