Video Transcript: Selling your home? Be sure it’s camera-ready.

The first look at your home potential buyers will likely get is through the lens of a camera.

Welcome to Today’s News Update everyone, I’m Jenny Dunn.

Buyers are increasingly turning the the web to get a first look at homes they might be interested in. The Chicago Association of Realtors has some tips on making your home camera ready.

First, take some time to declutter and depersonalize your home. Removing extra furniture will make rooms appear larger. Also put everyday items like utensils, cleaning supplies and toys out of sight. Take down family photos and remove any old magazines or newspapers.

Give your house a good cleaning. Photos may show evidence of dirt that otherwise may be overlooked. Be sure that windows are clean and streak-free, as well as stainless steel appliances.

Outside, be sure your lawn and landscaping are well manicured and avoid having vehicles appear in the pictures.

Finally, take a few of your own digital photos and review them to see how your home will look to potential buyers checking out your home on line.

We hope this information is useful to you. Thanks for watching. We look forward to seeing you next time.
