Professional photography is one of the most important aspects of your home’s marketing and advertising. This is made only more important by the fact that most homes are featured online on multiple different websites.
Before you have a photographer come over to shoot, I recommend that you clean, dust, and declutter your home. The point is to get everything neat and organized so the focus of the photographs is your home, and not the objects within it. I would also recommend removing any holiday decorations because they can date the photos, and some people feel that holiday photos are a bit gimmicky. Also, clear off your kitchen countertops. Your kitchen will look and feel much larger than it actually is!
Be sure to turn on all of your lights and open all of your windows. Brighter is always better!
Another thing to keep in mind is to remove traces of any pets that you may have. This will negatively affect the buyer’s idea of what condition your home might be in. Some people are also allergic to animals and this could be a deal-breaker for them.
"Your home’s photography can make or break a sale."
The cleaning doesn’t stop on the inside of your home. Mow your lawn, trim your hedges, and clean your gutters. There are a lot of things that you could do to the outside of your home, but the main idea is to have everything clean, green, and inviting. You need to lure your buyer to the front door and into your home.
I have a long list of other things you can do to improve your home before a photographer comes in, so don’t hesitate to continue this conversation with me via email or phone!
