These days nearly everyone researches their real estate purchases online. Having great real estate photos with your listing can mean a higher sale price, more offers and even a faster sale when you sell your home. The National Association of Realtors found that 89 percent of homebuyers found online photos helpful during their home search and 58 percent of all homebuyers found their home via a mobile device like a phone or tablet. Research by real estate giant Redfin shows that in every listing price tier, homes for sale that had DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) photography were more likely to sell within six months than homes with point-and-shoot photos. That means your smartphone pictures, while functional, can't compete at the same level as professionally shot real estate photography.
No matter how fabulous your condo, flat, house or manor, if you don't have professional photography that showcases your place in its best possible light, it's like you're throwing money away. Just like with online dating, people are drawn to beautiful photos that showcase all the great features and interiors, not shadowy selfies. Real estate photographers specialize in working with the shadows and lighting that are inside and outside of homes. They understand how and when to shoot photos based on the location and setting of your home, how to frame the best inside shots, and the best times to plan a photography shoot. Real estate photographers use professional editing software to retouch each photo for optimal outcomes. The end result is a selection of photographs that illuminate your home or commercial property's assets and soften the not-so-perfect parts.
