What Is a Pre-listing (Photo Prep) Consultation?
A pre-listing (photo prep) consultation is a service that helps homeowners and real estate agents prepare their properties for sale and for professional photography. The goal is to make the properties look attractive, spacious, and inviting to potential buyers, and to showcase their best features and selling points.
“Home staging is not just a cosmetic touch, it’s a strategic move. It helps you stand out from the competition and attract more buyers. It highlights the value and potential of your home. It makes your home look like a dream come true. Home staging is the smart way to sell your home in any market.”
~ Lew Corcoran
Why Are Pre-listing (Photo Prep) Consultations Important?
Pre-listing (photo prep) consultations are important because they can make a significant difference in how fast and how much a property sells for. According to research by the National Association of REALTORS®, staged homes sell 88% faster and for 20% more than non-staged homes. Moreover, 87% of buyers say that photos are very important in their home search process, and 40% of buyers are more willing to visit a home if they like its online photos.
How Do Pre-listing (Photo Prep) Consultations Work?
Pre-listing (photo prep) consultations typically involve a walk-through of the property with the homeowner and/or the real estate agent, where a professional home stager provides verbal advice and recommendations on how to improve the appearance and appeal of the property. The home stager may suggest things like decluttering, depersonalizing, cleaning, rearranging furniture, adding accessories, updating fixtures, painting walls, enhancing curb appeal, etc. The homeowner and/or the agent can then implement the suggested changes before scheduling a photo shoot.
What Are the Benefits of Pre-listing (Photo Prep) Consultations?
Pre-listing (photo prep) consultations offer many benefits for homeowners and real estate agents, such as:
- Increasing the perceived value and desirability of the property
- Creating a positive first impression and emotional connection with buyers
- Highlighting the unique features and strengths of the property
- Minimizing the flaws and weaknesses of the property
