Home Staging Trends

A big portion of a realtor’s job description is previewing property. We do this so we can keep up to date on real estate trends, pricing, home staging trends, and current inventory. Although I have several buyers’ agents, I often have a handful of buyers I am working with.

Last Friday, I had the pleasure of previewing the Bob Hope Estate in Toluca Lake.

I’m not quite certain what a buyer in the $27.5m price range will think, but I thought the home was amazing, very comfortable, private, and unpretentious. The guard’s gate house offers a suite of offices and a meeting room with fireplace. The home’s primary dressing area and bathroom are amazing. Additional features include a guesthouse, gardens, a three-par golf course, and an indoor and outdoor pool.

A couple of home staging trends I noticed:

Q-tips and cotton balls in glass dispensers with an orchid and white towel in all bathrooms.

Interestingly all of the books were covered in brown paper (my home stager said this was done to keep things neutral).
