I think the key to understanding how to make your house sexy is recognizing the fact that selling homes is very similar to online dating. This is because the way to get the most people interested is to make the house attractive, or in this case sexy. The key is understanding what housing trends are the most desirable. There are certain looks in real estate most people find attractive, just like in dating there are certain looks most people find attractive.
Buying a house is often an emotional decision. Why do we call it “How to Make a House Sexy”? Because we are appealing to the emotional side of the buyer.
HOME SELLING IS LIKE ONLINE DATING
When I first got into real estate in 2003 many houses for sale only had a few listing photos, mostly of just the front of the house. Fast forward to 2019, now most listings have thirty or more photos! How many listing photos do you need? I think you need somewhere between 7-15 photos of the best features of the house. The curiosity to see more creates seduction, thus bringing more buyers in the house. Similarly in online dating, people show off their best features with hopes of meeting someone for a date to learn more about each other. The goal in home selling is to seduce buyers by making your listings “sexy” so buyers will want to come “date” them.
HOW TO MAKE A HOUSE SEXY
It’s not a requirement to show all rooms of a house in the listing photos. Use only pictures that highlight the best features of the house that are clean with nice lighting. Show off only the best features of the house, leaving something to be desired is sexy. A home is typically the most expensive thing people buy, so they will want to come look in person before making a final decision. The goal is to make your listings “sexy” so the most amount of buyers will want to come “date” it.
