Here’s Our Marketing Plan For Your Chicago Home
Home Prep & Staging
Welcome, our marketing plan for your Chicago home begins with home prep and staging. This is where we give you advice on how to make your home show its best. Often this includes a to-do list made up of minor home repair tasks and deep cleaning that will translate into selling your home for top dollar. With prep and staging complete, we’re ready for the photo shoot! Read about the best Chicago improvements that add value to your home.
Next comes the photo and virtual tour shoot. Your home will be professionally photographed by ThreeSixtyChicago using the latest digital photography equipment and Matterport 3D virtual tour technology. It’s the latest technology for “streetview” or “flythrough” first person property walk-throughs and is enabled for smartphones and tablets as well as desktop and laptop viewing. From anywhere in the world, potential buyers can move intuitively through the home’s interior, then zoom out to either a dollhouse or floor plan view for a unique perspective of the layout. Our photographer knows just how to stage and light your home’s rooms to make them look really great online providing potential buyers with a meaningful, emotional, way to visualize your home as if they are there. Truly amazing technology!
