Home staging Fairmount Philadelphia

15 Dec

Hi! *smiles shyly* I’m just getting back into the swing of things.  Two weeks ago I started working on a huge project, which as I write is still on going.  I’ll share more about that later, but the point being I’ve been super busy and I feel so removed from the internet world!  Finding time to blog and upload pictures is so hard when you’re out in the field.  But here I sit because I have a great property to share with you.

Friday I staged this cute 3br in the Fairmount area of Philadelphia.  Or as some lovingly refer to it as the Art Museum area.  What a great neighborhood!  It’s like a tight little community on that hill across from the Museum where Rocky lives.

I know I’ve said this before but when I walk into a property I immediately get a sense of where I’m going to put what.  It’s always so interesting to see how the homeowner actually had it setup.  In this case I was able to see before pictures.

The homeowners of this property are so sweet and family oriented.  Which is why I did not find it shocking that they had a sofa in the dining room instead of a table and a large dining table to accommodate other families for dinner where their living room should be.  What truly makes a house a home is the love and community you bring to it.  There aren’t rules to how you should live.

There are rules about how you show your property to buyers.  This is where I come in.  One of the most interesting features of this house is that the kitchen is in the front of the house.  Most of the buyer feedback was negative about walking into the kitchen from the front door.  However, I think it’s charming.  A kitchen is where families spend time cooking, chatting and just being together.  So what’s the big deal?

I can’t change the layout but I can change the feeling it evokes.  How does this space make you feel?  Want to check out this property, talk to Lauren at Prudential Fox & Roach she’ll help you out.

Off to the next project!
