How professional photos sells homes faster

Homes that have been professionally photographed sell for thousands of dollars more than those that haven't.1 In fact, homes with more photographs stay aon the market for less time—as little as half the time!2 According to real estate expert Barbara Corcoran3, “if your home doesn’t look good online, [buyers] are just not going to even bother to come see it.”

In a down real estate market, the competition your client’s home will face is fierce. Your client is trusting you to sell their home, and professional photography shows you are willing to go the extra mile. 90% of buyers use the internet in their home search4, and most real estate websites show the photographs above mostof the information. People are very visual, and many would rather see the features of a home than read about them.

How professional photos gets you more clients

If you hire a professional photographer, it shows you are willing to go the extra mile to market your clients’ home. You will stand out in a saturated market, giving you the competitive edge you need to earn more listings.

Even if your listing has been on the market for weeks, months, or even years, you can still hire a professional photographer. New photographs can liven up a listing, and garner a second look from potential buyers.
