What is Staged Photography?

By
Home Stager with Staged First Impressions

Staged Photography combines home staging with props to create powerful listing photography. Staged Photography can help a home to sell because buyers get a positive first impression when they look at the MLS on the web.

85% of home buyers are looking at the on-line homes for sale FIRST. Make those key listing pictures count!

What is Staged Photography?

  • Listing photographs taken after the area is staged and props are added to the space to improve and update its look
  • Images are PhotoShop'd to edit any imperfections or crop unwanted background
  • Photos can be uploaded to the MLS, Realtor.com, Trulia, or wherever you'd like them to go!

What are the benefits of Staged Photography?

  1. Attractive listing photos draw buyers in from the web, they will be more apt to schedule a showing
  2. Staged Photography is less expensive than full home staging because the props are not left at the home

The master bedroom didn't have a picture posted on MLS at all because it just didn't show well.
Here's the staged photography image:

There are loads of opinions on listing photography, but I believe that trying to cram too much info into one picture isn't good. Example kitchen above, the ultra wide angle gives us a good look at the layout of the area, but it doesn't look very warm and friendly. The living room above, also with wide angle lens, makes this expansive room look narrow, but it isn't by any means!
Getting a more zoomed in look of these rooms (but still using a wide angle lens), makes the rooms look more cozy. Staged Photography combines home staging know-how and beautiful props.
Staged First Impressions also gives sellers a featured tour to post on the MLS (or to email), included with price of staged photography. The featured tour from Real Estate Shows that was created for this Hampton Falls, NH home:

Sue, oh no...no...no...no...no!  This book is one of the items you can buy from the CSP course I took.  I wish I had authored it, but alas it was not to be.  However, thanks to Shell Brodnax I have a new form I use for consults and it actually works better.  I include photographs of jobs that people have to do.  (This idea courtesy of Shell also.)  Shell was kind enough to share it with us on one of her blogs.  Betty
