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.

Check out this 1 bedroom condo we staged.  It’s the first floor of a 2 condo gut rehab project in the Whitman section of South Philadelphia.  Great open layout, and a perfect investment opportunity for a buyer looking to live in one unit, and rent the other.25126927251269232512692227_6820473_19_1467308143_636x4352512693325126931

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: RECENT FAVES Edition

30 Mar

I’m not gonna lie- I just couldn’t think of a great underlying theme for this weeks post.  So, friends, I’m just gonna give it to ya’ straight- Here’s a little collection of some of my favorite stagings our team has put together in the past couple of weeks!

SOUTH PHILLY:  8XX Pierce St in East Passyunk

STAGED & SOLD in 1 Weekend!!

27_6686574_1_1457750423_636x435

I love this one because I thought the staging really brought out the beauty in the character of the house.  The walls are painted in slightly darker colors than most South Philly rehabs that we see, and the stained natural wood accents are unusual as well.  The hardwood floors are beautiful, but also bring a lot of personality to the space.

So, we really wanted to do a staging that honored the classic elements of the home, but made it feel very contemporary at the same time.  We also chose to stick with solid blocks of neutral colors in the furnishings and area rugs, and I think that really helped to soften and blend the natural wood tones  into the space.

27_6686574_4_1457750424_636x43527_6686574_5_1457750424_636x43527_6686574_7_1457750424_636x435

NORTHWEST PHILLY:  78xx Provident Rd in West Oaklane

Just for a little perspective, the first shot is the vacant space before the staging…  Look at the difference!

27_6730666_2_1457748800_636x43527_6730666_5_1457748801_636x435

Maybe it’s just that chair, but when we were finished with this staging, I kinda wanted to stay and relax in this house!  I love how the lighting is really bright, yet soft at the same time.  It felt very cozy and comfortable- which is exactly the feeling we were trying to create.

WISSAHICKON:  44xx Mitchell St in Roxborough

27_6745895_2_1457579374_636x435

When I walked into this vacant property, it had a bit of a “surfer bungalo” vibe.  It’s not a bungalo at all, but I think I was feeling the wood-paneled island, the vintage/industrial style pendants, and the amazing sliding barn door (below)…  And it felt a little artsy- which I LOVE!

27_6745895_13_1457579376_636x435

It’s the Wissahickon- it’s down to earth, nature-loving, casual (but still classy)- and, its my ‘hood- so there’s a lot of pride in this one!  We really wanted to create living areas that felt hip, comfortable, and multi-functional.  (I’d want to live in this house!)

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!

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!

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.

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!

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!
