How A Photographer Can Help Sell Your Home

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker RCI Realty

When it comes to selling your home, quality photos have never been more important. Did you know that 90% of home buyers search online during their home search? That means photos of your home are prominently displayed on countless websites like Zillow, Trulia, and so many more.



Consider this, do you want a grainy picture of your dimly lit living room to be the first thing buyers see? If it is, chances are buyers will skip right past it and on to the next listing. Why? Because as consumers that is what we have come to expect. Marketing is becoming increasingly visual and with so many high quality images constantly filling our inboxes and news feeds, the bad stuff starts to stand out (and not in a good way!)


How many people do you know who started their home search browsing photos and listings online? That is where so many buyers start these days, browsing listings online and then contacting a real estate agent to schedule showings. How is your home portrayed online? Do the rooms look spacious or cramped? Well lit or dark? Are the photos crisp and clean or dark and grainy?

So true. In the "early" days I tried to do it myself & I discovered quickly that photography is much more than just "point & click". I've been using a pro now for years & he does an excellent job. I get compliments on every listing I put up.

For upper-scale homes, a professional is a worth-while expense. For the average home, most point-and-shoot cameras or modern cell phones are capable of taking decent photos. The problem is that most agents don't know how to compose a shot properly and they don't use a wide-angle lens. The world would be a better place if everyone kept their reflection out of the mirror (stove, window, etc) and put the toilet seat down!
