The best way to sell anything for the highest price is to generate a lot of interest among qualified buyers. The more you motivate potential buyers, the more likely you can maximize your asking price.
Unless you are very famous or someone who is once lived in your home, the local market will dictate the general amount that you can get for your home. But you can present it in the best possible light and create greater demand. Professional photography is an ideal tool for doing that.
Can Professional Photography Help Increase My Home Value When Selling?
An experienced real estate photographer can help you make your home look its best and prepare to sell it for the highest possible asking price. You should be able to schedule a meeting at your home so the photographer can see the architectural highlights. The photographer can determine which features are most popular among buyers and help show them in your promotional photos in real estate listings.
The photographer should help you determine the best possible way to photograph your home and advise you on how to prepare your home to be photographed. The photographer can use the best lighting throughout the morning, noon and night to make your home look its very best in promotional photos.
How Can I Increase the Price of My Home Before Selling It?
Famed crooner Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters in 1945 popularly sang a song that urges you to “accentuate the positive” and “eliminate the negative” to “latch on to the affirmative.” That is exactly what you need to do to increase the selling price of your home.
A professional photographer can help you accentuate the positive with presentation photos that literally place your home in the best light. And you can make some simple home improvements.
Simple Maintenance Can Eliminate the Negative
You can eliminate the negative by keeping a tidy home and touching up the interior and exterior with some fresh paint. Planting a flower bed and doing some minor landscaping followed by thorough lawn maintenance are just a few ways you can latch on to the affirmative with an increased selling price.
Quality kitchens and bathrooms are especially valued by most buyers. Some new appliances that are energy efficient and look great could boost your home’s value by a significant margin. A damaged tile floor should be fixed. And laying some new carpet could make a home look brand new.
The better your home looks inside and out, the more you can ask for it. Some advanced preparations and a nominal investment in upgrades can make a huge difference in the selling price. And some great photos by a professional real estate photographer could help to drive interest among motivated buyers.
