When it comes to selling your home for the most money, you absolutely need professional photos.
I can't tell you how many times homes have failed to sell just because of terrible photos. You've probably seen them on social media; they look like they were taken by a flip phone from 1984 while driving by the house. We even see really high-end homes represented by very poor photography. No matter the price point, you absolutely need professional photos.
At our company, we net our clients more money because we focus our money on technology. We use a Matterport camera to create 3-D tours for our listings, as well as HDR and wide-angle lenses for our photos. We have two photographers working in-house and multiple third-party photographers that we use. Very few real estate companies have their own in-house photographers.
We net our clients more money because we focus our money on technology.
We also use DJI drones to shoot aerial photos, which are especially important for waterfront and luxury properties. We also use a DJI OSMO video camera to create walkthrough videos of our listings, because sometimes, a 3-D home tour doesn't tell the whole story.
Professional photos give a home great curb appeal and show it in its best light. Customers online are wowed by it as well. The days of taking one photo of a home and expecting it to sell are gone. We wouldn't invest tens of thousands of dollars in the equipment if it wasn't crucial to getting the most money for you home.
So if you're meeting with an agent to sell your home and they don't use a professional photographer, run!
