How to Prepare Your Listing for Photos

If you’re looking to sell your home, captivating photos can be a game-changer. In today’s real estate market, online listings serve as the initial connection with potential buyers. Visually appealing images have the power to capture attention and ignite interest. At Coastal Community Real Estate Group (CCREG), we understand the significance of remarkable photography.

Prior to listing your home as active, we will arrange for a professional to conduct measurements and engage a skilled photographer to capture high-quality images of your property. To help streamline the process and make your listing stand out, here are some essential tips to prepare your property for those pivotal photos. 

Interior Preparation

From the kitchen to the bathroom, every room in your house is an important selling point. Thus, it’s essential to stage these areas that will appeal to buyers. 

  • Turn on all lights throughout the house 
  • Replace any burnt out bulbs
  • Open all blinds and curtains
  • Hide personal items when possible
  • Clear everything from kitchen countertops
