They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but a picture can be worth a thousand dollars in real estate! Professional real estate photos can help sell your home for top dollar. Here’s why we think it’s so important to have professional real estate photos in your listing.
Professional Real Estate Photos Matter to Buyers
People are using the internet for home buying more than ever before. In fact, 92% of home buyers use the internet in their home research and most of a buyer’s time is spent looking at photos. So, first impressions truly matter! Especially because 95.1% of buyers look at pictures before anything else on the listing. Potential buyers want to imagine themselves living in your home, and having great real estate photos can help set the scene.
Better Photos, More Clicks
People appreciate good-looking things. There’s a reason good-quality photos receive better engagement than poor-quality photos. So, when your listing showcases great real estate photos, people are going to be more inclined to look at your listing. This can also help make your home shareable on social media channels. This matter because your listing will get more attention and engagement, meaning it will find its way to a potential buyer quicker.
Professional Photographers Know How to Make Your Home Look Good
It is possible to take good photos with your smartphone, especially as their cameras get better and better. However, photography is more than just how good your sensor is.
Real estate photos need to tell a story of the potential buyer living in the home. So communicating mood, highlighting specific features, and getting the lighting and composition right is important. And don’t forget, every room counts, so that means positioning the furniture right and hiding personal items will ensure the buyer can envision themselves in the space. Having a professional who can look at your home through a lens of design will transform your listing and truly make an impact on potential buyers.
Homes with Professional Photos Sell for More Money
Believe it or not, it’s true! Homes with high-quality photos receive on average a 47% higher asking price per square foot. And according to REDFIN, homes in the $200,000 to $1 million range with listing photos taken with DSLR cameras sell anywhere from 3 to 11 thousand dollars more relative to their list price. It’s proven that the better the photos, the better the money offered. And of course, the opposite of this is also true.
