Sellers Do You Know What Your Listing Looks Like Online?

Sellers, when you contract with a brokerage to list your home for sale are you getting involved?  Yes, the real estate agent is supposed to be the expert when it comes to showing your property at its' best, however they may miss things from time to time.  

Did your agent take the pictures with a cell phone and/or from the window of their car?  Are the pictures blurry?  Are the pictures too dark?  Do the pictures show mostly the unsellables (beds, dining room tables, artwork, toilets, etc.) instead of your home?  Did they leave all their paperwork/purses/sunglasses/keys, etc. on the counter or table so they also show in the pictures of probably your most valuable asset to sell?  Was it a dark, dreary, rainy day and your home looks depressing?

Did they leave the freshly washed laundry piled up on the bed for the pictures or dirty dishes in the sink or towels all over the bathroom floor?  Are there people or animals in the pictures? Are the toilet seats up?  

Sometimes these things slip through the cracks so make sure when you list your home you also go through the pictures that will be advertised to the public and make sure they would also appeal to you if you were in the market for a new home and you were looking at your home.

Demand quality photographs because this is what your potential buyers see.  This is how your home is represented for sale online which is where most buyers today start their search for a new home.  

The photos do make a HUGE difference in whether or not your home appeals to anyone.

Good morning Vickie. This is very important. If you don't check, shame on you. Now, do yourself a favor and use a bigger font so everyone can easily share in your wisdom.

Thanks Kristin Johnston - REALTOR® - it's amazing how many of them don't look and/or don't say anything when they do.
