Want the most out of your photo shoot?

Why does a home builder have such nice cozy furniture and  pleasantly placed items?

Why do people use home stagers?  It’s simple.

The subconscious idea is for buyers to "forget" about peoples  belongings...  And "feel" the home or that particular room... To be so comfortable and able to "Imagine" your own belongings placed in that room...  To see or envision what life would or could be like living there... When imagination takes a buyer, A contract has a greater likelihood.  Clutter is repelling and ruins this entire idea.  The more comfortable people are, the longer they will stay. Statistics can prove this.


So embrace the advice from your Realtor,Stager or photographer who advise people every day. Who knows, maybe a picture is worth allot of money too.
