WHAT’S A PHOTO WORTH WHEN SELLING YOUR HOME


PROFESSIONAL QUALITY PHOTOS

Don’t want to de-value your home? Consider better photos. Listings with great photos get more online attention and command higher asking prices. And yet, only a very small percent of agents incorporate higher-end wide angle photography into their marketing.

Surprisingly, even when marketing homes in the upper price range, they don’t always invest in quality photos to showcase these homes. Real estate listings that use photographs taken by the higher-end 24mm WIDE ANGLE cameras tend to do better than those that use photos from cheaper point-and- shoot cameras.

As The Wall Street Journal 10/4/2010 reports, “listings with nicer photos gain anywhere between $934 and $116,076.” Wide angle cameras capture more of the room’s features and tend to produce high-quality images. They cost more than point-and-shoot cameras, but considering the data, they are worth the investment for a home seller. Rather than wide-angle photography, most agents photograph using a simple point-n-shoot or camera phone. The biggest surprise is that they just don’t want to invest the extra to make the best first impression to buyers.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU?:

Do you believe your home is worth it? Let’s not mince words: If your home is not being marketed using quality photography & video, this could cost you on the sale. A wide-angle, professional-looking photo dramatically increases the likelihood that a potential buyer will click through to view your listing, and drives more buyers to tour your home. Ultimately, the more people interested in your house, the better your chance of receiving an attractive offer. A photo really can be worth a thousand dollars.
