Are you a buyer's agent that shows clients homes?
Are your clients' brains fried after looking at 10 homes?
Well, take your digital camera (get the Kodak v570 wide angle camera for under $200) and set your camera to the LOWEST resolution. When you are in the place start firing away like a mad man. Put it on motor drive if you can, and turn OFF the flash (faster photos). If you know how to change your ISO put it to 1600.
The point of these photos isn't to be pretty, but to be fast. Many look like this:
Start with an exterior photo of a photo of the house number. That way they know that you have moved to a new home. Make sure to take photos that show where the walls end giving the buyer a better idea as to the size of the room. The listing agent's job is to take photos that look great and huge, your job is to get photos that look more realistic.
Also hit each closest. Take everything. Sometimes I'll have 50-100 photos of a house.
At the end of the day, upload them using Picasa's free software from Google and with one click, you can upload it to a public or private photo album. Then you send them a link to the album.
They will be very impressed and they will refer to it many times.
What do you do as a buyer agent to stand out?
