Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day - May 2nd, 2008

Fridge Magnet Collection Negotiable”

One of the best pieces of advice to give a client when listing a place for sale is to clear away clutter. The last thing you want a buyer to do when touring your house (or viewing the photos on MLS.ca) is to spend time admiring (or lamenting) your family photos, fridge magnets, knick-knacks, etc. Depersonalize your space so a buyer can envision his or her things in your place. Not only will this help sell the place, but you’ll get a head start on packing.

    hey Tim, I check your horrible mls pics of the day on a regular basis!!! we just put our apartment up for sale and i’ve gotten a lot of tips. for example, i just finished removing every single magnet from our fridge and all other knick knacks from the kitchen.

    but in one of the mls listings our realtor sent is a picture i want you to add to your photo of the day. do you take submissions? i’ll send it to you monday if you do.

    don’t suppose you want to take a trip to surrey to take the pictures for our listing, hey? lol

    have a good weekend!

  • Thanks for the comment, Cassandra!

    I don’t generally take submissions, as a general rule, and if I do, I prefer that they come in the form of an anonymous photograph. I never look at who the listing belongs to because I don’t want to know, and don’t want to expose any particular REALTOR® on this blog. However, if they do find their pictures here, I hope it inspires them to either get some photo training, or hire a pro to shoot for them.

    I suggest you talk with your REALTOR® about it and ask him or her to re-take the photo.

    Good luck with the sale of your place!
