5 Keys to Marketing Your Home

In this competitive Olympia housing market, it takes effort to make your home stand out, which is why marketing your property effectively makes a huge impact. When it comes to selling your home, it's important to make a good first impression. Showcasing your home in the best light possible can make all the difference, and photos and videos are a great way to do just that.

Here are a few tips for using photos and video to market your home:


Take Professional Quality Photos

Professional photos will help showcase your home in the best light possible. A professional photographer will be able to capture all the right angles and make your home look its best.

“It used to take 7-10 really good photos to convince a buyer about a home,” Greene Realty agent Matt Guile says. “That number has increased to 15-20 as the kind of sweet spot for attracting a buyer.”

Make sure your photos are well-lit and color balanced, and put your property’s best foot forward when sharing them on the website or both printed promotional materials.

Showcase All the Highlights

Take photos of the kitchen, living room, bedrooms, bathrooms, and any other highlights that make your home special.

Include Videos

Video production has become an important tool for selling property. Videos are a great way to give potential buyers a better look at your home. Show off the layout of the rooms, the views from the windows, and any other features that make your home unique.


Use Multiple Platforms The internet and social media have allowed for new ways for sellers to showcase their homes. Don't limit yourself to just one platform. Use a variety of platforms to market your home, including social media, real estate websites, and any other outlets you can find. Your agent works in these spaces, so make sure to lean on their expertise.

Make it User-Friendly

Make sure your photos and videos are easy to find and access. Put them on your website, share them on social media, or even create a YouTube channel for your home.

Photos and videos are a great way to market your home and make a great first impression. Professional quality photos will show off all your home's best features, and videos will give potential buyers a better look at the layout and views. And don't forget to use multiple platforms - the more places you can showcase your home, the more likely you are to find a buyer. So, get creative and start marketing your home today!
