Pre-Listing Photography Tips

· Showing Your Home in its Best Light ·

The photos taken of your home to be marketed on the internet are a huge asset in terms of showcasing your home properly. Do not take the process of prepping your home for such photos lightly.

In order for the photographer to do what they do best, your home needs to be photo ready. It really is not as hard as you may think. First and foremost, remove all family photos and personal items (awards, calendars, toiletries, toys, cosmetics, etc.). We are trying to showcase three things — square footage, views and architectural detail. Therefore, we need to rid your home of any distractions. This includes cleaning up your pet area. Next, open window treatments and blinds for ample light. Empty waste baskets, lower toilet seats, clean and wipe all sinks, faucets and countertops. Turn on all lights, lamps and any accent lighting.

In 2018, 44 percent looked for properties online first. The world we live in today is a digital one and searching for a home is no different. Buyers now have apps that let them search by location and neighborhoods. Online searching maximizes the ability to compare and contrast homes on the market by selected features. Most of this is done before a potential home buyer connects with a real estate agent.
