2924 Syracuse Ave – Another Older House That Needs Some TLC

Here’s another house that’s been fixed up with new paint and somewhat refinished flooring that will make it easier to sell.  However, as you can see in the photos, there’s a lot more remodeling TLC that needs to be applied to bring it up to more modern standards.  

Not All Properties We Photograph Are “Showcase” Homes

Not every house we photograph is one of those you see on the front page of various real estate, vacation, travel, or architectural magazines.  Regardless, we still need to do our best to photograph those houses and present them in the best way possible for the prospective buyers.  They need to see the true condition of the property but they don’t necessarily need to see all of its “warts”.  No matter what we do in the photographing or editing process, we absolutely cannot remove anything unpleasant.  As most of you are aware, that is construed as mis-representing the property which is a big no-no.  We often have to strike a balance between making the property look “too good” versus showing reality in all of its “splendor”.   

310 Alexander Drive is one of those houses that are not magazine ready.  

New Listing – 5420 Nicole Blvd

This is a new listing for one of my favorite agents!  Her father builds houses and this is just the latest one which is ready to be sold.  As you can see it is unfurnished but very clean and modern looking.  If you are interested and need the agent’s contact information, let me know!  Thanks for viewing…

Latest Project

As you can no doubt tell, this rental property is a little rough around the edges.  It had a lot of dark wood in the kitchen, dark floors, and somewhat neutral but dark colors in the other rooms.  Lighting was on the dark side as well.  Using the proper photo techniques and very little flash to avoid that “flashed” look, it’s possible to showcase these homes with good photographic techniques.  It’s a challenge to strike a balance between making the property look “too good” versus making it look so bad nobody would even want to show up to see it in person.
