5 Tips to Get Great Listing Photographs of Your Home

5 Tips to Get Great Listing Photographs of Your Home

Kitchen

oneFind Something Else To Do – It is tempting to want to stick around and help point out the best angles for the photographer, but resist that temptation. Photographers often work best when left alone with the agent to stage and showcase the best features of your home.

twoPick Up, Pick Up, Pick Up – All homes show best with the minimum amount of “stuff” in them. Miscellaneous items (including toys) tend to detract from the size and feel of the room. Pick up items on counters, tables, bathrooms and any horizontal surface and stash them away before the photographer arrives.

threeLight ‘Em Up – Lighting is a photographer’s best friend when it comes to interior photography. Check to make sure that all of the bulbs in your lights are working and match with their partners. A chandelier with 3 cool bulbs, 1 warm bulb and 1 burned out bulb doesn’t make the right impression.

fourDon’t Forget the Backyard – The backyard is often one of the most important “rooms”. Do a quick rake of leaves and sweep of walkways and decks before the photographer arrives. Stash any moveable toys, garden equipment and sports equipment to an out of sight location. Remember, Buyers want to see the potential of the yard, not remnants of your last barbeque.

fiveMinimize Holiday Decor – Your Halloween decorations might be the best on the block, but when it comes to showcasing your home, holiday decor should stay in the closet. Keep in mind that displaying holiday items not only distracts from the important features of your home, but the carved pumpkins or elf on a shelf are permanent clues in the photographs as to when your home went on the market.
