Great listing photos of your home for sale are a requirement not a bonus.

Camera gear doesn’t guarantee good listing photos. Planning does.

professional photographer for real estate listing photo

There is this urban legend that if a real estate agent buys the right camera, all they have to do is point it at something and press a button, and the end result will be a professional-quality photograph.

I almost always want a better camera, a shiny new lens and maybe a nicer lightweight tripod. It’s easy to spend an entire commission check for selling a small condo — and more — on basic photography equipment.

excerpt from Teresa Boardmansarticle on Inman

 

If you are going to list your home for sale you will need to do everything to make sure your home is presented to potential buyers in the best way possible. Buyers will see you home photos online before making the choice to see it in person. Tech nology is a great thing but buying the TECH TOOLS is not a simple fix: you have to know how to use them.

If you Real Estate Agent takes pictures and you don’t like them ask for new photos to be taken or ask for them to hire a professional photographer in you area.

In 2013, 48% of first-time home buyers and 40% of repeat home buyers used the Internet in their home search process.homebuyer graphReal estate agents are mostly preferred by first-time homebuyers for their initial housing search. Especially last year, there was an increase of the first-time home buyers who asked for the services of a real estate agent. This trend shows how increasingly important is the role of real estate agents when there is limited inventory on the market.
