Your Home - Through Your Camera's Eye

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

If you're in the Washington DC area, you're probably at home enjoying a snow day as schools, government offices and some stores are closed. So, while the weather outside is frightful (some consider it delightful!), you may be perfecting your to-do list to sell your home this Spring. If that's the case, add this item to that to-do list: Take photos of ALL your rooms from the doorways.

Cell phones or handheld digitals are totally fine for this exercise. This gives you a REAL feel of what buyer prospects will see when they walk into each room. In your daily travels through your space, you may not notice shoes and magazines on stairway, burned out light bulbs or all that stuff underneath the bed - but buyers will. Upload those pix and take a "through the buyer's eye" tour of your own home. Seriously, you will be surprised and what the camera sees (as shown in this kitchen photo which was a "before Staging" pic).

In the world of home selling, remember: "the way you live in your home and the way we market and sell your house are 2 different things"!

Now, go and enjoy your snow day, like this 'lil guy! Photo courtesy of the Smithsonian National Zoo.
