PHOTOGRAPHY AND REAL ESTATE

HOW OFTEN DO YOU LOOK AT HOMES ONLINE? SOME PEOPLE TELL ME THEY LOOK ALL THE TIME EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE NOT IN THE MARKET TO BUY OR SELL. SOME ARE LOOKING FOR DECORATING IDEAS; OTHERS LOOKING FOR THEIR DREAM HOME IF THEY COULD AFFORD IT AND OTHERS JUST CURIOUS AS TO WHAT THE LATEST STYLE MIGHT BE.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PHOTOGRAPHY? DO YOU ENJOY PROFESSIONALLY PHOTOGRAPHED HOMES OR IF THE AGENT TAKES A PHOTO ARE YOU OKAY WITH IT? WHAT SITES DO YOU FREQUENT...ZILLOW, REALTOR.COM OR SOMEPLACE ELSE LIKE A REAL ESTATE COMPANY?

AS AN AGENT, I AM VERY PARTICULAR ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHY. I FOCUS ON ACTUAL BUYERS AND NOT "LOOKERS." I THINK SERIOUS BUYERS WANT THE HOME TO LOOK "MOVE IN READY" IN MOST CASES. I ENCOURAGE THE SELLERS I REPRESENT TO DE-CLUTTER, STORE ITEMS THAT MAKE ROOMS OR THE HOME SEEM SMALL; ORGANIZE CLOSETS AND KEEP COUNTERS FREE OF MOST ITEMS. RARELY DO I PHOTOGRAPH A HOME MYSELF. I MOST OFTEN USE A PROFESSIONAL AND I MAKE SURE I GO THROUGH THE HOME BEFORE THE PHOTOGRAPHER ARRIVES. THE MORE LOOKS ON THE INTERNET BY A SERIOUS BUYER, THE MORE ACTUAL APPOINTMENTS THE SELLER WILL RECEIVE. THE RIGHT PRICE AND BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS WILL LEAD TO MORE OFFERS AND A SALE!
