4 Tips For Perfectly Pretty Listing Photos


Thinking about selling your home? Here are 4 tips to make sure your home is photo ready!

Tip #1: Declutter

Every buyer needs to be able to envision themselves living in the home, but that’s really hard to do when your family photos are all over the house, staring back at them. So the first step is to neutralize the home. This means using minimal furniture, simple color palettes, and very few knick knacks. 

Tip #2: Open And Airy

Open spaces are so much more welcoming and inviting. So be sure to keep the home open and airy. For a brighter look, change all the bulbs, turn on all the lights, and open all the window coverings.

Tip #3: Find Your “Golden Hour”

Does your home have an incredible sunset view? Or can you watch the sunrise as you sip coffee leaning against the kitchen sink? I’m sure your future buyers will too! Take note of all the times these magical moments happen, because it will be the best time to take pictures.

Tip #4: Glow Up The Outside

The outside of the home is usually the first photo that people see in your real. So make your curb appeal shine! Put away the garden hose, the kids’ bikes, and move the cars out of the driveway. Make sure hedges are trimmed away from the windows and there are strong, clean lines that you can see from the curb.

If you don’t have an agent who knows how to make your photos sparkle, your listing might turn off more home buyers than it brings in. The listing photos are the first impression that potential buyers will have of your home. So it’s important that they show your space in the best light.

And that’s where I come in!
