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.

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)

real estate photography: Why You Should Use a Real Estate Photographer for your Listings - 12/30/16 02:12 PM
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.

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)

Before & After Mid Century Modern Holmes Run
 
 
Lat year we had the unique opportunity to shoot a property that was being offered in Historic Holmes Run, our 10th shoot in this neighborhood, that was being offered to investors as a complete renovation. The property sold and several months passed. The REALTOR representing the investor loved the images I shot of this home even in its less than best presentaion, and called me to shoot the home after it's renovation!

This past year I've shot 8 properties in Holmes Run Acres for various REALTORS and I love each and every Mid-Century Modern that I've been lucky enough to help with the marketing of these beautiful historic properties. This property was unique in that I first shot it when it was originally listed by one REALTOR and bought by a Real Estate Investor. Then I received a call several months later to reshoot the completly renovated property for another REALTOR. The transformation of this property was … (2 comments)
