The last day it was permissible to have exterior home shots showing brown — or green — grass was officially . . . . yesterday.
The banks selling foreclosed homes aren’t going to bother to update their photos (assuming they have any).
However, it’s a good idea for all other Twin Cities home Sellers to swap out their Fall (or Summer) photos for winter ones.
Not doing so gives the impression that the home is a short sale or foreclosure, which is: a) bad for the price; and b) bad for showings (which ultimately is the same thing).
P.S.: In fact, I just changed my web site, RossKaplan.com, to substitute snow flakes for Fall leaves. Check it out!
