Putting your home up for sale?

Are you wondering how to capture your home in its best light for potential buyers?

The Internet can work wonders for you if you know what you are doing. I have seen buyers fall in love with a home from merely seeing pictures of it on the Internet.

It is amazing how impactful the pictures of your home on the Internet are. They can deter or encourage a potential customer from taking the step to visit your house. Often times the pictures that you post on the Internet offer your home’s first impression. These photos set the stage for potential buyers.

Today, we are going to review with you the secrets to successful listing pictures.

The Curb Shot

Capture your home’s curb appeal and take a photo from the street. The best way to do this is making sure you get your home’s “best side” and that the roof line is parallel with the photo’s frame.

The Inviting Shot

Take a photo from the perspective of the outside entry way with the door opening. According the Zillow.com, “An attractive front door and entryway go a long way in setting the tone for the rest of your home. Leaving the door open in one of your photos can also send a welcoming message.”

The Best of What Your Home Has To Offer Shot

Have you done some recent renovations to your home? Show them off and take pictures of them. Whether you have renovated your kitchen or your bathroom, take the time to take photos of the best of what your home has to offer.

A Few Quick Tips

  • Take the time to make sure that you don’t get caught in photos when you are taking them. So often we see photos with the homeowner’s reflection in the mirror.
  • Make sure to clean your home before the photo shoot. Just like you would clean before someone was coming over to look at the home, you want to make sure you present your home in its best light.
  • When shooting the inside of your home, make sure to do it during the day when there is a lot of light. Remember the more light the better.
  • When taking a photo of the outside of your home, don’t be afraid to take one at night. When you do though, make sure that you turn on all the lights.
