Seller’s Should Freshen Up a Stale Listing with New Photo’s

Wednesday, October 22, 2008 posted by Tommi Crow


As home shoppers search through listings of homes for sale, nothing screams STALE LISTING, like seeing a photo of your home that was taken during another season. 

If the season’s have changed while your home is on the market, freshen up your listing with new seasonal photo’s.   It’s Free and Easy to Do.

  1. For extra appeal, stage the photo with seasonal color or add a pumpkin or two before you snap the picture.   The bonus, pumpkins and seasonal decor can be enjoyed through Thanksgiving. 
  2. If your home has features that are more appealing during certain times of the year, such as swimming pools, waterfronts, flower beds and landscape, leave the photo’s, but change the captions to reflect the height of the season.  (ie:  Fun in the Sun 2009, for example).
  3. Highlight and rephotograph the area’s of your home that are appealing when the weather is crisp.  Photograph a fire in the indoor or outdoor fireplace.  Decorate the dining room for fall entertaining, then shoot.   Snap a picture of your media room right before the big game.  The goal is to Showoff the features of your home that you enjoy during this time of year.
  4. A home/neighborhood video tour is another great way to freshen up your listing and reach a whole new audience, too. uploads video tours on its homepage and to, bringing your home to the attention of a whole new crowd.

It takes only a few minutes to edit your ad and replace old, dated photo’s.  Freshen up your listing and celebrate the season.  Buyer’s will notice.
