Normally we do not shoot the interior of closets unless they are empty. But in this case, the homeowner had staged a corner of her walk in closet, and it was adorable! You can tell that there is a lovely walk-in closet, but don’t have to see all the homeowner’s belongings to get a sense of the space.
Be sure to have your home clean and ready before the photo shoot. You can even add some fresh flowers, as shown in the photo on the left.
In reality, the home shown in the above photo is probably newer, but the brighter, uncluttered bathroom looks much more appealing. Preparing your home for photography can make a huge difference in selling your home.
If anything, this photo would detract from whatever master bathroom images were shown, rather than encourage a home buyer to come and see it in person.
The image on the right doesn’t show the toilet, and yet, somehow you still believe it will be there in the home.
If you don’t know how to remove your image from the photo, try to take the photo from an angle where you won’t be seen.
And, PLEASE close the lid of the toilet.
Remember, the listing is your “FIRST SHOWING” of the home, and your first chance to make a good impression on a potential buyer. Don’t distract them with things or people that are not needed in the photo.
It’s great to show a tidy child’s room, so families can envision the space, but don’t share any information that could put your child at risk. In addition, don’t photograph safes, firearms or any other item that might be dangerous to have shown in the listing. You don’t know who could be looking at it.
