Staging your home!

Unstaged Living Area vs. Staged Living Area

Staging and how to get your home ready to show…

First impressions are important!  Spending time and energy on photos, can make a difference, and translate into the successful sale of your home.  A home is a product for sale, just like any other, and should be marketed as such.

Staging your home creates a favorable first impression and helps buyers to see themselves in your home.  It draws attention to your home’s incredible features.  It puts your home above the competition and helps justify your asking price.  

At Greentree Real Estate, we enlist the services of a "home stager" to help prepare your home for its sale.   We can help your home stand apart from others on the block, and that will allow the process of buying and selling a home to progress seamlessly. 

Unstaged Living Area vs. Staged Living Area 

Why listing photos matter?

Why Listing Photos Matter

Why Listing Photos Matter

Remember, a home is a “good” for sale, and just like any other product, it should be marketed in a flattering way. 

Years ago, a buyer’s first impression of a new home for sale was often what they saw when they drove by the house. How your home looked mattered because it was generally the first peek a potential buyer would have of a property.  In today’s real estate market, buyers are busier than ever.  The first impression buyers get of a home is from the photos, posted on the MLS (multiple listing service).  With limited time and countless listings to review, buyers will quickly move on if the photos don’t reflect well on the property.  Nice photos show that you really care about your property and investment.  A potential buyer wants to experience being in the home.  Often, after buyers have toured your home, they return to their computers/phones and look at the property again.  Having seen the home, they can put together the floor plan and know how the home flows.  High quality photos that show the home; will get a lot more attention, will keep buyers interested and may even encourage them to take another look.  Appealing properties with nice curb appeal are the ones people tend to lean towards.  When you put your home on the market, you are competing against many other homes.  Properties with attractive, well-lit photos invite potential buyers to come in and visit your home.  

At Greentree Real Estate, we enlist the service of local photographers to photograph your property, to get top quality photos inside and out!  And we don’t just stop at photos to entice potential buyers into walking through your door for showings. We offer virtual tours and drone footage to add a dramatic touch to your homes marketing.
