Recent studies are proving that most prospective home buyers check out your house & decide whether or not it’s “the one” well before they step foot in it. With today’s technology overhaul, home buying is less like a blind date and far more like online dating.

To snag those online suitors, it is absolutely essential that your home’s “profile pictures” are nothing less than amazing. Some casual pictures of your home looking “lived in” is just not going to cut it in today’s market.

You must go that extra mile and get your home all dressed up to create photos that are much more attractive in order to earn that “first date”. Chances are with a series of show-stopping pictures, courting those prospective buyers will be a breeze! So, how do you stage your home just right?

We  offered a few helpful hints in staging & photographing your home here, and we briefly touched on bringing some life into your home with fresh flowers and plants in that post.
