3 Tips To Get Your Home Ready For Professional Real Estate Photos

Real Estate Blog

If you're selling your home, your real estate agent will use a variety of methods to advertise your property. One of the most important things to consider when your home is for sale is its online listing. In this day and age, many home buyers begin their home search by looking at single family home listings that can be found online. Your real estate agent will craft a great home description and include information about your lot size, school district, and utility companies. In addition, your home listing will also include photos of your home. The photos used in your listing can make a huge difference. Use the following tips to help you prepare for your home for professional real estate photos:

Make Sure Your Home is Decluttered

The main purpose of professional real estate photos is to entice potential buyers to schedule a showing of your home. Thus, it is essential for the photographs used on your single family home listing to show your home in the very best light. If your real estate agent has scheduled a photographer to come to your home to photograph it, take the time to completely declutter your house. Make sure that shoes are put in closets, toys are in toy chests, and everything is off the floor.

Take the Time to Depersonalize

When potential buyers are looking for a home, they want to be able to imagine their own family living in it. This means that the best thing that you can do before your home is photographed is depersonalize it as much as possible. Remove family photos from the wall and take drawings that your children made off of the refrigerator. Ideally, you want your home to resemble a model home in the listing photos so potential buyers can see themselves living there, not focus on the family currently living there.

Don't Forget the Little Details

Your home should be in pristine condition before it is photographed. This means that every little detail needs to be attended to. Do a walk-through of your home and make sure that all of the counters in your kitchen and bathrooms are completely cleared. It is also important to ensure that the beds in each bedroom are properly made. Dust all shelves and furniture and also take the time to clean all of your windows and any glass doors that you may have in your home.
