□ Is the house picked up to present a clutter free home.
□ Is the yard kept up and mowed the tours will begin and end with a shots of the front and back yards.
□ Is the house clean and free from anything that would be a turnoff to the viewer of the tour.
Note: You want the viewer of the 360° tour to evaluate your home and not be distracted by the objects and temporary condition of your home. Even thought your possession will not be in the home when they move in a nice and tidy house is more appealing to someone and it allows then to more easily imagine what it would be like for them to be living in your home. I believe that doing the above tasks would benefit the buyer and the seller and increase the chance of a successful transaction.
This is a check list that I have come up with to give to the home owner to make sure that they understand what needs to be done before I come a do the 360º tours. This ensures that at least the owner has an idea of what image we are trying to portray with the 360 tour.
