Real estate photos sell homes.
It's the pictures that buyers first see online that determine which homes they will visit for a closer look and which homes they will discard as unacceptable.
It's important to note that visual appeal is not the only thing to strive for when photographing a home for sale.
Emotional appeal is also important.
Something home stagers often do is shoot a close-up shot of a decorative item, making it the focal point, with a positive feature of the home as the background of the photo.
Most mls listings simply show each room.
When you include one or two of these unique shots you are more likely to capture a buyer's attention by making the home seem more interesting.
Extreme close-ups can suggest a certain lifestyle.
They make the listing stand out from the competition, and make the home more memorable.
Is your listing ready for it's close-up?
