Austin Home Staging Photography

Austin Home Staging Photography is the process of preparing a house or condominium for sale. The goal of home staging photography is to make a home appealing to the largest number of potential buyers because the search for a house to buy begins online. Photography makes it easy to visualize so it sells more quickly and for more money.

A home stager’s clients include builders, homeowners, and Realtors. Home staging for a realtor means selling a house faster, making happy customers, getting referrals, receiving repeat business, and, of course, making more commissions.

If you are preparing to sell your house, besides finding a realtor, the major task is preparing the house for sale. Experts agree that home staging gets a house sold faster and gets a higher price.

Austin Home Staging Photography

  1. Before any home is put on the market, home staging photography is essential. People looking to buy your house may not want to live in it as you do, and they need the house to look like it would be one that would fit their lifestyle.
  2. An empty house may be a problem for an agent and seller. When potential homebuyers see an empty house, they are sometimes at a loss as to what they would do with it. So work with the agent to give potential buyers an idea of how the house looks furnished.

Recommendations for Home Staging in Austin:

  1. Emphasize Curb Appeal. The lawn should be mowed and edged, dead stuff removed, and plants trimmed. Siding and windows washed.
  2. Freshly paint the front door. This is the welcome mat to your home. Make sure the doorbell and porch light work.
  3. Declutter every room. You want potential; homebuyers to imagine their belongings, pictures, art, and books in “their” new home.” Get them to think it’s their house from the time they walk in the door.
  4. Make sure the house is clean. Nothing will turn off the buyer more than filth. If they feel unclean walking through your house, you’ve failed to make a sale.
  5. Clean out the closets, the medicine cabinet, and the tops of the dressers.
  6. Paint! Take down the pictures from the walls, spackle the nail holes, and paint. Stick to neutral colors.
  7. Decorate tables with flowers. If you have room for al fresco dining, set the table with napkins. Let them picture themselves dining outside, enjoying the conversation over candlelight.
  8. Make the rooms look bigger. Removing furniture makes the rooms look bigger.
  9. Add furniture to emphasize the purpose of the room
