Good first impressions start with impeccable online listings. That means curb appeal, interior staged to the quality of a model home, and - of course - professional photos.

“You want to sell your home fast, and as smoothly as possible,” says Realtor Kristi Kenney, K2 Homes Keller Williams.  “Good agents will hire a professional to photograph your home in a way that looks attractive online and entices prospective buyers to come see your home.”

It doesn’t matter how many megapixels your phone camera has - good photography means using the right equipment, camera, tripods and yes - drones.  “Drone photography,” says Kenney, “can be a big part of the marketing of your home, especially if you have a lot of acreage or gorgeous front or back yard that you want to show off.”

But before the photographer and/or videographer comes to your home, here is what your real estate agent wishes you knew:

  • Pay attention to detail - put away embarrassing items in the bathroom before you take a photo.
  • Your cameraman needs to take photos when the lighting is good – in the morning or afternoon when natural light shines in is best.
  • Your knick-knacks aren’t photogenic. Hide your soccer trophies and hide your ceramic pigs. According to Realtor.com, all those knickknacks that make your house feel homey (to you, anyway) won’t translate well online.
  • Put a lid on the garbage can or move it.
  • Trim all the blinds and shades to the same level.
  • Use some work lights to fill in dark areas.
  • If you have props or accessories on a table, odd numbers work best.
  • Fluff the pillows.
  • Don’t show valuables. Valuables + a listing address = an invitation to burglars.
