For Your Sake, For the Houses'

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Coleman Real Estate Services

I am constantly dumbfounded by the number of expensive homes that are completely ruined by poor photography and lack of editing.  These things are beautiful in person, yet let a run-of-the-mill agent/broker/assistant loose into one with a point-and-shoot, and the outcome is consistently less than stellar.

Now this is difficult for me because I don't want to outrightly insult my potential clients, but people have to start realizing that this matters, artistically and in a business sense.

Houses are works of art and should be treated as such.  Just as an artist works in oil or clay, a homebuilder works in brick or stucco. 

Also, as a real estate agent, your listings are your product.  If your product doesn't sell, you don't get paid.   Why continue to leave your livelihood up to chance?  Make those million dollar listings look like million dollar listings!

Anyone with me?

The agents in my office said I was crazy to spend more than $100 on a camera.  I spent $600 and my listing pictures look great.  I took a color flyer to a 600k listing today and the client said he didnt even recognize his house.  Great pictures make a difference.

The non-professional photography or lack there of (any photography at all) really bizarres me. It's a reflection of the listing agent and especially in the price range.

The thing that really frustrates me is a kitchen filled with boxes counter tops filled with clutter, a beautiful refrigerator covered with little johnny and mary's artistic creations and a dining room table that looks like a storage area. Besides that, no pictures or pictures of the furnitures and beds, not the features of the home. Oh, not to mention those pictures I have seen that include the pets.
