Gettin' Real: A Real Estate Blog

Many people say they don't really feel like an adult until they buy their first home. It is a huge step. Rather than letting a landlord make all important repairs, you take on this responsibility yourself. You also get to build equity in the home over time, which can be a rather smart investment. At the same time, buying your first home can be a little intimidating. You may have questions about applying for a mortgage, setting a budget, and shopping efficiently. We hope to answer those questions with our helpful content. Your real estate agent is a good source of information, and so is this blog.

2 Options To Boost The Marketing For Your Home's Real Estate Listing

There are many tasks you need to do to prepare your home for sale and make sure it has the best chances for attracting a buyer as soon as possible. The longer your home is on the market, the more "stale" its listing becomes. However, there are some creative ways you can help your home stand out and attract a buyer's attention. Here are two methods you can implement with your home listing to market it more successfully.

Use Professional Photography

The photography of your home is one of the best ways you can showcase your home, especially as the internet is such a convenient and easy way to show the features inside and outside of your home to anyone virtually anywhere in the world. And because the more people who see your home's listing, the better your chances of finding a buyer, you should do all you can to make its online listing presence a memorable one. 

Hire a professional photographer to take a large selection of photographs of your home, inside and out. Each room should have several different shots from various angles, with some from a high elevation if your home has vaulted ceilings or a grand living space that connects visually to more than one floor. 

When it comes to taking photos at a different elevation than a regular person's view, you can look for a photographer who can take aerial photos of your home outside. Aerial drone photography will provide your home's listing with a unique view that not all home listings will have. This is a great option if your property is on a plot of land that you want to showcase in the listing or if you want to provide views of your gardens and outbuildings. Aerial drone photography will provide you with photos of your home from literally every angle and can also provide your listing with a professional drone video.

To learn more about drone photography, contact a real estate photographer near you.

Hire a Home Staging Professional

When your home listing information is professionally handled by your real estate agent with plans for a portfolio of awesome-looking photos and an aerial video, you don't want to leave the interior of your home as-is. Buyers need to be able to feel comfortable in your home and find it easy to imagine themselves relaxing on your backyard patio with a glass of iced tea, for example. But when your home is decorated to your personal style of palm trees and wicker and your walls are covered in photos of your family members, it makes this task difficult. 

Hire a home stager to set up your home with tasteful decor and rich-looking furniture to go with it. This can often require you to put your own possessions or a majority of them into storage as your home is prepared to showcase each room and all its interior square footage. You only have one chance to impress a buyer, and this is accomplished with the perfect interior elements.
