It may seem harder than ever before to sell your home, thanks in part to the fact that open houses are a thing of the past for the foreseeable future. The truth is that you do not have to give up – you only need to pivot. Keep reading to learn how to make your home look great on mobile browsers and then contact Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices at (310) 373-0021 for more tips for sellers.
Staging is More Important Than Ever Before
Staging your home has never been more important than it is when a potential buyer will not even be stepping foot into your home until they have already carefully considered every room and every angle online. Get rid of clutter. Put away toys, whether they belong to the kids, the pets, or you. Get rid of magazines, pictures, and mementos.
Does this mean that you want to remove all personality from your home? No, but you do want it to be neutral enough that a buyer can easily picture themselves and their belongings in your home. As an added bonus, the less you have in a room, the larger the room will look.
Make Changes to the Layout of Your Furniture
You may be in love with the way the rooms are arranged, but if the furniture you have does not make the space seem as large as it is when it is viewed on a screen, then you may need to change the layout. Take a few test pictures with your current layout and see how it looks. If you have a video tour of your home, do a practice one with a friend. Can you walk through your home seamlessly without tripping over furniture or walking around awkward corners? If not, then you may need to change the layout of the furniture.
Light Your Home Well
You want your home to be as bright and cheery as possible. One important aspect of this is to take photos as the brightest part of the day. However, you should also make sure that every lamp and light fixture has a working light bulb in it so that if additional lighting is needed, you are ready to go. No matter how beautiful your home is, if it is not lit well it will not look great.
These are the best tips we have. While normally we recommend a real estate photographer, it can be challenging for some people to feel comfortable with anyone in their home right now. When you call Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices at (310) 373-0021, we can discuss alternatives that will work for your needs.
