Virtual tours are the new standard when it comes to selling your house in Greenville NC. Fewer people are walking through properties and more are taking to the internet to get all of the information they need about a house they’re looking to buy. While our lives will eventually show some form of normality in the near future, some changes will be permanent, and the use of virtual tours is one of them! Let’s cover how you can set up your Greenville NC virtual tour so you don’t crack the screen!

Get Rid Of Extra “Stuff”

We all collect nicknacks and sentimental items over the years that tend to accumulate throughout our house.

Christmas presents you just can’t throw away, greeting cards from your family, and gifts from special occasions, all of these tend to find a place to sit…

and sit…

and sit in your living areas, garage, or attic.

Do you really need all of this?!

When you’re ready to sell your house in Greenville and you’re staging it so it looks it’s best, you’re going to need to get rid of a lot of your “stuff.”

You don’t necessarily have to throw it all away, but when you’re creating virtual tours in Greenville NC you need to take a minimalist approach.

Only have items that are essential for the decor and avoid any family photos.

Potential buyers who are walking through your house need to be able to see themselves living there, and that’s really hard when there’s a lot of your personal items around.

Rent a mini-storage or move items into a family member’s garage while your house is on the market. You won’t miss them for long since you’ll be moving your items into your new house very soon! 

Rearrange For Space

Virtual tours benefit from more space. If you’re taking pictures of a room that is stuffed to the brim with furniture and belongings, it’s going to look far less appealing to buyers.

Here’s an example of what NOT to do!

Buyers want“openness” and “space” in their next home, which is why open floor plans have been so popular.

When a buyer is looking at your virtual tour, they’re going to want to see the furniture arranged in such a way that it makes the room seem spacious.

This can be accomplished by using furniture (maybe not your own) like coffee tables, love seats, and other furnishings that make your house look great, but still allow for buyers to see the walls and floors without squinting.

Making these changes can will cause your virtual tours to stand out among all the rest!

Deep Clean

Doing a deep clean of your house is going to be key.

Hiring a professional service to go through your house and scrub every inch of it is a great investment, especially since you don’t have to do all of the work! Be sure to tell them to use solvents that are safe, but also have a natural shine to them.

Try to coordinate the cleaning so that the virtual tour pictures are taken within a few hours of the cleaning’s completion. Using a scented plugin will help develop a homey atmosphere.

Just make sure to avoid having the cleaners and the virtual tour company there at the same time.
