Make your Lake Chelan home speak to buyers with its photos!

By
Real Estate Agent with Criterion Properties

Photographs are the language of real estate marketing. Words just don't express the feel of a home like good photography can. On the other hand, poor photos can convey a message that is detrimental to marketing a home.

An out of the area realtor has a fun site called Truly Awful Listing Photos. You can see bad composition, poor subject choice, photos that just should not have been put in the listing, awful lighting and more. We can joke about this and enjoy this site, but keep it in mind when you are looking at someone to list your home. Look at some of their listings on the MLS. Many shots similar to these can be found on our local listings.

The listing photos of your home are IMPORTANT!

I often utilize professional photographers. For my own pictures, I use a camera with a wide angle lens (25 mm) that allows the proper capture of a room. When there is a view window in a room, I will use High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography to get both the room and the view in proper exposure. I have the experience and the eye to do some pretty good real estate composition too!

Have some fun looking at some of the photo's on Eric's site. This is one of my favorites from his site!
