Real Estate Agent’s Guide to Listing Photos
In most cases, a buyer’s first impression of your home is online. A listing photo shoot with your realtor will help you take the right pictures in the most attractive lighting. Armed with years of experience in the industry and community, they are aware of what buyers want to see, what turns them away, and how to play up the unique intricacies of your property.
During the listing photo process, your real estate agent will also consult with you on how to stage the interior of your home and what furniture and decor to add and omit. It is important to take this process seriously. If you fail to add interior and exterior photos to your online listing, it may appear illegitimate, discontinued, or incomplete.
First, take the time to sit down with your agent to create a cleaning and organization plan to prepare for your photo shoot. Consider hiring a professional cleaning company, remove shabby and outdated furniture, and put away clutter such as toys and family photos.
Once the home is spotless, prepare your list of shots for the shoot. Your realtor will recommend photos from the curb, at the doorway, and in each room. Capture day and night photos to show off the house’s dynamic beauty and take pictures of each of the home’s selling points, such as the pool, whirlpool tub, or newly remodeled bathrooms.
Do you have a beautiful view of the sunset from your living room window or a particularly inviting patio area? Capture it. Finally, no number of photos is too many. Take a variety of differently angled shots on the day of the shoot and sit down with your realtor to choose the best ones.
