We often have sellers ask how they can improve their home listing on our site. More often than not, we start by looking at the photos of the home. We know that when we talk to home buyers on our site, their number one request is: “More pictures please!”
Statistically, we have found that homes with over 30 photos receive 25% more clicks to view than similar homes with fewer photos.
Yes, you read that correctly! So there really is no such thing as too many good pictures! The important word being “good”. While your bathroom might have really lovely tile, and you may have recently replaced the shower curtain, there are only so many good angles you can capture of this space.
However, the exterior of the home, the layout of the living spaces, the community the home is in, these are all areas that have a variety of different angles which would be very beneficial to your buyer. You would be surprised how quickly you can surpass that 30 photo mark!
Pro tip: Try having your first photo be of the exterior of the home since if the buyer was coming to see it, that would be their first impression in person too!
The goal is to give the customer the experience of walking through the home when they are scrolling through the pictures. Remember, home buyers might be moving from a different state.
Hopefully these few tips will help you be able to present your home to the perfect buyer – because after all, you only need one buyer to close the deal!
