Staff Reporter / 2011-10-30 12:56:23
In the final part of our 4 part series of features about Home Staging, Shannon McCullough and Tina Coppen look at how simple tricks can increase the chances of selling your home, by making it more appealing to the buyer.
Use as much natural light as possible. Pull up all of the shutters to let in the light. Do not photograph rooms with the rolling shutters down. It makes the room look small and dark.
Photograph the entire room, not just a photo of a sofa or piece of furniture.
Do not photograph piles of clutter or dirty dishes in the kitchen sink. We see this all too many times.
Stand far back into the room when photographing to try and show the entire room. To get more distance you might try standing outside and photograph through an open window.
Take loads of photos; it cost nothing on a digital camera. You can then select the best pictures for your advertising. Check your photos before publishing them, and edit them as necessary to improve the look. It’s fairly simple to chop the bad bits off or change the lighting and colours using the image management tools which came with your camera software or, if you have MS Office, using MS Picture Manager. If you can´t do this yourself we can do it for you for a small fee. Believe me it can make a huge difference!
Home Staging is a simple, cheap and yet extremely effective way to attract prospective buyers. If done properly, buyers will appreciate the extra care and attention to detail. Staging will help your property to stand out from the crowd, increase viewings and thus your chances of selling. Simple!
