Marketing your home for sale means attracting the most potential, qualified buyers as possible. Nowadays, most buyers start their home search online, so photos of your listing make a huge difference in the amount of people who will want to view it. This ultimately results in a higher sale price. A popular saying is: A picture is worth a thousand words – that is absolutely true when it comes to real estate. It’s almost impossible to describe your home without pictures.
Poor quality photos can be extremely detrimental when it comes to marketing your home. So, the question is, “Will professional photography help sell your home?”. The answer is Absolutely. Professional photography can be the difference between selling your home, or not.
Catch the Attention of Buyers
While looking at online listings, buyers are instantly interested in the home’s photos. Did you know that more than 90% of buyers look at the pictures of the home before looking at anything else regarding the listing? Your pictures need to catch a buyer’s attention immediately – inviting them to check out the property’s description. Without excellent photos, many potential buyers will not push forward to the online listing.
It Makes a Difference
Professional photographers understand what the key elements are that make up high-quality images. This includes proper lighting, positioning, etc…Your kitchen should look like a “piece of art” rather than a sink and the stove.
Properly staged rooms attract homebuyers, looking at the rooms like they could picture themselves in their new life in their new home.
Lighting, angles, and composition are used to capture the emotion, structure, and beauty of the home. Professional photographers are trained to see all of these factors and bring them into their photos.
Photographs can be enhanced to bring your home to life in the eyes of the buyers, something that professionals know how to do, and make it look like the home someone has been searching for.
Professional Photos Help Sell Homes
There are studies that show how professionally taken photographs help to sell homes faster than the homes without professional photography. Remember, your own photos may not help your home’s sale – it could actually hurt the potential sale. You really need professional quality images in order to have a major impact on potential buyers.
In the end, professional home photography will give you and your home listing a competitive edge when selling your home. I always use professional photographers for all of my listings. To help get you started, contact me.
