Highlights From a Home Stager: Giving Props to Point Breeze Props

25 Sep

You know your from Philly if you live in a Point Breeze row home (it’s not a townhouse), and you know you live in a Point Breeze row home if you recognize this layout!

We work all over the city and surrounding ‘burbs, but year after year, Point Breeze is where it’s at for stagers.  Developers are just constantly rehabbing homes and often, entire blocks go under construction at once.  As neighborhoods improve, we find ourselves going further and further south.

Here’s a quick hit of 4 Point Breeze rehabs we’ve staged in the last month or so.  The layout is generally pretty straightforward- but there is a wide variety of play in finish selections.  Style is normally contemporary to modern industrial- aimed at the young professional, often first time-home buyer.

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.

…The big one with the Huge Sectional and Southwestern Pattern Rug…

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.

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.

7XX S. Front St- Queen Village Home Staging

blog9

Although we are Contemporary Home Stagers, we playfully worked in a few more traditional looking pieces to compliment this slightly more traditional Philly home.  We know that “contemporary” is the look that helps homes sell- but, we also take ques from the property, itself.

We chose a fun periwinkle blue painted console/desk (above) and that big tufted armchair (below), mixed with metal accent tables, a sleek leather sectional, and contemporary patterned rug… blog11blog10…Nail-head adorned dining chairs with a very linear-edged glass-top dining table…blog12…And bunches of pillows mixed in with these industrial night stands…

22XX Reed St- South Philly Home Staging in Point Breezeblog18In this rehabbed home staging, we went rustic-meets-contemporary.  We brought in lots of greenery, pictures that feature elements from nature, and a nice big farm table in the dining room.  You’ll notice the dining chairs, counter stools, and bedroom accent chair are constructed from wicker, yet styled in an updated way.  And we threw in a muted city-scape, just to see if anyone would notice! blog19blog20blog21blog22blog23

20XX Tulip St- Sun-Drenched Fishtown Gut Rehab Home Staging

blog13The light in this home is amazing!  With the bright white walls, and the blonde wood floors, we wanted to go with furnishings that created strong sillohetes, and then add in small pops of color.  Mid-century modern-inspired pieces work really well for this, and in funky, quirky Fishtown- why not!

Highlights From a Home Stager, Sunflower Creations, September 2015

2 Sep
blog23

Believe it or not, this Brewery town condo loft is just 820 square feet!

In compact living spaces, it is SO important to show functionality.

Who will be the buyer?  What will he/she need in a home?  What do we need to show that will help them relate to the space?

With this nice big sectional sofa, we were able to maximize seating and comfort potential in the living room, and still leave room to spare for a proper 4-top dining table.

And, we thought it was important to designate a “work-space” area in the bedroom, to prove our point that this unit offers room for everything!

We wanted to the overall look to be fun and relaxed, yet sophisticated at the same time- I think our team nailed it!

Old City Condo–*Under Contract in less than 1 week!

This unit has great light, which makes it feel huge. And although it is a flat, the cavernous layout            provides a lot of privacy and space. With an elevator that opens directly into the living room, and roof deck  to boot, no wonder this one flew off the market. Oh yeah, and the staging- demonstrates layout, and provides texture/warmth!

Delaware County Single Home Staging

blog1

We love getting out to the suburbs, and we seem to be doing it more and more these days. In the beginning, home staging was definitely more of a “city thing”. But, now, people know what staging is, and how it truly helps sellers get more attention to their listings. This leads to more offers, and to better offers. This is a charming updated Cape Cod house in Clifton Heights. Sweet!

A Cinderella Story… Sunflower Creations Highlights from a Home Stager, August 2015

18 Aug

blog18

This lovely South Philly rehab in Point Breeze sold fast!  It was listed a few weeks ago, with little buyer interest, and just 6 days after staging, it is officially pending sale!!  It’s a fab house- Just needed a little magic in the way of color, texture, and contemporary elegance!

Here’s some before and afters, that show how staging with Sunflower Creations transforms a property into a home:

21st b1

BEFORE- Vacant dining area feels bland and boring…

blog19

AFTER- Textures, shapes and colors make this photo interesting and click-worthy!

21st b4

BEFORE- Again, lots of white space, and it’s difficult to gauge room size in the picture…

blog20

AFTER- Space is defined into different areas, furniture provides a better estimation of room size, and colorful art/curtains break the monotony!

21st b5

BEFORE

blog21

AFTER

21st b7

Old City Condo Staging

And here’s another Old City condo that explains the difference between “furnished” and “staged”

blogfrontbefore

Our client had some furniture in the unit, that was in good condition, and appropriate for the trendy lofty space. But it was falling flat. It also offered no designated dining area, which is important- even in a 1 bedroom unit.

AFTER- And here you have it- Edgy, yet warm and inviting. And room for all of the elements of living!

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

Point Breeze Home Staging by Sunflower Creations

23 Jan

15th1(Click photo to see full property listing)

This fully-renovated, 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath town home in the Point Breeze section of South Philadelphia offers all the modern bells and whistles that a home buyer would want.  It boasts hardwood floors throughout, open floor plan, modern kitchen with breakfast bar seating area, and finished basement.  To be honest, most of the renovated and new construction homes that we work on offer these features because this is what buyers want.  Our challenge is to make the property stand out from the competition.

15th3 15th4

We use bursts of color in our designs to create visual interest in MLS photos.  These photos are VERY important, because buyers are at home searching properties on the web, possibly before they even call a realtor.  Thumbnail photos of empty rooms are NOT interesting and have a much better chance of being overlooked than photos with enticing shapes and color.

15th5 15th6 15th7Once the potential buyer has made it to the property, staging helps explain furniture layout and how to separate open floor plans into separate functional areas.  Most buyers want open concept design because it feels modern, it is great for keeping an eye on children and it works well for entertaining.  Yet, most people will tell you that a large empty room is confusing.

15th9 15th8 15th10

Finally, staging helps a property to be memorable.  One of our clients brought up this point, and it really stuck with me…  “There is a lot of competition out there when it comes to selling modern construction in Philadelphia”.  Obviously, developers want to deliver what the market wants.  But that means that there are a whole lot of houses that seem very similar in terms of style and features.  Sometimes, just being able to identify a property as “the one with the tan swirly rug”, or “the one with the blue floral bed pillows”  will help solidify its place in the minds of potential buyers.

15th11

 Thanks so much for looking!

…Whether ultra-modern new construction, a charming rehab, or a traditional redesign–We understand the subtle differences.

Our “look” helps homes sell quickly and our process keeps clients coming back time and again.
