Put a 'Face' on that propery description.

By
Home Stager with Janice Ankrett Home Staging

The first place your home will likely be seen is on the Internet.

Those MLS photos will be available to Realtors and the public. They help them decide if your house is one of the ones they will visit.

These photos put a 'Face' on the property description of room sizes, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, special features etc.

To draw the Buyers to your home those picture need to show an appealing home.

 

  Don't show the buyer a blank face.

                                                                                                     Show the buyer a room that they can relate to.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   Don't show the buyer a tired face.                                                Show the buyer a fresh face.

Get advice from a Professional and make sure you are putting the best 'Face' you can on your home. Make sure those pictures are selling the features of your home, not scaring buyers away.

Put a smile on the buyer's face. Make the list of homes they will visit.

Prepare your home before those MLS photos are taken.

It is amazing how little effort put into preparing the house for market.  It is just like merchandising a store, or used cars!  Merchants clean and prepare their product to be presented in it's best light possible, why aren't all houses treated the same?  After all, the houses usually cost a lot more!

Very true Catherine! Your home is usually your biggest asset so why wouldn't you do whatever it takes to get that equity out?!

I have seen photos where cupboard doors are open and junk is everywhere.  Why bother taking a picture.

Janice:  Excellent post.  You can read room sizes in the description but it is difficult to understand to how that equates to a room with furniture.  Also, were those cabinets really purple?  Yikes!

Thanks Valerie. They were sort of a cross between deep purple and burgundy ;).
