Selling Your Toronto Condo

December 14, 2012

The Pictures Tell The Story When You're Selling Your Toronto Condo


According to an article that was released recently in the United States by the National Association of Realtors, the picture really tells the story when it comes to listing your home on the Toronto MLS®. If you put up bad pictures, it will be detrimental to the health and well-being of your ad.


The report says that pictures are the most important thing that influences a potential buyer to view the property or not. While a lot of text that information is fine, it’s the pictures that need to be concentrated on the most.


Getting the right pictures


If you have ever tried taking pictures of your home before you know that it can be a difficult task to perform unless you're really handy with a camera. Trying to get the full room into view while keeping everything in perspective can be a challenge, to say the least. The room can end up with a distorted appearance, may not be clear, might turn out too dark and the picture may not be useful for the listing.


Your Toronto condo for sale needs to be given the credit it deserves when it is being advertised. The best way to do that is to have someone come in to shoot the pictures if you aren't able to manage it on your own. Don't settle for second rate shots of your house.


If you have somebody in the family or a friend that knows photography perhaps you could invite them in to take some shots and then have them stay for supper as a form of exchange. You’ll want the shots of your home to be bright, alive and show your home as it really is.


Avoiding deceptive pictures


One thing that you do need to avoid is putting up any pictures that are deceptive. Sometimes pictures that have been taken using a fisheye lens make a room look bigger than it is. The only thing that's going to happen with these types of pictures is you're going to have viewers come through and end up being disappointed with the real thing.


Don't take any chances when you’re listing your Toronto property. A lot of people are going to be taking a look at your MLS® listing and will be basing their decision on whether they want to see your home or not based on the pictures you present. If all else fails and you don't know anyone that is handy with a camera, there are professional real estate photographers that can take wonderful pictures of your home for you.
