One way to get ready for the photographer
A seller who is getting their home prepared to list in the next few months wants to know if their house is ready for a professional photographer?
You can wait until I get over for a listing appointment or...take out your camera/smartphone and start clicking away in each room.
Now look at these pictures ask is this the way you want your house shown?
How would this shot look in a print advertisement? How would it look on a website? How would it look in my blog? How would it look on the brochure?
Since most buyers start their search on the internet, they don't want to read how beautiful the home is. They want to see it...they want pictures and lots of them.
These photos, go into the Multiple List System, also known as the MLS. Our system allows 150 photos (we don't need that many), but there are times when we have a small house or condo that is vacant, and no way can we find numerous angles to capture this type of property. So what do we do with these spaces? I like to use exterior shots, landscaping, the neighborhood, playground, a nearby shopping center, or proximity to the pool or neighborhood parks.
The first week in May is perfect for the flowering bushes, like the azaleas above from my garden. We could go ahead and get a few exterior photos for a teaser ad.
