The house is nicer than the pictures.
This is a lot better reaction than "the pictures are a lot nicer than the house."
In our case, that is my brother Eric Jenkins, also a Coldwell Banker Realtor, this is by design.
So many Realtors pride themselves on the professional pictures, showing the house in the best light.
It makes the home appear very attractive on the internet and promotes traffic.
Another theory is to take the pictures in a modest way. Not trying to make the house look better than it is. This way, when the buyer sees the home they say. Wow. This house is nicer than the pictures.
This leads to conversations about the home versus conversations about the camera and the lighting and how did they make those pictures look so good.
Of course, if the pictures are not good enough to get the buyers into the home in the first place....they would never have gotten into the home.
So, we tell our buyers that the criteria will get the home on the list. 3/2/2 Pool home, for example. The pictures will get them into the home if it meets their criteria and are not too bad.
Then the buyer will either be impressed with the home or impressed with the camera and photographer.
