How to prepare your home for MLS photos

You’ve already prepared your home to sell, but do you know how to prepare it for MLS photos? 

11_Dining AreaThe photos of any listing are extremely important to its sale because most of today’s buyers will see the home online first.  Buyers are looking for a house with the potential to become their home… one where they can easily imagine living. We can’t count on them to mentally remove clutter from photos so they can picture themselves and their families using the space. This must be done before the photos are taken. 

Just spend 10 minutes looking at random MLS photos, and it’s not hard to find examples of “what not to do.” 

The camera can only photograph what it sees, so I encourage my clients in the Crofton MD area to follow these suggestions for a photo-ready home.

Preparing your home for sale and photos can be time-consuming, but there’s probably nothing more important to a home sale except pricing.

Three of my last four Crofton area listings sold to buyers who saw the homes online within 24 hours of listing. I don’t believe it’s a coincidence that the sellers of these homes did nearly everything I asked to make their homes photo-ready for these buyers.
