If you are working with an agent that is going to be selling your property, please ask them about the photos that will be taken of your home. Your home, no matter what the price point, needs to have the best representation when it’s being marketed to potential buyers or investors. Good photos can do a lot when selling your home. Below are some stats that prove the point that if an agent is just going to use their own digital camera or phone to use to market your home, you need to tell them to re-evaluate their thought process.
According to IMOTO, a professional photography and virtual tour company they have found that “[homes with] professional photography sold 50% faster and 39% closer to the original listing price than similar homes without professional photos.” That’s HUGE when you’re talking about what could be your biggest investment.
The statistics department of a New Orleans-based real estate agency, also found listings using professional photography were viewed 118% more than comparable listings.
Please make sure that your agent has your best interest at heart when selling your properties; their commitment to you should be that of almost coming off as “bragging”. Our agents at Keller Williams RiverTown know how important marketing and exposure of your home is to you, feel free to reach out at any time to talk to someone today. (616) 288-3244.
