  NO CATS AND NO TOILETS WHEN SELLING YOUR HOUSE!   in the photos anyway!


A framed photo of a cat on the wall such as this one would be okay, but no kitties napping on the bed, no matter how cute they are when the house is for sale.  Believe it or not, there are people who don't appreciate Cats.

NOW WHEN YOUR HOUSE GOES ON THE MARKET., SOME THINGS YOU JUST DON'T WANT TO SEE IN THE PHOTOS.

and here is the not so pretty photo of a toilet.  A toilet never needs to be in front and center in a bath photo.  It is just not becoming!

Most understand not having your pets in the photos , but also remember to remove their food, their dishes, their water bowls, and their toys.  Only the cat can get excited over tripping over a fake mouse. 

 

 

Now Master Suites and Baths may sell houses, but toilets don't.  Now, I don't have any formal stats on this, but most people assume you do have a toilet, so no need to showcase the toilet in a photo.  And while you are at it, no need for toilet paper, trashcans, toilet brush holders to show up in the bath photo. 

I hope you understand my discussing these sensitive topics.  Get all the PERSONAL STUFF OUT of SIGHT.  THAT includes shampoo, toothpaste, hair brushes, makeup shaving cream, and so forth.  Think hotel ready here. When you walk in to the hotel suite, there isn't somebody elses half used shampoo bottle in the shower, is there?

 

Remember, now NO CATS and NO TOILETS in your photos when your house is on the MARKET.

I find it interesting that a lot of agents do not understand photo marketing.

Good advice, sometimes people don't realize their pets aren't as appealing to everyone.
