What attracts more showings, increases online views and helps homes sell faster and for more money? Good quality pictures of your home! Getting a professional exterior and interior photo shoot is a must when selling your home.
Most prospective home buyers these days search on the internet, and it’s the pictures they see that draw them in. Listings that include professional photos receive many more online views and get more showings. But not just any photos will do. Listings with poor quality photos, for example those with low lighting, will work against you. Having no photos at all in a listing usually causes people to skip over it completely.
Hiring a professional for the job is the best choice. A good real estate photographer has the right equipment, such as wide angle lenses to get the right angles of the room and make it look as spacious as possible without distorting it. Professionals know that proper lighting is crucial when photographing a home. Everyone wants to see a bright home, not a dark and dingy looking space. Lighting the photos correctly brings out the best in your home.
You will want to stage your home and clean it well before the photo shoot. Remove all clutter from surfaces in each room. You don’t need photographs of every room in the home, but you’ll definitely want to include the kitchen, living room, master bedroom and master ensuite.
Taking the time to invest in good quality photos of your home will most certainly pay off!
