STAGING AND PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS
|Fill the leading shot with blue sky - not the grey of the driveway.||Take photos before and after staging. Show off the shiny floors.||Show off the kitchen within the first three photos. Kitchens sell!|
|Mix in some close-up shots. Adjust the blinds for best light. Turn the water on for a little added interest.||What's the prettiest side of a new refrigerator? The inside!||After kitchens, bathrooms have the most visual interest. Put the toilet seat down please!|
|Exterior photos must be taken on a sunny day. During our 10 month rainy season, I'll watch the weather report and return multiple times to get good photos. The couple hours before sunset provide the most intense, interesting light.||People walk through houses in five minutes. Focus the staging on their first impression: usually the living and dining rooms.||I favor small furniture. The point is to add visual interest. You don't want something bulky that people have trouble maneuvering around.|
|Kitchens already have a lot of visual interest. Two knickknacks are enough.||I get a lot of compliments on my cookie jar. I always call out, "You can put the cookie jar in the contract!"||Look for opportunities to stage outside.|
|Don't forget the garage. Guys like garages!||Take some photos of the landscaping.|
