Do professional photos make a difference on home listings ?

Do you have your home listed for sale ? Have you checked to see how it looks on the web ? 

How it looks really matters since most home buyers are going to see your home on the internet before they see it in person.  In fact for home buyers and agents alike the internet serves as a screening tool.  We can screen out the really ugly and unappealing homes. 

Just about any home can look amazing on the internet but most do not.  One thing sellers can and should do is ask their agent to send them a link to the information about their home from the agents MLS. Those  same pictures and information will end up on numerous web sites.

If the pictures don’t make your home look amazing consider asking your agent to hire one.   Pictures can and should include entire rooms not just parts of rooms and they should be well lit and never dark and dingy.  

If you are serious about selling your home get involved.  Look at your home on the internet as if you were a home buyer.  Would you buy your home?  Does it look appealing or dark and dingy?

Professional quality photography is the fastest, and easiest way to market a home for sale.

Take a look at the photos below. This is an actual home I have listed. My photos are on the right and the previous photos are on the left. See how angles make a difference ? How using a wide angle lens helps capture the high ceilings in a room or the wider view ? We also made a few minor changes to make the home’s features stand out.

What do you think ? Was it worth paying a pro to shoo the photos ?
