Selling your Stephenville home in today’s market might be easier than you’d think. With so many interested buyers vying for a limited number of homes for sale on the market in Texas and across the nation, a seller’s market has emerged, leading many Stephenville home owners to choose from multiple offers.
However, you’ll still want to do everything you can to make your home stick out from all the rest. One important way to achieve this is through staging your home via photography.
Now more than ever, the majority of home buyers do their research online. They browse listings in the areas they want to live and decide which homes they want to follow up on based not only on the price and location, but also on how the house looks at first glance from the pictures posted.
Your real estate agent will help you through the staging process, providing guidance and helpful suggestions on how to make your home look attractive as possible to any buyer. But to get an idea, here are some tips to spruce up the look of your home to entice today’s ever-discerning consumer.
– Scrub, scrub, scrub. You’ll want to present the rooms of your home with high-resolution photography so all the blemishes and imperfections on your bathroom’s shower door will be magnified. Don’t waste your money on replacing the door, instead use some good old fashioned elbow grease and scrub it to a shiny finish.
– Consider the furniture. If you’re concerned about the furniture you currently have being a detriment to attracting hungry buyers then you might want to consider bringing in new furniture for the staging process. You can talk to your real estate agent about whether or not this is a viable option.
– Give your home the best chance to succeed. At the end of the day, you have to realize that the photos representing your home will be the first thing that many prospective buyers will see. Take a step back and analyze the photos you plan on using from a detached perspective and answer yourself honestly, “Would I want to buy the house shown in these photos?”
