WHY PREP FOR PHOTOS?
It's where buyers start
The majority of home buyers start their search online, so it is important to make the first impression count! Follow these tips to prepare your home for the best real estate photos possible.
Online “curb appeal” - the front exterior is usually the first photo buyers see
The back yard should be an oasis to relax
DINING ROOM / TABLE
LIVING / FAMILY ROOM
A good nights rest recharges the body and mind
Don’t forget about guest bedrooms
WHAT TO EXPECT
Hi, I am Shannon Herod, owner, and photographer of Get Real Estate Photos. I am looking forward to photographing your home!
I want the photos of your home to be the best they can be. This requires teamwork and cooperation that will result in a fantastic presence when your listing goes live on the market. That first impression and those early days on the market are critical to getting your home sold fast. So, we will work hard to make sure your home will be featured in its best light.
When I arrive to take photos of your property, I ask that all staging and cleaning be done prior to my arrival. To efficiently maintain my busy schedule and deliver the level of service my clients expect, I can not spend unnecessary time at the home waiting for it to be cleaned, dusted, de-cluttered, etc.
I would love to help you style and stage your home. However, that is something outside my skill set. I specialize in amazing photography that is properly exposed and taken at the best angles.
Interior design and photography are two totally different skill sets. I look at it this way, when taking personal and family photos you would not expect the photographer to put on your makeup 🙂
Please review the previous sections for tips on preparing your home for real estate photography, and note that I am not responsible and will not partake in any of the following duties while photographing your home:
I Do Not:
In addition to GetRealEstatePhotos.com I own a marketing company that helps local businesses leverage the internet to grow their revenue. I am a serial entrepreneur with 18 years of business experience and a passion for architectural photography. It is from that passion this business was born.
I say all of this to ensure you I am not just a photographer, but a business owner who is going to treat your home, the shoot and the goal to sell your home fast with the utmost respect.
I look forward to helping you and your amazing agent sell your home.
