When I take a listing the first thing I do is prepare the seller for the listing photos. The listing photos are our first impression to potential buyers and my goal is to make them as impressive and inviting as possible. I like to include 25 to 30 photos with the listing, and find I need to take twice that amount to get just the right shots.
The main points I like to get across in my photos are:
• Plenty of counter space in both kitchen and bath(s);
• Highlight the major selling features of the home i.e. hardwood floors, fireplace, formal dining room...; and
• Lots of natural light.
What will really help me out is if you can have some things done before I get there:
• Kitchen and bath(s) clean and beds made;
• Kitchen and bath counters clear and as empty as possible. We want to show off as much counterpace as possible; and
• As few, if any, knickknacks/photos out as possible. We don’t want them distracting away from the real selling features of the home.
I tend to move things around and rearrange furniture while I take the photos so don’t be alarmed! You can just sit back and relax - until I move you out of my shot.
I’m always hoping for a nice sunny day so as to get a beautiful shot of the front of your home. If that doesn’t work out, I’ll shoot what I can and then return on a nicer day.
Yes, it’s time consuming for both us of, but we’re both working towards the same goal: Getting Your Home Sold.
