You have an average of 20 photos to pull a potential buyer through your front door. You can use a slide show or just stills that potential buyers can click through for more details.
However, just like you want to put your best foot forward in a job interview, your best photos should be right up front. The flow of these photos should also be a "pitch" that tells a buyer what makes your house different from the rest. Your selection of photos should answer most, if not all, of these questions.
1. What are the best rooms or spaces in your house?
2. Where is your front entrance? What does your house look like when driving up to it?
3. From when you enter the house, what do your guests see first? What draws their attention?
4. Where would you entertain guests? Main room, prep area (kitchen), powder room.
5. How do you get to the family area (bedrooms and bathrooms)? How many bedrooms and bathrooms and what do they look like?
6. What are your best storage areas? Bonus rooms?
7. Do you have yard space? Any features--patio, garden, shed, etc.
8. What are the local amenities? You can do a collage photo for this.
9. What are areas you don't like?
Thinking of how you should stage and photograph your house with this in mind will keep your time and money more efficiently used.
