KEEPING UP YOUR IMAGE

 

People have become so accustomed to posting and trading photographic images via e-mail, Facebook, and Instagram that they can hardly imagine doing without them. Sellers should keep this in mind if they hope to make a favorable impression on buyers with their online photos. According to a survey taken by a nationally known real estate website, an incredible 18 percent of buyers and sellers surveyed indicated that they wouldn’t even consider purchasing a property that did not have a listing with a photograph. In addition, the quality of the images matters. According to another online real estate company, homes with photos taken by a digital single-lens reflex camera garner an average of 61 percent more views than other properties. 

 

 

Before you post pictures of your home, one of the most important things to do is to de-personalize it. The more personal stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves living there. Put about a third of your personal items in storage. This includes family photos and personal keepsakes. We have a successful history of helping sellers and buyers in your community.

HINT: Not only do homes photographed with digital single-lens reflex cameras get more views, they also have an increased likelihood of selling when priced above $300,000.
