Picture Perfect: How to Stage Your Home for Impactful Real Estate Photos

As a seasoned real estate professional with Coldwell Banker Realty in Denver West, I understand the pivotal role high-resolution photos play in selling your home. They are often your property’s first introduction to potential buyers, making staging an essential part of the selling process. Here’s how you can make your home shine in real estate listings with some expert home staging tips.

Understand the Camera’s Perspective

Knowing that the camera's perspective is different from the human's eye, furniture arrangement and clutter can be magnified or feel uncomfortable to the buyer if it is not well placed. To combat this, focus on:

  • Arranging Furniture: Aim to show off the spaciousness of each room. Consider removing larger items that make spaces feel cramped.
  • Decluttering: Less is more. Remove personal items and excessive decorations to create a clean, inviting environment.

Create Focal Points

Creating a focal point in each room can guide potential buyers through the space seamlessly. For example, if you have a favorite wall hanging, place it on the wall farthest from the entryway and arrange the furniture in a triangle around it. This setup not only highlights key features of your home, but also demonstrates an effective use of space.

Utilize Simple Decorations

Keep your table decorations to three items varying in height. This could be a tall vase, a medium-sized pillow, and some magazines in the foreground. It’s about creating a scene that potential buyers can imagine themselves living in.

Add a Touch of Greenery

Incorporating plants into your decor can make rooms feel more vibrant and alive, which is exactly what you want in a photo. If you're not great on maintaining real plants, high-quality imitations can serve the same purpose without the hassle.

Brighten Up Your Space

Before the photographer arrives, open all the window coverings and turn on every light in your home. Good lighting can drastically improve the quality of your photos, making your home look warmer and more inviting.
