These days, you can do almost anything online. Shopping, dating, socializing, and more can be done from anywhere you have an internet connection. Home buyers have started beginning their searches online as well.

Because of this, home sellers need to make sure they have a strong web appeal. We take special care to make sure our homes are picture perfect when they are viewed online. Here are our top six tips for improving your Bergen County home’s web appeal.

  1. Ensure there is plenty of light. The more light you have in a room, the bigger it looks. Light helps to sell a home.
  2. Declutter the home. You want the focus to be on your home itself, not on the fridge magnets or other knickknacks you have strewn about. It’s important for buyers to be able to visualize themselves living in your home. Most things should be boxed up and packed away.
  3. Stage your home. Organize your home in the right way, which will make it appealing to the most number of buyers possible. A professional stager can surely help with this.
  4. Clean up the backyard. A dirty backyard is a deal killer. Put away any tools or yard equipment that are lying around and emphasize your green and open spaces.
  5. Improve the rooms. If a room isn’t up to par, we won’t include it on the online listing. From that point, it’s your job to make sure it looks its best when people come to visit the home. Walls and floors need to be spotless.
  6. Tend to your garage and basement. If you have time to get them sorted out, we urge you to do so. Buyers will like to see how much space they really have to work with. It’s hard to picture that with a full room.

You want the focus to be on your home itself.
