Homes are more appealing when buyers can imagine themselves inhabiting the space. And a house or condo with furniture, art, and personal touches looks much more like a place the buyers can see themselves living in. If you have great furniture and a flare for interior design, this can really work in your favor. Your home is already staged and ready to go! However, if you’re still rocking some 20-year-old, hand-me-down furniture, if you have an eccentric aesthetic taste, or if you’ve already moved out, leaving the home vacant, you might be faced with a bit of a dilemma. Empty homes can look sterile and uninviting, but it’s a common challenge for realtors. To provide my sellers with the best marketing plan possible, I often hire an outside company to digitally “stage” listing photos to give buyers a better idea of what could go in a space, rather than allowing them to focus on what’s not there.
It’s a huge difference, right? When selling your home, it’s my job to increase make sure that it’s presented to as many buyers as possible. And since most buyers are looking for homes online, great, professional photos are the best way to entice them. Many agents like to channel Ansel Adams with their iPhones, but I always hire a pro photographer with the gear, skills, and computer programs to make sure that your home shows up as well-lit, spacious, and clean in all the marketing photos.
Let me help you sell your home by making sure that your home makes a great first impression.
