The spring selling season is the kick off for home shoppers who are sick and tired of winter glum.   Play to your audience and replace those dismal, gray, outdoor photo’s with ones of bright flowers, blooming tree’s and green grass.   And, if your area hasn’t welcomed spring yet, fudge a little and use ones you took in prior years.

Please don’t forget check your interior shots, too.    Replace any of those that are dated or make your home look cold and uninviting.   Buyers don’t find those photo’s of Christmas decorations, snow on the patio or roaring fires inspiring in mid-April.

Changing your photo’s at is easy and quick.   Stage your shots and upload them to your computer.  Be sure to name and number them so you remember what each photo is and the order of appearance.  (Note:  Watch our 2 Minute How To Upload Photo’s Video) Then, log into your desktop and click Edit Photos.   Replace all the dated pictures and congratulate yourself on going the extra mile.

Remember, our business is helping you sell your home and we want you to look good.   Nothing attracts buyers like a good picture, so do your best and happy spring!!!
