DO THE PICTURES IN YOUR LISTINGS ENTICE BUYERS?
Home owners are often too busy getting ready to move to a new location to notice the pictures that are taken to support the listing of their house in the Multiple Listing Service. These photos can have a huge impact on the sale of the property.
Location, price and condition are extremely important to a successful sale, but pictures are what a potential buyer looks at closely. With over 80% of buyers today shopping on the web before calling a REALTOR, pictures accompanying the property information sheet can make the difference between exciting a buyer's interest or passing it by.
My favorite gripe as a Shell Knob, MO agent, is a listing for a waterfront property with no picture supporting this information. SHOW ME THE WATER VIEW!
Another aggravation is an inviting front view of a new builders' spec home - but no interior shots?
I came across another school of thought yesterday, while searching the MLS - leave all the closet doors open in bedrooms and baths! Those pictures were disconcerting and did nothing to the appeal of the rooms.
Or how about the fireplace pictures - up close and personal. Yes, that is a fireplace, but where does it sit in the scheme of the room it is in?
Here are a few samples of shots that don't do the property seller any favors. None of these homes sold last year.
