That makes it important to stage for the internet shopper. How do you do that? The traditional staging rules apply to having a clean and clutter free home but to take that one step further you must make sure that the internet shopper does not see anything in the pictures that rule out your home.
All lights and fans must be operational. Use the highest wattage bulbs you can during the picture taking and during all showings. It is important to show light. Open up the blinds! Make the house as light and bright as it can be. Pay special attention to distracters to the light. No collectables on the window seals for instance. Let the outside in everywhere.
Step one is to have your home clean and clutter free. This is so important it means money to you so please; please do not disregard the feedback about this subject.
