Nowadays, most people will want to look at a house online before deciding whether it is worth looking at in person, this means that any photographs posted of your home need to look really good. So, what can you do to make your house appeal to online viewers?
Is it possible that, over the years, you have accumulated a lot of possessions? While you may value these items, too many of them can make a house appear small and cluttered, which will look unappealing online. So, choose a minimalist approach when staging your home. Leave just a few furniture items that help enhance the best features of each room.
Many home buyers these days are looking for light, open spaces. Lots of natural light is very important, so look for ways to add more of it into your home. Perhaps you have some heavy window treatments that you could remove to maximize the light. Or, maybe there is foliage outside that could be trimmed to allow more light into the home. You may also want to apply a fresh coat of white paint throughout, which can work well to brighten a space.
Take professional photos. A great photo will make all the difference. So if you want your property to stand out online, professional photos are a must. It will be worth the money you spend to have them done.
