Highlights From A Home Stager: West Philly is Poppin’

22 Aug

What’s going on above 50th St, people? The answer is: A whole lot of home renovating…

Over the years, we’ve done a good amount of staging in University City, Cedar Park, and Kinsessing.  But as our city is flourishing, rehabbers and developers are pushing the limits and creating beautiful neighborhoods beyond the traditional boundaries.

Here’s a look at 4 West Philadelphia properties staged in July.  Three out of 4 are Staged & Sold in Less than 30 Days!

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: December ’15, Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia

In our eyes, every home is unique.  There is no cookie-cutter.  And every project deserves thorough consideration.

 

Good to Great!  Before and Afters from our Norristown Staging Project- Staged and Sold in 2 Weeks!!

This 3-bedroom home in Norristown had been on the market for about 35 days, and was just not getting much love.  The home boasts a very open, spacious first floor and master bedroom, beautifully updated kitchen, and finished basement.  But our staging walkthru also revealed a few areas of deficiency:

(1) Several rooms did not have any overhead light, and the rooms that did have overhead fixtures still felt dim, due to low watt bulbs and dark paint colors.

(2) Entering the vacant space was a bit lack-luster, perhaps because of the actual amount of empty space!  It just felt cold, and empty:(

(3) With little but walls and floor to focus on, the flaws were accentuated.  My eyes went, first, to the baseboard heaters and cables.  These may not exactly classify as “flaws”, but they are definitely visually cumbersome, and not very attractive.  The next thing my eye went to was the areas of the walls that required paint touch-ups.

**Please Understand:  As stagers, we are not trying to hide property issues.  Our objective is to present the property in its most positive light, so that prospective buyers will fall in love with the home.  **

Without further ado, here’s our before and afters:

blog30 blog31We were really happy because the final product felt very cheerful, comfortable, and inviting!  And, we’re also really happy because just 2 weeks after staging, this home is under contract!!

1xx Chestnut St

…Loved the way this Old City loft turned out-

Many buyers are perfectly willing to give up square footage for a great location.   But, in a compact unit like this, it’s imperative to show functionality.  Here’s 720 sq ft that offers plenty of living space, and a full size dining table that easily becomes a nice big work space!

I love that the staging makes the property look swanky and cozy at the same time!

Highlights from a Home Stager: October 2015, Part 2- Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia, PA

Old homes, new homes- We do it all, and we gotcha covered…

blog1Washington Square West- *Sold in 10 Days*

This first property was built in 1916 (for those of us who don’t like math, that’s 99 years ago).  In our experience, many people want old homes, in theory.  Nothing says charm like original hard wood floors, brick fire places, and antique fixtures.  But, older homes tend to show poorly because they often lack the clean lines that look great in photos, and they usually have little in the way of overhead lighting.  What’s more, when empty, potential buyers have nothing to focus their attention on except the flaws that come with age.

True Story:

This Center City town home sat vacant on the MLS for 200 days…

We staged it on day 201, and and by day 211, the property was pending sale…

Fairmount/Art Museum Area Gut Rehab

Now, this fancy pad is brand-new-everything in a 100 year old shell.  The building has been standing for a century, but for all intensive purposes, its a new home.  Much like most of Philly’s modern construction homes, you’ll see raised ceilings with lots of overhead light, open floor plans, fresh hardwood floors…  And, this home also has extra-special luxury features hiding around every corner.

The key to staging homes like these is really to soften them up.  Since everything is new inside, the home is pretty pristine- so much so, that it can feel sterile on it’s own.  The addition of textiles makes an incredible difference in the potential buyer’s emotional response when he/she enters the home.
