How to prep your sales property for photos

When listing your house or condo unit for sale, especially in a buyer’s market as is the rule in Chiang Mai, of course you’ll want to get a competitive edge in order to lock in a speedy turnaround and top dollar.

At the same time, after checking the price is right, would-be buyers will be after catching a first glimpse of the place. Now, whether your ad appears in an estate agent’s window or –odds-on in this digital age- through the internet, science tells us that you’ll have but a matter of seconds to score that all-important first impression.

MAX OUT THE SQUARE METREAGE

Especially in living and dining areas, create an extra sense of roominess by:

DRESS FOR THE OCCASION

 Termed ‘home staging’, throw in a few finishing touches like:

OOZE KERB APPEAL

 

If it’s a house you’re selling, you’ll need to tend to more than just the interior spaces; particularly at the front of the property, the idea is to create an inviting outdoor oasis for lounging or entertaining so:

LOSE THE SCALY, FEATHERED & FURRY FRIENDS

Sure they look adorable, but seeing your pets in the property pictures will often scare off potential buyers so:

LET THERE BE LIGHT

 
 
Simply put, there is no photography without light and the more illuminated your property, the better so:
