Highlights from a Home Stager: SEVERAL FOR SALE IN SOUTH PHILLY- Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia

3 Jun

The Point Breeze section of South Philly has always been an active area for us because there is constantly so much rehabbing and new construction going on.

Sales are rapid here because it is so close to Center City, yet slightly more affordable at this point in time.   Homes in this area are generally tailored toward the young professional/young family buying market.  They work downtown, enjoy the city lifestyle, and desire all the luxury amenities that a builder can pack into a home.  In Point Breeze, you’ll see lots of open floor plans, soaker tubs, quartz counter tops with built-in seating, restaurant-grade kitchen appliances, and city view roof decks.

In terms of staging, we aim to make these homes appealing and relatable to the young prospective buyer.  We also make it a point to differential each one in terms of colors and furnishings, so that each one is memorable and identifiable.

I kinda feel like it’s all about the living room, because it’s the first thing you see when you walk in, and the last thing that you see when you leave.

Highlights from a Home Stager: SOUTH PHILLY Edition- Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia

22 Feb

Bella Vista, East Passyunk, Pennsport, Point Breeze- They kinda each have their own personality and their own identity- Is it even OK, at this point, to generalize them all into the category of South Philly?  Please forgive us- no offense intended.

Here’s a look at some of our recent projects South of Washington Ave:

11xx S. 6th St in Dickinson Narrows- Large South Philly Gut Rehab Home Staging

This property had been listed on the market vacant for quite a while.  We were called in to breath some new life into the space- We call this “A Refresh”- and we hope it will spark new interest among potential buyers.  Often, vacant listings get overlooked by potential buyers, simply because (maybe even subconsciously) the thumbnail photos used to attract attention online are not that interesting.  And, often, without any furnishings, vacant home photos are very confusing because they offer no sense of scale or point of reference for viewers to understand layout.

The Case of the South Philly Home that Needed Staging, by Sunflower Creations

29 Nov

kimball1It’s a classic tale:  Once upon a time, a super sweet young family lists their home for sale in the Bella Vista section of South Philadelphia.  Even though the home is in a great neighborhood, and is really adorable, it sadly sits on the market for 40 days with little interest from potential buyers.  Their realtor suggests consulting with us, and we are able to identify a couple of issues right away…

We were ready to work with the homeowners on a consulting basis, to help improve the success of their showings.  But, at the last minute, they decided to move out and have us stage the home completely.  This was a really good move!

The general theme that seemed to keep reappearing is that there is a big difference in the way we live in our homes, versus the way we envision living in our homes.  For example, when we stage an empty living room, we tend to use accessories that suggest relaxing with a cocktail, or getting cozy with a book– something that seems happy, fun, enjoyable to potential buyers.  This is appealing, it is what we want to do in our living room.  Forget that most of us will turn a living room into a playroom, office, craft room and dining area!

(Living Room Before and After)

kimball3Common in many older South Philly homes is this big landing that seems like a whole additional room.  The trouble with this space is that it is tough to figure out what to do with it.  It’s a common area because you need to walk through it to go downstairs, but it is definitely bigger than a hallway.  Our solution is to turn these types of areas into something special or functional, somewhere that a potential buyer would want to spend time.  In other words, we want to turn the space from a question mark  into a memorable selling feature of the house.

IMG_2068

(landing before and after)kimball8 kimball7Finally, the house was listed as a 2 bedroom home, yet upon walking the property,  we could only find one bedroom!

IMG_2061

The long story is that since the couple have a small child, who frequently wakes up in the middle of the night,  it became easier to just sleep in one room on the second floor with the built-in crib.  The short story is that potential buyers were not envisioning the fabulous 3rd floor loft space as a master suite, since it looked more like a storage/makeshift office.

IMG_2075

IMG_2073

IMG_2079

The open space is even equipped with plumbing, for a bathroom renovation, or at least a wet bar– Who wouldn’t want that in their master suite!

kimball11 kimball12 kimball13

This home definitely had an artsy vibe, from the multi-colored linoleum tiles on the 2nd floor, to the pegboard walls in the kitchen and master bedroom.  It is these unique traits that people will fall in love with, and it is these same traits that people will run from.  So, we just made it a point to try to neutralize these oddities a little as we worked our way through the home.

kimball2 kimball4 kimball6So, now for the happily ever after:

Once staged, this home went under contract in 1 WEEK!!

Rehabbed Home in South Philly’s Up-and-Coming Pennsport- Staging by Sunflower Creations

8 Nov

moore2We did this staging over the summer (we’ve been super busy, and are JUST starting to catch up on our blogs, etc).  The house is a beautiful renovated row home on Moore St. in Pennsport.  Looking back at the photos, I really love the bold color punches!  It looks very neat and clean.

Moore1 moore3

We started out with a black, white, and turquise “less-is-more” design on the first floor, and it seems to have carried on up the stairs, as well.

Our client chose to have us stage the two smaller bedrooms, because rooms really do feel larger with the right furniture in them.

So, we did a twin set up for  a child’s room, and a full set up, which would be ideal for a teenager:

South Philly Condo- Home Staging by Sunflower Creations

16 May

catherine6Loved the colors we used in this light-filled bi-level condo.

It was a great space, and the aquas, turquoises and oranges gave the main living space a real island oasis feeling!

catherine8 catherine2

Upstairs, we did two bedrooms and bathroom.

I love how the photographer really made the accent colors in the bedrooms POP!!

That was exactly what we were going for in this staging!

Passyunk Square Living: Sunflower Creations Home Staging in South Philly

12 Feb

IMG_6211

Passyunk Square is a neighborhood in South Philadelphia bounded by Broad Street to the west, 6th Street to the east, Tasker Street to the south and Washington Avenue to the north.   It is a great neighborhood that offers tons of wonderful places to walk, shop, eat and unwind.  It is a great home choice if you like walking, fresh and delicious food and a strong sense of community.  Some notable spots are The 9th St Italian Market, East Passyunk Business District, Pat’s Steaks and Theatre Exile.

We recently staged this lovely rehabbed home in Passyunk Square, and we thought we would share our pics!

franklin2

We really wanted to show off the beautiful finishes in this property- Hardwood floors, ceramic tile, granite counters.  So, we went with a muted color palate, and punched it up with texture, greenery, and art. IMG_6208

The open living room/dining room layout is great for entertaining and for relaxing.
