Use free floor planning tools to visualize your home

When marketing a listing, lots and lots of photographs help give buyers an idea of what the home is like before they tour the property. Professional photos online increase the amount of qualified interest in a home. But one often overlooked piece of information you can provide to help buyers is an accurate floor plan.

Up-to-date, detailed floor plans give buyers context for all those photos presented with your listing. While photos tell buyers how the rooms look, the floor plan can help them understand a bit more about the flow of the home, the relative location of the home’s amenities, and (most importantly) give them an idea if their furniture will fit. If a buyer has an heirloom piece of furniture they’re unwilling to part with, a floor plan can save everyone involved a lot of time and energy. There’s no sense in going down the path of offer and counteroffer if the floor plan turns out to be a deal breaker.

If you don’t have a current floor plan of your home, there are a couple of handy resources online to help you create one. (If you’re buying a home, these tools can also help you visualize how you might like to arrange the furniture in a room once you’ve moved in.) Check out both of these tools online and see which one you like to use the best: With Floor planner you can recreate your home, garden or office in just a few clicks and furnish your plans with our huge library of objects. ( Anyone can create state-of-the-art 3D visualizations of homes and properties with RoomSketcher. (

Regardless of the tool you use, consider creating a floor plan to give your listing an information advantage over others in the market. Going the extra mile to make it convenient for prospective buyers to get a clear picture of your house is both helpful and it inspires trust.
