What is a Good Picture Worth?

by Alisa Coyle

When looking to purchase a home, the first thing that a potential buyer will often see is the online photos. This means that it is crucial that these photos on your home’s listing are as compelling as they can be. Thankfully, the real estate professionals at Greater Boston Realty have you covered. We will take professional photos of your home that will have buyers hungry to come visit in person.

As you prepare to sell your home, you must practice looking at it with a buyer’s eyes. Be impartial and make realistic decisions about how you should improve your property so that it will be seen in the best possible light.

Often, the first photo on your listing will be the front of your home. These exterior photos will be the buyer’s first impression of your home, so make them count! This may mean power washing the driveway and sidewalk, or planting some seasonal flowers for an added touch of color.

For the photos taken inside your home, your potential buyers will need to be able to envision themselves living inside the home. For optimal appeal, you should hide any personal items, including family photos. The more your home looks like a model home, the better your reception will likely be.

Easy Renovation Projects for New Homeowners

by Alisa Coyle

When you purchase a new home in Boston, you may get the urge to spruce it up and make it your own. If you’re looking for a few easy and inexpensive DIY renovation projects, here are some suggestions from the Massachusetts real estate experts here at Greater Boston Realty:

You can’t have a second chance at a first impression. That’s why it’s so important to make sure that your front entryway is making the right statement. Spruce up the paint on your mailbox, add a plant or a wreath to your doorway, and make sure that your walkway is smooth and level.

Another simple DIY project is installing crown molding and baseboards in your home.  With relatively little effort, you can make a huge impact on your new home. While you’re at it, it only takes a screwdriver to install new kitchen and bath hardware – the hardest part of that project is picking out new knobs!

There is one thing that every homeowner wishes for: more storage. Take matters into your own hands by installing organizers in your kitchen, bathrooms, closets, garage, and more! A little bit of elbow grease can help you and your family stay organized for years to come!

If you are looking for a new home in the Boston area, contact Greater Boston Realty at 617-469-4040. We can help you find the home that fits your needs in West Roxbury, Roslindale, Jamaica Plain, and beyond!
