2D Floorplan Apartment


If real estate photos have one failing, it’s that they don’t show prospective buyers a home’s layout. They’re great for conveying its look, size, space and feel, as well as its surroundings and view, but they say nothing about how it all hangs together; about the practicalities of living there.

Residential floor plans fill that gap. They enable buyers to piece together the photos in their mind; to see how the rooms are arranged, how the property ‘flows’, the number of windows in each room, the way the space is oriented, how much storage space is available, and so on. Prospective buyers can then imagine how they’d arrange their furniture, which kids would get what rooms and how they could watch the kids in the backyard from the kitchen window.

This is critical, because buyers are more likely to choose to inspect a property that already ‘makes sense’ to them, especially if they’re from out of town. Perhaps more importantly, when they imagine themselves – and their kids and furniture – actually being in the house, they instantly develop an emotional attachment to it.
