I like to think I am creative and artistic and used to take all my own listing photos. Now I use a professional photographer. A professional photographer has more experience and tools at his disposal than I do. The cost of hiring a professional is minimal to the return I am getting.
Rather like what I advise clients, the cost of hiring me brings so many benefits it is worth it. Likewise, hiring a professional photographer removes lots of headaches for me. I get better photographs, better lighting, and most importantly the listing receives better marketing as a result.
Today most buyers see a listing on line first, those photographs provide the first impression. You have seconds to make that first impression, from what photo you use first to what order you place them, it is all important. If they are dark, unfocused, tilted what does it say to the potential buyer. But if they are light, straight, bright and focused it says come look at me!
This photo sold the house, everyone who saw it and came to the house mentioned this room and that it was the main selling point of the home. It is why we got multiple offers.
So, yes, I now use a professional photographer and it may mean delaying the listing of a home by a few days because of how hard it is to get an appointment with the photographer. But we want to make sure we get those photos up with the listing, because we don't want to list a home without photos because people think you are hiding something. We want the house to have the best chance of receiving the most offers in the shortest time and for the highest price. We don't want any secret listings, we want wide open marketing to bring in as many buyers as possible.
