Professional Photographs?

professional home photography

As a top Portland real estate agent, I believe I take great photographs for my clients and have even taken some classes to enhance my skills. Yet, I always offer professional photography services to all my listing clients.

Why?
Right now, there is nothing more important in selling your home than its online exposure. 92% of buyers are using the internet in their home search (NAR report 2013). I pay to feature my homes on the top 5 real estate websites so they show up first in search results – and it makes all the difference.

Photographs are the most impacting part of your online presentation.
I take great photographs, but I cannot compete with professional photographers who have the extensive education and experience to really make your house shine. On top of it all – they are relatively inexpensive.

I’m amazed at how many people will quickly drop a thousand or thousands off the price of their home, but at the same time, would never consider spending $100 – $200 to drastically help their home sell.

Should I get professional photographs for my home? Yes, for most houses in average or above average condition – yes.
