Whether you’re gearing up to start showing your home after putting up Denver real estate for sale, or interest has dwindled since the initial rush of visitors, it may be time to rethink your game plan if you feel you aren’t getting enough interest. The problem may be that the impression of your home lacks pizazz. You should work with your agent on bringing interest back. Here are some ways you can amp up interest in your home:

Highlight your home’s strong points

Every home has its weak spots, but there’s nothing wrong with working to bring attention to your home’s strong points instead. Take a look at the most desirable features in your home and decorate or arrange in order to bring focus to that feature. If you have a beautiful fireplace, center the seating around it and have a warm fire going if the weather permits. If your pool is a wonderland, make sure the waterfall is running when you’re holding showings. Just repainted the exterior? Give your yard a little landscaping to showcase this. Highlighting the most prized features of your home not only gives a greater overall impression, but it will give your home more character as well if your buyers leave with certain elements sticking out in their mind. Some buyers will be looking at a lot of different houses, and so a house with character will be more memorable.

Take professional photos

If your interest is stagnant, the problem may be that your photographs aren’t reeling anyone in. If your photos are low quality or unflattering, you still may get some visitors at first out of curiosity or from those that always check out a new listing. But after this is over a bit after you’ve started showing, then it might be time to take new pictures. A good idea is to hire a professional photographer and stager, a person who decorates a house with showing and selling in mind. If that’s not in the budget, your agent will still be able to make suggestions for better photos.

Redecorate or update

If you feel like your home presentation is dull, redecorating and updating can spice up the look of your house. This could be as simple as getting some bright throw pillows for the couch or as complicated as retiling a bathroom.
Give your marketing plan a second look

The problem could be simply that you’re not reaching enough people. Ask your agent what outlets they are using to reach buyers, and consider reaching out to different websites or client bases.
