Your Tulsa Home For Sale – it’s ALL in the photos!

Your Tulsa Home For Sale – it’s ALL in the photos!

When your Tulsa home for sale goes on the market, you want to make sure that your home is in top-notch condition and that professional photos are distributed throughout the internet. Home Buyers are shopping online, so if they don’t like what they see in the photos, they are not going to consider viewing your home.


The kitchen has all the features a gourmet chef would desire, including double ovens (one convection), built-in microwave, sleek flat cook-top, inset refrigerator, under-mount kitchen sink and more. A large counter-top with bar seating, crown molding and canned lighting make this kitchen an inviting area to spend time with the family. Adjoining breakfast nook brings in lovely sunlight!

I always encourage Sellers to stage their Tulsa home for sale, and staged homes will photograph better. The professional photographer on our team, Leslie Gregory, says that staged homes are easier to photograph and the photos require less editing. Her results are always high quality, crisp photos – inviting prospective Buyers to view – and purchase!

Living room

A soaring vaulted ceiling, built-ins for your television and entertainment equipment, a beautiful ceramic tile fireplace with mantel, and a wall of windows overlooking the back yard complete this lovely room. Note the brilliant Brazilian wood flooring, recessed lighting and ceiling fan.

While searching online for half-million dollar properties for an out-of-state Buyer coming in this weekend, I was shocked to see listings with a single view of the kitchen or no photo of the salt-water pool. Before listing your Tulsa home for sale, please ask for examples of how your Realtor markets their listings. If they’re taking photos on their own or with their iPhone, find another Realtor!

Kitchen and living room

Kitchen with granite countertops, SS appliances, bar seating, double ovens, under-mount sink and butler's panty is open to the den with marble fireplace and several windows to the south.

Photos of your Tulsa home for sale should be professionally taken, and there should be lengthy and descriptive photo captions for each. Don’t leave the Buyer guessing whether the oven is convection or if the inside laundry is separate – describe each room at length in the photo caption.

Wrap-around porch

The beautifully restored tongue-in-groove ceilings and ceiling fans give a light and airy feeling as you're invited into this home through the custom-made front door.

The attraction and EMOTIONAL connection to your Tulsa home for sale begins with the photos. Buyers will be thinking, “I LOVE this open kitchen – look at all the storage and the beautiful island!” Or when viewing your living area or master bedroom, you want them to think, “there’s plenty of room for my furniture!”  Are you not falling in love with the wrap-around porch photo above? Can’t you SEE yourself sipping tea on that porch?

Living and dining

Open plan and beautiful hardwood flooring throughout this view from the kitchen! Contemporary & canned lighting, doors to patio.

Insist on quality photography, virtual tours and extensive verbiage when marketing your Tulsa home for sale. Make sure that it will be syndicated throughout the internet! Please consider our home selling team when listing YOUR Tulsa home for sale!
