If you’re selling your home, don’t just put any picture on the online listing. Hiring a professional photographer to take pictures of your home can be the difference between selling your home fast and having it sit on the market for months. Keep these tips in mind to ensure that you find the best photographer to help sell your home.
- Look at online portfolios. Many photographers try to create artistic renditions with their pictures, but that’s not what you want for pictures of your home. Look for photographers that have posted pictures of houses done in the same style you’re looking for.
- Ask about software. After taking the pictures, most of the pictures will probably need to be enhanced with some type of software. Make sure that the photographer knows about the best software to do the job.
- Look for small bathroom pictures. It’s very difficult to showcase a small bathroom, such as a half bath. Look for examples of how the photographer has shot these areas in the past.
- Get the right pictures. After deciding on a photographer, make sure that they get all the right pictures of your home. The most important is a picture of the exterior of your home since it will be highlighted when people search for your home. Also make sure they get pictures of the following areas:
o Master bedroom
o Master bathroom
o Any unique features such as built in bookshelves
o Small areas of your home such as laundry rooms and half baths.
