Photographs - The Bigger the Better

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with AMH Creatives

I recently photographed a home for a client and was surprised to see she no longer had her Enhancements status on Realtor.com so the virtual tour I made for her was only going to be seen on the MLS.  The horror, my beautiful photographs would only be seen in the wretched MLS size, and only 4 of them at that.  When she explained what the added cost was, I completely understood and then remembered the tour building site I use only charges $10 more to link to Realtor.com even if the agent does not have the required status.  I know listings with more photos are looked at more often, but I have yet to hear the statistics on listings with big, beautiful photos that also provide some "mood" music...you decide.

Anna, the tour looks tons better.  By the way were you using any flash at all?

Kevin,

I use up to 4 flashes.  There are times I use a different exposure for the windows and hand blend it into the image but usually the flashes balance the lighting between the window view and inside.

Great tour Anna.  Several inspectors have tried doing virtual home inspections with a narration. Definitely makes a great presentation.  Keep those blogs coming.  Have a great week.
