The Importance of Taking Great Photos

The National Association of Realtors Home Buyers & Sellers Survey states that 9 out of 10 people use the internet to search for a home, and they overwhelmingly state that photos are the #1 aspect they value most when searching for a home. Great photography skills have become essential for creating polished and professional looking home listings.

If you were a potential buyer, which of these homes would you be more interested in?

Would you believe that these photos are all of the same house?

If you’re in the mood for a good laugh, check out some of these sites dedicated to awful property photos:
BadMLSphotos.com

TerribleRealEstateAgentPhotos.com

While these are entertaining to look at and share with our friends, what would your client do if their home ended up on one of these sites? Chances are they’d be looking for a new real estate agent. Property pictures are a direct reflection of your expertise and professionalism. You’re doing yourself and your clients a disservice if you’re not taking the time to take great photos.
