Home Staging & Real Estate Photography
Near Portland, Maine
First impressions count in everyday life, and arguably even more so when selling a home. Psychologists say that the human brain takes only 7 seconds to make an impression, mostly influenced by nonverbal cues. Because of this, buyers tend to quickly make up their minds, often before even setting foot on a property.
Potential buyers viewing your home will have several first impressions as they move from room to room. It’s important to make sure each one is positive and adds to the overall impact of your home. Factors such as lighting, proper staging, organization, and a cozy and comfortable vibe are all things buyers will consider while taking a closer look at your property.
As a seller, home staging and professional real estate photography services are extremely important to ensure your home stands out to potential buyers online and in person to create an excellent first impression.
Why is home staging & real estate photography important ?
The main goal of staging and real estate photography is to make it easier for potential buyers to visualize your Maine property as their next home. For a property owner, seeing this vision objectively can be understandably difficult. Being accustomed to your own home makes it hard to see changes that could make it function or look better. Many homeowners struggle to depersonalize, declutter, and organize their homes to the level necessary to be attractive to potential buyers.
Many realtors struggle to understand that staging and photography are about creating a measurable, marketable difference in the perceived value of your home, not about decorating or design.
