If you go to view a house or look at photos online before you book an appointment to view a property as most people do, ask yourself which is more appealing: a messy or a decluttered house? What might put you off going to view a perspective future home? Is it clutter?? Quite possibly… and why might that be? My guess is because clutter makes the property look like there’s not enough space. Plus, it often gets in the way of seeing how big the room is. A bit of decluttering can go a long way.
I have so often turned up to photograph a property that is due to go on the market and found toys on the floor of the living room, clothes all over the place, and bottles and bottles of lotions and potions filling the bathroom. All or most of this gets moved to another room before my shot gets set up. I like the place to look tidy but lived in. So that you can imagine/ see just how nice it is to live here. That’s my job. If I have to make the bed, so be it. Just as well I’ve always been a tidy person and recently a bit of a Mrs Clean 🙂
The two photos are of the same room. No need to ask which looks better!
