Bedrooms In Disarray

July 15th, 2015 · 2 Comments

It’s difficult for some sellers to tidy up their bedrooms when selling.

Messy sellers are clueless to the fact that buyers judge a house by its photos.

Buyers don’t want to see chaos.

Or clutter.

There’s a fishing pole in the bedroom because?

Where’s the bed?  Where’s the window?

At least the bed is made.

Seven Suggestions For Better Real Estate Photos

June 30th, 2015 · 1 Comment

Buyers rely on photos when looking for homes on-line.  Best to have good real estate photos.

Be careful of taking photos too close up.  You’ll get a blurry photo plus your reflection.  Buyers want to see the whole thing, not a portion.

Be mindful of bright backgrounds.  They’ll overexpose the photo.

Don’t shoot into the sun either.  Come back another time if needed.  Or use your hand to block the sun.  [This was the only photo available of the property]

Don’t use a fish-eye lens, especially in a bathroom.  It’s creepy.

Don’t take a photo of a print.  It’s tacky.  Go outside and take a real photo of your house.

Be careful of window reflections.  Try a different angle or be sure the street view is nice.

Don’t use time stamps on photos.

Why bother with these drapes?

The tidiest room of the house.  Notice how the bedroom window goes to the family room from the earlier photos.
