Selling and Showing your New Orleans Condo? What works and what does not? Taking good photos is key !

      When selling your condo in today’s tough New Orleans market you need to have as much going for you as possible.  Taking good photos and conveying them to the buying public is a key ingredient to getting your adverstised and condo sold.  This is because most people start their search on the Internet looking at different sites on company sites or feeds that the agents send them.  Seeing the condo is what people want and they have many to search through.  

       This is much more important in condos as few people will call you off the sign.  Condo buyers are more likely Internet shoppers  due to the demographic and the fact many view from out of town.  The New Orleans MLS has just increased the number of photos from eight to twelve.  Allows you to see more.

      An agent needs to have a feel of what people want to see.  Many of the condos I sell are small lofts in complexes.  You need a very good camera with a wide angle lends to capture the feel.  People want to know about the views so its important to have a shot of the view if its positive.  If your views are not positive then go to the next feature, Its photo the positive aspects.

Condo Views are a key seeling point in New Orleans

      Buyers want to know about the complex and the amenities that it offers.  If you have a pool, exercise room, courtyard, lobby, parking, and anything special you need to show these.  I always like to get some photos with furniture as some places do really show better with the proper decorating.  If you have features like great windows, wood floors, brick interior walls, exposed beams you want to feature these aspects in the photos.

New Orleans Condos- Natural light is a selling point

      Agents with websites and blogs can always give the buyer even more.  Its always a plus to have your condo advertised on a site that people can find.  Great photos makes it easier to get good fliers as well. I will cover that another blog.  Remember seeing something nice will give you more showings.  Small things do matter!   Thats why the newspaper no longer works and has been deleted in my marketing plans.  There are better ways to market your condo and good photos are a start.  See what your agent does ?  Check out New Orleans Condos Featured Properties
