About ‘Staging’ your property for photographs online

According to realestate.com.au Victorian sales manager Ben Auchett there are five things you can do to get more people to view your property.
1. Know your suburb demographic
Work out who you want to target and highlight features of your home that appeal to that audience.
2. Use a professional property photographer
One who knows the right light and angle to frame each room will make even the basic lounge room look great.
3. Stage your house for your audience
Home staging experts really understand what appeals to buyers and what will catch their eye in a photo.
4. Listen to your estate agent

5. Know your competition in your suburb
