Leaf the Winter Home Competition Behind

By Orlando Gonzales

Is the possibility of selling your home on the horizon?

Beautiful photos are a key marketing element that draw buyers to your home when they are searching online. Typically, the first snapshot seen by potential home buyers is the front view. Their response to this picture will determine if they click on your home to learn more and ultimately bring them through the front door for an in-person visit.

The landscape is a key component to exterior single-family home photos. Here in the DC Metro area, showing your house in the best light should include photos showcasing your home at its best.  A home with thick, green grass and a lush outdoor surrounding spark the interest of buyers more than a bleak gray day with barren trees.

As you consider the possibility of selling your home over the next six months, would you like to have an edge over your competition? As buyers scroll through their options, photos of homes with bright curb appeal will grab their attention. For sellers needing to market in the late Fall/Winter, we develop a strategy that includes seasonal exterior photographs shot by our professional real estate photographers in advance to use later at the time of sale.

A second great reason to get started sooner rather than later is to address any issues that may need to have work done by a licensed contractor or which would require an investment on your part. We start by bringing our home design specialist to advise you on how to prepare your home to look its best. The designer will make recommendations on what to add, subtract or enhance with your existing decor. Furthermore, our home design specialist will provide you with a few options should you need professional staging if you will be vacating the home prior to the sale.

Even if you’re not sure exactly what the details of your sale will be, contact us for a consultation as soon. We listen to the specific needs of each seller, and work with sellers over time to prepare the best strategy for their needs. Planning for a sale in advance gives you more options as a seller and a leads to a better outcome.

These are just a few of the ways Capital Estate Group sells homes for 2.3% more, 4.6 times faster than other agents. As one of the DC Metro’s top real estate teams, we are ready to provide you with support and service to help you get the best price and the best terms on the sale of your home.
