Browsing listing options as a buyer can be intriguing and exciting, but it can quickly become overwhelming and exhausting. There are many options to choose from, each listing with their own set of unique benefits and areas for improvement. Buyers can’t tour them all, so what will set them apart?
Quality professional photography can create the ultimate first impression for those browsing the market. Not only are their cameras capable of capturing well-lit, high-resolution images of your home, but the photographers themselves are also well-equipped with advanced techniques and editing skills. This, combined with a skilled agent, can create the listing that best represents your home. In this blog, we’ll cover some of the many advantages of hiring a professional photographer.
At a base level, photographers carry high-resolution cameras that can capture crystal clear photos of your home. But beyond that, there is an ever-expanding variety of advanced technology that can give your home an edge over the other listings.
This technology can vary from hardware to software. With the rapid advancement of drone technology, professional photographers can often take stunning aerial photos and virtual flythroughs or tours of your home and property. This can be advantageous if your home has a large lot, beautiful green spaces, or sits in an ideal location. Drones themselves are rather expensive, but professional photographers will often put them to use if owned. In terms of software, editing tools like Adobe Photoshop can be used by photographers to add an extra layer of beauty to the photos of your home, always ensuring that the original subject is not being misrepresented.
If you’ve used a professional photographer, it’s clear to buyers that you and your agent have put effort into your listing. Upon first impression, buyers will generally infer that your home and property are both well-maintained. If potential buyers decide to pay the home a visit, they won’t feel duped or cheated since the photos will be well-representative of the space.
This can be a real game changer when your listing is compared online to others where photos were taken by the seller or the agent themselves. Lack of quality photography can be a deterrent if other listings in the area are consulting the professionals for their services.
Professional photographers are often experienced having captured a variety of homes and properties. This gives them the technique required to capture the best angles and most important qualities of your home. Working together with your agent, strategy can be implemented to make sure your listing attracts as much interest as possible.
