Pinterest is the latest social media craze enabling businesses and individuals to collect and track interesting visuals and web links, and then organize them into self-labeled “pin boards.”
For example, you can create a pin board labeled, “Places I want to travel” or “Cars I want to drive” or “Home Showing Ideas.” If you’re trying to sell a house, this last pin board is a great way to collect beautiful images that show how to stage every room in your home so buyers will fall in love with it.
Recently, Homeinsurance.org wrote a blog post about helpful Pinterest boards for home buyers. I found that some of these boards would also be very useful if you’re trying to sell a home. So let me introduce you to a few of these home selling idea boards — which just may launch you into your own late night obsession:
American Realty – Expert Advice on Selling Your Home: This pin board gives you some great visual tips on how to make your home stand out in today’s competitive real estate market, including tips for decluttering and organizing your basement, garage, kitchen countertops, closets and much more.
Home Depot – Curb Appeal: Showcases lighting and interior fixtures, garden ideas and how to create captivating entryways, porches and flower-filled window boxes.
Jess Ica – Green Solutions: Shows you how to get your home sparkling clean using simple, everyday products such as lemon and salt. For example, you’ll learn how to remove furniture dents from your carpet using ice cubes and how to use baby oil to make your faucets glisten.
These are just a few examples of pin boards that can motive you in your home selling efforts. When you’re ready to take a break from admiring these great boards, and want to check out something completely different, you can take a look at my Amazing World board, filled with captivating images taken by photographers all over the planet.
