I was cruzing around Active Rains google and came across this awesome and informative post that I thought this was a must read for our tight community of Active Rain Real Estate Professionals.
Why Do Agents Put Such Poor Photos in MLS?
I was attending a photography class in another town when one of my classmates asked Why do agents put such poor photos in MLS?
She added before I could answer that some were dark, some were blurry and looked off balance and didn’t their seller’s care that they were so bad?
I thought a moment before I answered. I said that many agents are point and shooters. They probably have an all-in-one camera and probably haven’t learned how to use the settings. They take their photos quickly so they can move on to their next task. I never got to answer the part about the seller’s reaction before she asked the next question.
Shouldn’t they would at least look at them before they upload them? My answer to that is that maybe they are in a hurry or think that is the best they can do. I think some are really bad too.
Then she said then they should hire someone to take the photos for them. I responded that not all listings have adequate commission to pay for professional photography.
Her response was that maybe they need to take a photography class and learn how to take better photos. I had to agree. Then we shared a laugh together.
Why Do Agents Put Such Poor Photos in MLS? If agents notice and the public notices, then the sellers surely notices. Taking better photos just takes some practice and some easy tips and the desire to do it.
