I’m revising one of my listings. I’ve updated the house, putting in some autumn decor and colors. I’ve got a title I like but I can’t decide on the cover photo. Could y’all please weigh in with your opinions?
If it is a whole house rental with kitchen privileges and you’re in a market where guests likely cook (mine certainly do) I would go with the kitchen photo. It will be interested to see what others say.
@Keugenia Kim, what a lovely home! I love all the photos but I particularly like the kitchen, although you know your guests best – do they stay at your place for family vacations, attend business events or what?
First of all your home is gorgeous! It’s difficult to decide because all photos are great but I would go with the living room but take another picture with only one blanket and take off some of the pillows. There is too much of a good thing going on.
The living room feels small, so I don’t recommend it. The kitchen seems very nice, and if you had a full view, that would be the winner in my book, but since the bedroom seems like the one that has most of the whole room in it, I would go with that. I always do living rooms though, if it’s a whole space. Shared space is always the room so they see the room first. Hope that helps.
It’s a whole house listing. My guests stay for a variety of reasons. Some come for work; some come to visit family; and some come to visit the area. The title of the listing is “ Stylish home; great kitchen; spa shower; queen bed”
My pictures are mixed up right now because I’m making changes to the listing but you can go ahead and look if you want.
My reasoning: if you have a cozy, clean, well appointed bedroom (as represented in your photo) where’ I’m going to be sleeping, then I’m intrigued to see the rest. As nice as the kitchen is, when I’m on vacation, kitchen is not my priority.
You have a beautiful home and your new photos are bright and clear! I love the kitchen photo - looks high quality and sharp - very eye catching. Even though I only use a kitchen for quick breakfast or reheating in microwave, it pulls me in and I want to see more.
The bedroom is my next favorite. I have a pet peeve about having a nightstand and lamp on each side of the bed. I take out the shelf and add another table/lamp on the other side of the bed.
The living room is very nice, but I think it’s too many pillows and throws. I would roll up the throws and put them in the basket under the table, then mention them in your description.
Yes, you’re right. I prefer that too. I’ve been looking for a night stand that would work in there and haven’t found anything. But I’ve recently seen people use a simple wall mounted shelf next to the bed so I think I will try that until I find something I like better. There’s room for that and I can still leave the bookcase.
What a lovely home!! I would start photos with the bedroom, then the living room, kitchen, then second bedroom. I’d fold the blankets in the living room and get rid of about half the pillows - too busy - perhaps the blue ones?. Your kitchen is perfect and gorgeous. I love the bedroom, it’s what I’ve been striving for in my own listing and I’ve been making changes… Good luck!
