Preparing Your Home for a Virtual Tour

Real Estate

 How to  prepare your home before filming a virtual tour.

1. Start by turning on all the lights in your home and opening the blinds or window coverings. You'll need optimal lighting to get the best footage, so your realtor will most likely schedule filming in the morning or late afternoon.

2. Be sure your home is clean before the virtual tour and remove all clutter and any furniture you don't want to be seen.

3. At Kate Ross Homes and Staging, will guide your thru the simple staging of your home beforehand so it looks presentable in the video. The great thing about staging for a virtual tour is you'll only have to keep it that way for a couple of hours before you can put everything back where it belongs.

4. Once the virtual tour of your house has been edited, it'll be ready to show potential buyers and add it to your listing. Anyone interested in taking a virtual tour can easily watch it online to get a good idea of what to expect in person.

5. When you’ve decided it's time to sell your home, a virtual tour can be a great way to get more people to see it and secure a buyer in less time than a traditional open house. Not only does it give potential buyers a first glimpse, but it also ensures that only people who are seriously considering purchasing your home request a tour or show up to the open house.
