How To Get A Home Photo-Ready, According To The Pros

The importance of photography in real estate listings cannot be overstated and as such an entire side industry of staging experts has sprung up to support the efforts. If you want to hear some inside tips from the pros, head over to this article in the New York Times that has some ideas that don’t usually make the standard lists of how to get a home photo-ready.

One example they cite is to hang artwork higher than you normally would because it makes the ceilings look taller. Also, sellers can make the bed and bedroom look wider by matching the colors of the pillows to the bedspread so that the edges blend together and don’t create a visual break in the flow of the central focal point of the room.

Check out the rest of the article for more ideas to make the physical spaces of a home translate well into listing photos.
