Winter Listing Photography Tips - Haring Realty

Selling your home in winter depends on how visually appealing and inviting your property looks to a buyer. That initial look will often be your online listing, so it's important that your listing photos make a good first impression on potential buyers. Our REALTORS® want you to get that picture-perfect listing for your winter home photos.

Haring Realty is the only broker around the Mansfield area that employs a professional photographer onsite. This allows us to showcase your home in the best possible light online. All you have to do is get your home prepped for the day of the photoshoot. Here are seven easy steps to get your home photo ready.

  1. Clean, Clean, Clean
    An important note not just for photos, but for any listing. Make sure your home is sparkling clean before you list it for sale. From cobwebs in corners to shampooed (or replaced) carpets, make sure you deep clean inside. Don't forget to clean outdoors too, removing leaves from gutters and power washing your siding if weather permits.

  2. Remove Snow and Mow
    Unfortunately, Ohio weather can make it difficult to know which action comes first, but make sure you keep up your landscaping and exterior maintenance in winter. Remove snow from sidewalks and doorways. If the snow hasn't arrived, you should make sure your yard is neat and tidy.

  3. Decorate Seasonally
    Create a festive look with some tasteful decorations—but don't go overboard. Consider hanging some icicle lights or a holiday wreath. Avoid larger decorations like an inflatable Santa, or other decorations with a specifically religious theme.

  4. Pet-Free
    We all love our pets too, but a barking dog or inquisitive cat could put a wrench in your photoshoot. Ask a friend or relative to keep your pets for the day to ensure that we can photograph your home without any distractions.

  5. Include Plants and Greenery
    Plants can add much-needed life to listing photography. Make sure you have a selection of indoor plants and some vases of flowers (don't worry, you can buy new or rent if you don't have a green thumb). Outdoors think of your evergreens and trim any wild shrubs or winter blooms.

  6. Winter Doesn't Last All Year
    If your summer fire pit is your best feature, don't hesitate to add that to your home listing. While people will want to see your property now, they'll also want to see possibilities for the future. Don't hesitate to add photos from all seasons, showing your home in different colors and stages.

  7. Professional Photo Support
    With our professional photographer handling your listing photos, you can sit back and relax. From exterior shots with the best possible lighting to interior shots taken at the best angles, your listing photos will capture what makes your home stand out among Mansfield homes for sale.
