Many REALTOR©s and even home owners post homes they are selling online in order to garner interest in the homes they’re selling.

Your home will look more appealing.
The first photograph should be an appealing one of your home. Particularly, it should be a good photo of the outside of your home. Every other photo should be well-lit. All of the angles of the photos should make your home look large and welcoming, and of course very clean. making the home look less personal is also helpful. This includes staging and cleaning. This allows potential buyers to imagine themselves living in your home after they move forward with a purchase.
