So how do you set yourself apart from the others? What makes someone looking for a realtor choose you over all of the others?

northern virginia real estate photography: Why you need to add video to your photography package - 01/23/18 10:30 AM
While you may be well aware of the importance of professional photography to your real estate listings, you have another valuable tool that should be considered as a supplement to your photography: video.
When preparing to list a property, professional photography is something that has been established as a clear necessity, not just a luxury. Home buyers spend more time researching properties online than ever before and most do this research before ever contacting a realtor to look at a listing. This means that pictures that are done professionally are imperative to getting buyers into your homes. However, many real estate agents … (4 comments)

northern virginia real estate photography: The right Photographer for the right Job - 06/19/17 02:33 PM

 
If you were hiring a portrait painter, you would want an artist that specializes in portraits, not architectural renderings, right?
 
If you have a chronic sore throat, you would want to see a doctor that specializes in ear, nose, and throat issues, not a doctor that specializes in foot disorders.
 
If you’re looking to redo your kitchen, you’re not going to hire a carpet installation expert to manage the job.
 
In this same way, you’re not going to want to hire just any photographer to take pictures of your real estate listing. You want a photographer that has experience in real estate photography.

northern virginia real estate photography: Virtual Staging and How it Can Help Sell Your Vacant Listing - 04/22/17 11:25 AM
 
Virtual Staging and How it Can Help Sell Your Vacant Listing
Presentation is everything in real estate, especially when most potential buyers check properties out online before they even consider seeing the property in person.
As realtors, we’re all familiar with staging – where a professional comes into a home, decorates and fills it with their own furniture and accessories to make the home more appealing to potential buyers. Traditional staging is a highly effective practice. However, it can be costly and time-consuming. A professional stager needs to have access to the home to move in their furniture and a sufficient amount of … (8 comments)

Not All Real Estate Photography is Created Equal
 
Just as you would never hire a general practice doctor to perform brain surgery, or a financial advisor to design a skyscraper, you should not hire someone that is not professionally trained and experienced at photographing homes and architecture to photograph a house.
One of the most important tools a realtor can use in selling a home successfully is an experienced, professional real estate photographer. First impressions are critical to selling a home. Most people decide within 8 seconds whether or not they're interested in a property solely based on the photographs that accompany the … (0 comments)

Why You Should Use a Real Estate Photographer for your Listings
 
 
A picture says a thousand words, right? According to Realtor.org, 92% of homebuyers use the internet for their new home search. They browse listings when and where it's convenient for them, using laptops, tablets, and phones. This means you need to capture their interest immediately because they will not linger on a photo longer than 20 seconds before they move on to the next listing. If the image that you're presenting as the main image of your property is not professional, appealing, and intriguing, they will move on.

northern virginia real estate photography: Why You Need a Floor Plan With Your Home Listing - 10/17/16 05:21 AM

 
It's standard practice when selling a home in Northern VA and Washington, DC that you would never list a home without high-quality photographs of the home, including the interior rooms and features. However, many don't realize the importance of providing professional floor plans with their home listing. A floor plan can truly mean the difference between a quick sale and a longer, drawn-out process.
Rightmove.co.uk, the UK's leading property listing website, has researched this subject and found that 1/3 of buyers were less likely to express interest in a property that did not have floor plans included in it's listing. It's the … (4 comments)
