Listing's with Professional Photos Sell For More Money

With 92 percent of home buyers using the Internet as part of their home search, listing photos are a critical factor in the selling price of your home, how quickly it sells, and whether it sells at all. Recently REDFIN Research Centre reported that across all real estate price tiers, homes captured with DSLR ( Digital Single Lens Reflex) photography were more likely to sell within six months than homes with point-and-shoot photos. In the $400,000 to $500,000 price range, 64 per cent of homes with DSLR photos sold within six months, compared to 46 per cent of homes with point-and-shoot photos.

 

For those difficult-to-sell million dollar homes, 35 per cent of professionally photographed homes sold in six months, compared to 30 per cent of homes with point-and-shoot photos.

 

The report also says that the sharper the image, the better the price point.  As people scan real estate websites reviewing properties and residences on a digital device, Redfin says the sharpest 10 per cent of photos sold at or above list price 44 per cent of the time, while listings with average sharpness sold at or above list just 13 per cent of the time.

 

We strongly believe this report. All of our photos are taken with a DSLR camera and below are some samples of the photos we have taken.
