So what's a real estate glamor shot? No, it is not the glamor shot like you're thinking, where you go to the mall and dress up and get your photo taken. The real estate glamor shot is actually the first shot of the home or a series of first shots of the home that actually show the home off to the best of its ability. It's what every single buyer will fall in love with when they look at the home online. This is why it's so important as a seller to have really great leading photos, glamor shots, that help attract buyers into your home.
Now, why do buyers need to beware will you need to beware? Well you need to beware because when you fall in love with that glamor shot and you've seen all the staging, all of the makeup on the property, when you go back for your final walkthrough, three days prior to closing, all of that is going to be gone. The lights are no longer on, the sky is not painted with a sunset. There's no fluffy pillows and couches that are smaller in size to make it look really glamorous. It is all empty. There may be, you know, marks on the wall. There could be something happening with the sink. All of those things you have to verify during the final walkthrough. But the point here is that it's going to look very very different than when you first saw it. If it has staging in it and it was a glamorous leading photo.
So buyers beware things are going to change. You're going to look at the home a lot differently without the furniture. And you need to be aware that when you are first looking at it, you're seeing it in the most glamorous way that it can be presented. So be aware, do the final walk-through, just be prepared to see the home in a very different way. Hopefully you're already envisioning your own things in that home.
