A picture is worth a thousand words and can be thousands of dollars. Hiring a professional Real Estate Photographer can not only help you sell a property much sooner, but in some cases even help you reach a higher asking price!
 

People no longer physically go to all homes for sale to find their new dream home.  Instead we go to Zillow, Realtor.com, etc., enter a region, plug in our preferences and sit back and view images of homes on our large, high resolution monitors.  Professional photographers produce high quality images that can be displayed on these large monitors without loosing their quality.

 

Benefits of hiring a professional Real Estate Photographer
 

  • A Professional Photographer will capture all the details and lighting in each room then display it properly on the finished images.
    • Here is what a Professional Photographer's image looks like:

  • Here is what a smart phone image looks like, taken from the exact same spot just seconds after the previous image.

  • The difference is obvious.  Also, when you click on the images to enlarge them, you will see better quality in the top image.

 

  • A Professional Photographer will highlight the unique features inside and outside the home.

  • A Professional Photographer sees details in staging the home that others did not realize.  Especially in lighting, whether to put lights on or off and to open or close blinds / shades.
     
  • You can utilize your time more efficiently.  While the photographer is capturing images of the home to be sold, you can be going over details with the seller or lining up potential buyers.
