Pictures Can Be Worth Thousands!

So you’re thinking about selling your home?

You have heard a picture is worth a thousand words…well they can also be worth extra thousands in your pocket when selling your home!

According to National Association of Realtors, over 43 percent of home buyers, the first step in the home-buying process was looking online for properties. What first impression do you want to give potential home buyers? How about selling value? It’s not surprising that on average, listings with better photos command higher asking prices: If you believe your home is worthy of good photography, you’ll probably ask more money for it.

Alexandra Hanlon with Ally and a Camera (http://www.idahofallsphotographer) & Naturally Maternal  Photography  ( suggests “using natural light whenever possible”. You can do this by opening all the blinds/window coverings and picking appropriate times of day to shoot. Also, be sure to take different angles of the home, shoot from down low or up high to create the most flattering view.  Lastly, be sure to take LOTS of pictures, you can always choose and edit only your favorites. I want to provide the home buyer with plenty of high quality photographs so they can get a true feel of your home.

If you list your home with the Dakri Bernard Realty Group, these quality pictures are included in our services.I truly feel that every listing, big or small, deserves the best and we take pride in every listing and sale. I work together with my clients in getting their home looking it’s best beforehand  (see my post about staging here:>> so that when the photographer comes in we can get pictures that truly accentuate your homes’ best features. Don’t be stressed- we only work with upbeat and friendly professionals who will make you feel comfortable and at ease. We want this whole process to be as smooth and carefree as possible; after all, we understand you are probably living there! Just do the best you can and utilize the advice from our stager and photographer as it fits your lifestyle. Don’t want to meet with a stager beforehand? That’s fine too, just let us know!

I strive to provide a level of exceptional service and value for my clients unlike any other Idaho Falls or Rigby real estate agent. We will make your home look so good, you’ll second guess why you are even selling!!

Give us a call and we would love to guide you through the process.
