Midtown Tulsa Real Estate - Lori Cain

A picture tells a thousand words - especially when you are selling your home!

A picture tells a thousand words - especially when you are selling your home! Prospective home buyers are shopping on the internet and whether they choose to consider your home is greatly dependent upon the quantity and quality of photos available.

Professional photo of home front

Yes, we run across listings every day that have only four photos, when every property should have a minimum of two dozen photos, even if it's only a two-bedroom home. Extensive verbiage detailing the FEATURES of your home need to be included in your internet presence and advertising also, but this post is just about the photos - we'll get to verbiage in another post.

Quality counts. Is your Realtor using a professional photographer who gets the best shots from the best angles and understands the importance of lighting?

Quantity counts. Prospective Buyers won't consider the unknown. They want to see every angle of the dining room; they want to see where the washer and dryer are in relation to the rest of the house. They want to understand the flow.

Virtual tours. Virtual tours are a must. As mentioned above, prospective home Buyers want to understand the flow of your home. Is the butler's pantry in between the kitchen and dining or in between the kitchen and living area? Is the washer and dryer located by the kitchen or garage entry? After viewing the virtual tour, do the Buyers WANT to come see your home?

Well lit, light and bright photo of living and diningBright and light photos sell a home!

A Picture Tells a Thousand Words - and it makes or breaks whether Buyers will ENTER your home. They won't consider purchasing it, if they don't ENTER it. And, prospective home buyers are shopping on the internet -- the photos of your home displayed will be a deciding factor as to whether or not your home will be selected for consideration.
