We live in an age of convenience. Rather than hailing a cab, you can order a car to pick you up in minutes with a swipe on your phone. Instead spending all day at the mall trying on clothes, you can have your size delivered straight to your home. It is no different in the world of real estate. If you are looking to buy a house, you can see an accurately depicted, high definition photo of your prospective abode. At least you should be able to.
Professional photographs make the difference in catching buyers’ attention when you put your home on the market.
Before the age of convenience, prospective home buyers would read your listing and do a drive by. They would literally get in their car and drive by the house. Now they shouldn’t have to do that, and most will not. Technology is so advanced that they should get the experience of a drive by and much more, when they see your online listing. Photos should capture the essence of the house. You want to photos to compliment the house, while showing it for what it is. That way there are no surprises for the buyer.
What quality photos can do that a drive by cannot, is reveal the interior of house. Anyone who reads your listing can experience the living room, backyard, kitchen and bedrooms. They should get a sense of the space and be able to envision themselves there. Sorry, but an iPhone photo just won’t cut it. Back in the day, a good listing would increase drive by viewings, causing a lot of traffic in front of your house. What high quality photos do is increase the online traffic on your listing.
A professional photographer will capture the space, color and beauty of your home, whereas amateur photos can actually make a house far less aesthetically appealing than it actually is.
