Slide 2 of 12: According to NAR's 2018 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, 44% of recent buyers started their search online. Of those, 87% found photos very useful in their home search. If 
your listing photos don’t show off the features of your home, prospective buyers may reject it without even taking a tour or going to the open house. Hiring a professional photographer and posting at least 30 photos of your home, inside and out, is a good way to attract buyers. Photography is often free for home sellers, as shoots are often conducted at the expense of real estate brokers as part of marketing the property.
Slide 3 of 12: Nothing turns off buyers like a 
dirty house. Hire a company to deep clean if you can’t do it yourself. “When the (home) is on the market, no matter what time of day or night, it should be clean and neat,” says Ellen Cohen, a licensed associate real estate broker with real estate brokerage Compass in New York City.

Key places to clean while your home is on the market include:

 Kitchen countertops.
 Inside cabinets and appliances.
 Floors and room corners where dust collects.
 Shelves.
 Bathroom counters, toilets, tubs and showers.
 Inside closets.
 Windows, inside and out.
 Scuffed walls, baseboards and doors.
 Basement and garage.
