Before and After: From Cluttered and Chaotic to Staged to Sell

We recently transformed this beautiful Mediterranean style home in the prestigious Del Lago community of Long Beach. Taking this home from lived in to staged caused it to sell in just 16 days!  

Here at The Oriana Shea Group we are very big proponents of staging, and believe whole-heartedly that you only get one shot at a great first impression. This is a great example. This home is a perfect example of  how powerful properly staging a home can be, and the impact it can have on prospective buyers. This was a normal family home, with two adolescent boys.

During the initial staging consultation, Oriana walked through the home with the sellers and advised on inexpensive changes that would make a huge impact. A fresh coat of paint in the dining room, living room, & kitchen, as well as freshening up the kitchen cabinets. We also updated lighting, making sure there were no burnt out light bulbs, creating a brighter space. The homeowners also packed many of their personal belongings & mementos – this helped create a more neutral space so that buyers could envision themselves moving in. We also used many of The Oriana Shea Group’s staging supplies, we have over 300 SqFt of storage in our office filled with towels, plants, home accessories and more. We almost always make these staging supplies available to all of our sellers, helping them create a beautifully staged home that prospective home buyers can’t wait to see. It is all about generating excitement about the home!
