We see it all the time. Amateur photos taken of homes that are listed in the MLS for sale. A good or bad photo can make or break your home sale. Being successful selling your home starts with a professional presentation.
Listing agents or brokers use these poor examples in their online marketing and offline print ads for the property. It’s a poor representation of the property and frankly something I would never have my name associated with.
I regularly see fliers in flyer boxes in front of the house stuffed full of fliers that have photos that are so bad I’m embarrassed for the seller.
Here’s an example of a poor lighting and not capturing the entire kitchen. The person that took these shots didn’t even take the time to turn the lights on in the kitchen. Not a very good presentation to the potential buyer and certainly not what a seller is expecting from their agent or broker selling the house.
Here is another example where the listing broker didn’t take the time to turn the lights on inside the room where they are taking the photo.They only shot half of the room and really dropped the ball here.
I have a professional photographer that has been working for me and shooting all of my listings for the past 11 years. He knows the best angles to shoot a room and how to get the best lighting to showcase the room. The photos we use are high resolution and can be used for both print and online advertisements.
The next time you get ready to list your home for sale make sure the broker you hire has a professional photographer that can get the job done.
Many times you have only a few seconds to attract a buyers eye online before they eliminate your property from the ones they want to view. Don’t you think that having your home presented professionally with top notch photos is a bare minimum?
Here are a few more examples of high resolution professionally shot photos of my listings. This is how it should be done.
Another way I professionally market homes I list for sale in the MLS is by using professional videos with onscreen talent.
Here is an article about video and how it can be used.
Small rooms like the one just above deserve as much attention as the larger main rooms. Buyers want to see what the home has to offer so you better make it visible and beautiful.
