Take Pictures of Your Home Even If You Are Not Currently Selling

Lesson learned for all home owners...make sure to take year-round pictures of your home, especially the exterior.  Even if you are not planning to sell your home, it is important to have pictures available of your home for your Realtor.

Sure, you may not be planning on selling your home soon; however, chances are that sometime in the future you will sell.  What if you find yourself having to sell due to relocation, financial constraints or other obstacles that suddenly happen to your lifestyle?  Let's say you have an inground pool, but you find you have to sell your home in November.  You've covered the pool...that does not make for a very enticing picture featuring that great outdoor space.  The same for beautiful landscaping with flowers in bloom or water features such as ponds, fountains, etc.

This year, make it a point to take some pictures of the exterior of your home throughout the seasons.  I'm sure your very proud of your home and having a picture file will be handy.

Pictures are extremely important when marketing a home for sale and when you have special exterior features your Realtor will want to highlight, be ready with your array of seasonal pictures.
