Virtual home tours and showings are increasingly popular in real estate. Still photos and walkthrough videos don’t always capture the heart of a property the way that being there in person can. Here are a few things to keep in mind when staging your home for a virtual tour.

  • Start at the Door

Touch up the paint on your door, make sure that any flowers or other decorations are well cared for, and clean up any messes that might be in the front yard

  • Accent With Art

Remove as many personal effects as possible. Replace them with pieces of art or other items that break up the monotony of bare walls or empty floors. A wall-mounted TV, modular fireplace or other accents can also work well for this purpose.

  • Cut the Clutter

Decluttering is important when showing a house. Potential buyers tend to overlook if your home is still being lived in. Clutter makes a home look less appealing online.

  • Use Positioning to Your Advantage

Showcase the space available in your home by placing tables or other large pieces of furniture in one corner of the shot, letting the photo show off how much area there really is in the living room. You can also show off your favorite views from within the house by taking pictures from the same angle you’d be sitting at, letting viewers see the home in the same ways that you enjoy.
