In an ideal world, would you like to sell your house today and capitalise on a thriving and constantly growing property market in the UK? If so, you are probably held back by a fundamental lack of knowledge and an ability to distinguish your home in the eyes of buyers. While there may be a genuine opportunity to sell property and maximise value in the current market, this also means that there is an excess of supply to meet demand. Only the best value and most eye-catching properties will therefore prove successful, meaning that thousands more will be left unsold on the market.
Fortunately, there is technology at hand for those who have a desire to sell their home in 2015. Here are three of the best tools to help sell your property effectively in the year ahead.
When it comes to listing your home, you are effectively marketing it as a commercial entity. This means that you will need to present it in as favourable a light as possible, using high quality imagery to capture it in a striking and visually engaging manner. Great photography is definitely the place to start, however using photo editing software like Photoshop is the perfect way to help you get the most out the images you have by taking standard images and using subtle editing techniques to optimise their appeal. By improving the contrast and altering the lighting, you can market the best visual representation of your home to an engaged audience.
You’ll have to bear with us on this one, as while Google Maps is an excellent tool is does not instantly appeal as something that can enable you to sell your home. It is great for gathering useful information, however, as this feature enables you to take a virtual tour of your neighbourhood and view local amenities through potential buyers’ eyes. You can also get a clear understanding of how the exterior of your property looks to viewers, which identifies any improvements that may need to be made.
Create 3D Floor Plans for your Home
There are a growing number of property market service providers who look to create an immersive, interactive viewing experience for potential buyers. A key part of this is 3D floor plans, which can be created using the likes of Sketchup Pro, a 3D modelling program that allows you to easily translate the layout of your property into a digital floor plan or even a full 3D render if you have the time. By replicating the floor plan of your home in three dimensions, you can add an interactive element to your property listing and achieve a critical edge in the marketplace.
