Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia’s Home Stagers- Early March 2015

17 Mar

Well, we trudged through the snow, we battled the ice, and we staged lots of homes in the city and the suburbs…

Here’s what we’ve got for you today!

Even with snow on the ground, the huge windows make you feel like your in Florida- and we love that, right about now!
The home owners decided to do some updates, and put this baby on that market.  And they called us to stage it, because a staged home sells better than an empty one!

When we first came out to see this home, the walls were just filled with fun, bright colors.  We suggested repainting some of the bolder areas in neutrals for resale, because potential buyers tend to prefer a blank slate.  But we brought some color right back in with furniture and accessories.blog17 blog18 blog19 blog20 blog21(Click here to see full property listing)

Sunflower Creations Home Staging Highlights, January 2015

3 Feb

blog2It’s been an active January, with a record number of stagings and 8 new properties under contract!  And, it looks like there will be little down-time heading into Spring because Philly is bursting at the seams with new construction and newly-renovated homes that need staging!

Sorry to be repetitive– but if you are new to our blog, or to the idea of home staging, we’ve gotta quickly tell you why staging helps homes sell quicker, and for more money, than non-staged homes.

  • Get more people in the door.  Attract more potential buyers with more click-able MLS photos.  Pictures of empty rooms are bland, colorless, shapeless and boring, and fewer people will want to look at them.  Staged property photos provide spacial reference, shapes and color.  More people click, which leads to more showings, which leads to more interested parties, which leads to greater demand for the property, which leads to higher sale price.
  • You have some explaining to do.  Most potential buyers can not visualize the space with furniture in it.  This is hard to believe for developers, who make a living on being able to visualize the finished product.  But, it’s true- Many people will not know where to put the sofa, where to put the TV, can they fit a full bed in the middle bedroom, etc.  Staging helps define overwhelming spaces in large homes, and show maximum functionality in small homes.
  • Turn “potential buyers” into “buyers”.  Staging makes a house feel like a home.  We call it “the warm-and-fuzzies”, that emotional response that makes potential buyers want to move right in to your property- versus the other 15 properties they’ve already looked at.  Staging will show them an idealized version of their life in their new home.

Here’s a look at two upscale rehabs in Grad Hospital, plus some fun stuff in funky Fishtown, Pennsport, and Fairmount:

January Happenings- Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia’s Home Stagers

15 Jan

blog11(Suburban Home Staging Consultation in Bucks County)

Our first project this year was this sprawling family home in Bensalem’s Belmont Ridge Community.  The owners will be living in the home until it sells.   We were called in as consultants, to help prepare the home for listing.  We did a “room-by-room” with the sellers- advising them on what items to keep (furniture, art, accessories), what should go, furniture arrangement, etc.  We also supplemented items needed to create a taste neutral, depersonalized, eye-catching presentation for MLS photos and for showings.

The room featured above is the formal living room, which was essentially empty when we arrived.  The homeowners got rid of their dated furniture, and are waiting until they move to replace it.  So, we supplied this striking living room set-up, which is the first room you’ll see upon entering the home.  Click here to see more.

And, here’s a few more projects that we’ve been busy with:
