Why Should You Use a Professional Real Estate Photographer?

A National Association of Realtors home buyer survey indicates that quality photography provides a significant home marketing advantage.  Very few real estate agents have the equipment or skills required to do quality interior photography.

What is required to produce high quality interior photography?

Digital Single Lens Reflex camera body$2,000 +/-

Ultra wide-angle lens$600 - $2,000 +/-

External flash lighting equipment$1,000 +/-

Photo-editing software$800

An eye for making rooms look attractive.

Extensive practice at shooting interiors.  If you’re not well equipped and experienced your marketing photos will show it and not be fully effective.

Given the effectiveness of professional photography in marketing homes it should be given high priority in home marketing budgets.

  •  Photography is the central component of home marketing.
  •  It increases effectiveness of web marketing.
  •  It increases the effectiveness of print media.
  •  It makes the agent look good because it reduces market time and increases net sales price.
  •  It will help you compete for more listings.
