Good Home Photos Attract Potential Buyers

Good photos of a home hitting the market is one of the main items that attracts a large number of prospective buyers.

Some buyers judge properties by pictures alone and others may hesitate to even attend an open house at a home that has no pictures, often assuming that there is something wrong with it.   According to MSN Real Estate, here is a quick checklist of what to do.

Give buyers options

When it comes to showing off a home, more is better.   In fact, research shows that homes with more photos get more views.  That's because buyers may want to see images of every room in the house.   

1. De-clutter each room and make improvements or upgrades before taking pictures.

2. Clean and remove personal items to make a room appear larger and more modern.

3. In addition to taking images of each room - including bedrooms, basements, kitchens, bathrooms and bonus rooms - and  be sure to include pictures of the exterior of the home. Curb appeal is another factor that may lure more buyers into the fold.

4. Most real estate agents also agree that homeowners living in scenic areas with a view should include these images as well.

Don't skimp on quality

Images that look unprofessional may turn buyers off, so always insist on high quality.  That mean no photos taken with a cell phone or disposable camera.  

Consider the time of day when the home looks its best.  

And if you can do it well, consider a video of the home.  More people are finding homes on YouTube these days.  And a good quality video can be just as appealing as numerous photos.
