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:

What’s Going On in Point Breeze? A Whole Lot of Home Staging by Sunflower Creations!!

15 Feb

171

The section of South Philly know as Point Breeze is generally bound by 25th Street to the west, Washington Avenue to the north, Broad Street to the east, and Mifflin Street to the south.  Having suffered from abandonment and population decline throughout the mid 20th century, this neighborhood is very up and coming today thanks to revitalization efforts steered by a variety of Philadelphia redevelopment organizations and rehabbers, who are buying up dilapidated properties and turning them into lovely modern homes.

IMG_6163 This home is spacious and luxurious.

Beautiful custom cabinetry makes this kitchen unique.175

And wait till you see the upstairs!  The master suite is an open bedroom/bath with jacuzzi tub, separate shower stall, double sinks and bar area.

Interested in the Point Breeze lifestyle?  Check out a few of our favorite spots:

Marra’s Italian Restaurant  has been serving up authentic, homemade huge plates of tasty for more than 80 years!

South Philadelphia Tap Room is the sought-out neighborhood spot for local brews and unique imports.  Great food as well!

Flashpoint Theatre Company is always working on some witty and fresh stage production.  And, if you are a theater buff, continue your explorations along  Avenue of the Arts.

Bainbridge Home Staging in South Philly

16 Jul

Great New Home in South Philadelphia!

We staged the 1st floor Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen- and the 2nd floor Office/Den and Bedroom.

 This is the downstairs living room, which would likely be used as more of a formal sitting area for entertaining.

The upstairs den, complete with wet bar, is a more laid back area for relaxing.

The den has these wonderful built in bookshelves that give the modern space a really warm feeling.

The key to arranging bookshelves:  Think less is more!

Select a few pieces that you really want to highlight, and accent them.

Also, keep balance in mind;  Arrange, step back, rearrange.  It will come together!
