Take Great Marketing Photos

Toni Weidman encourages us to take not good but excellent photos for the MLS and all other home marketing.  Sometimes the ole saying a picture is worth a thousand words is very true, especially when trying to sell a home.

I look forward to working with you with all your Albuquerque and Rio Rancho NM real estate needs.  I promise to take great marketing photo's and strive to exceed your expectations!

CameraHow do you focus on the flow and not the furniture. How many times have you looked in MLS wanting to see if a home was an open floor plan, and found only pictures of the furniture in the home?  Some buyers don’t want to see homes that are all boxy and have small cut-up rooms; but most times you can’t tell that from the pictures.

When taking pictures for MLS and your websites, don’t aim at the headboard of the bed, it’s NOT STAYING.

Don’t aim at the couch in the center of the wall. The idea is to catch the corners of the room that show two or more walls to give people the sense of how large or small an area is.

Don’t focus on the luxurious entertainment center; try to show how much room there is around it and give some perspective on where the seating arrangement is in relation to it.

Sure those kids rooms are Laura Ashley and have some really cute things, but they aren’t staying either. Don’t take the picture from the corner to another corner-take it so that three
walls show and give an idea of size.
And last, back up, way back, and take a picture of the rooms as they flow into each other. Show the flow, show how the kitchen and breakfast rooms flow off the great room. It’s not all about the box known as a room.

Does all this take some extra time and effort? Yes, but if you look at the house and think it out, walk around, back and forth -you can do it. It’s like
staging a home on camera. Of course, if it isn’t an open floor plan, you will have to improvise.

Flowing rooms

BTW, the camera was my father-in-law's - now ours. And, no, I didn't use it here.
