House for Sale?: Try using Flowers!

     Strategically placing flowers around your house might just up the chances of winning some ones heart with your home for sale. “If you spend $200 on flowers, in the grand scheme of things, compared to the amount of money that you’re selling your apartment for, it’s totally worth it,” said Lisa Lippman, a senior vice president at Brown Harris Stevens in Manhattan. “Flowers just make a place look lived in, in a good way. It makes it seem like somebody cares about the home.” Flowers can also ensure that buyer’s senses aren’t offended. “They give a fresh smell,” Ms. Lippman said. “It can potentially cover up an animal smell, stale smell, mothballs or whatever.”
“Flowers can make an apartment more appealing because they bring a space to life,” she said. “People can relate to how they would feel in the home, because it’s warm and intimate.” Just don’t go overboard with foliage or intense colors. All the flowers for an open house should stay simple & should enhance the surroundings, not steal the show. White flowers are more suggested than colored petals because it won’t take away from the colors your home expresses on its own.
Using seasonal flowers will set off the mood in any room & you will get the most for your money, in example using hyacinths & peonies for spring. If your looking for fragrance go with lilies, but for open houses held over consecutive weekends, she suggested orchids, because “they’re a little more long-lasting.”
As for how much you should spend, it is advised that the cost of the flowers should reflect your home’s asking price. That means your budget could range from $200 to $1,000, depending on whether you’re trying to sell an entry-level apartment or a more luxurious home. The payoff for the extra bit of effort is positively clear.

Flower Festival in Spain

Temps de Flors Festival, Girona, Spain

Spring paints Catalonia’s sunshine-laced Costa Brava region in vibrant colors: Bright umbrellas shading café patios in seaside Calella de Palafrugell, turquoise waves lapping white pebble beaches in Cap de Creus Natural Park, and flowers cascading down cathedral steps during Girona’s annual Temps de Flors festival, May 12-20.

Wander the old city’s labyrinth network of steep, cobbled lanes where unexpected urban gardens and bloom-inspired art installations adorn monuments, stone-walled courtyards, and city squares. Beyond the festival, hike along Girona’s ancient Roman walls, explore Europe’s best preserved Jewish quarter, and indulge in the experiential cuisine of El Celler de Can Roca, named the second best restaurant in the world in 2011 by Restaurant magazine.

From Girona, hop an early train to Figueres, where native son Salvador Dalí conceived or designed every aspect—from the giant white rooftop eggs to the geodesic dome—of the Dalí Theater-Museum. The surrealist masterpiece (inside and out) houses the world’s single largest and most diverse Dalí collection, as well as the artist’s crypt.
