I will not fill this post with a ton of horrible pictures but if you are an Agent or a seller looking to sell, not a set of old golf clubs, but your most valuable asset. Demand the best!
I don't think anyone really gets in a car anymore to look for a house, they get on the computer. If the pictures of your house are small, or fuzzy, or came from a camera phone, people will pass you by. Curb appeal starts online not in the driveway anymore. You can hire a professional photographer for a couple hundred bucks or buy a nice camera and take some classes.
Whatever you do, DON'T POST BAD PICTURES ONLINE!
This is a friend's house in WA. Waterfront picture taken with a "Crayola, your first digital camera" ages 1-3.
I Think! Are you kidding me?????? I won't even put up the pictures of the inside there so embarrassing.
This is the same yard taken with a POS. Not what you're thinking, just a point and shoot camera. It is a lot better but doesn't yank you off the couch and make you want to go look at the property. Well it kind of does!
Are you starting to see the difference?
If you're selling your home ask for the best! If you settle for less coming out of the gate you will probably settle for less all the way to the closing table.
Best of luck to all you sellers out there and if you have any questions about this or anything else feel free to shoot me an email.
P.S. They are changing Short Sales, if your underwater and need or want to sell shoot me an email and I'll give you some great info.
