A picture is worth a thousand words!

That's one of those old sayings that seems to be true.  When taking photos for marketing your home, whether for-sale-by-owner or a seller ready to hire a realtor, the photos that are taken are so important.

Remember that straight-on shots of bare walls can be quite boring.  Try to take photos from different angles, maybe on the stairway looking down into the family room showing how spacious the room may be.  Maybe a photo of a cute wall mural in the bedroom.  A photo of a table and chairs on the front porch can create the feeling of rest and relaxation in the evening hours, visiting and sipping lemonade on the front porch.  Take photos that create feelings.  Focus in on the cozy area with the fireplace as the focal point and maybe a close up of the kitchen work area with the luminous granite counter  top.  Turn your photography into an art form and your flyers will stand out "above the crowd."  Color flyers are so important - colors evoke emotions, emotions are part of the driving force in a buyer's decision to purchase a certain home.

Take a whole roll of photos at your next listing.  You can choose the good ones to use in the presentation.  Whether you have a good digital camera or a good 35mm camera either way will be great.  They now have a camera that is digital but you can still adapt your expensive lenses you have from your 35mm camera.  It's called the "Cannon Rebel" - - and looks pretty sharp!

Before the photos are taken - - either have your realtor help with staging ideas or hire a professional stager to help you get rid of the clutter and give you ideas on re-arranging some of the items you have so they will look the best possible.  It's all in the presentation!!

Great advice... I'm convinced that one of the reasons homes don't get traffic is because of the photos
