• Take interior photos during the day with lights on and window blinds open ¼ of the way to provide balanced light.
• Take photos with bright windows to your back or to the side if possible.

UNUSABLE IMAGES
• Illustrations, floor plans unless they are your own original, copyright-free work
• Photos copied from an MLS listing or other copyright protected photos
• “Combined” photos (no nested, stacked or side-by-side images)

FSBO Best Practices
You are acting as your own sales agent so be prepared to do some work to earn the commission you will be saving. Your VillagersFSBO advertisement is only one part of the process of selling your home.  You will need to do much more to ensure your home gets the exposure it needs to sell.  

Here are a few tips:
Prepare/stage your home. Removing personal photos, decorative collections and extra furnishings. Clean carpets and paint walls and perform necessary repairs. 
Set a realistic price. There is plenty of information you can find about similar home sale prices on the internet.
Provide detailed information in your listing. Highlight improvements and features.
Great photos.  We will improve your photos as best we can, but it may be worth hiring someone to take professional photos for you.  We accept copyright-free professional photos.
Network.  Email links to family and friends, post on your social networks, keep flyers with contact information handy. (This is why you want to add the "Private Website" to your subscription!)
Hold Open Houses. Put out your "Open House" sign to capture drive-by traffic when there is an open house nearby (the local paper lists them daily.)

Once you start your advertisement with us you will receive additional insights, tips and suggestions in your "Welcome" email.
