Today’s subject is one of my favorites: horrible real estate photos. Here’s a good one:
Don’t you wish that your agent could take great pictures like this? It’s unbelievable to me that an agent who is hoping to sell a home and get paid a fairly big chunk of change would try to cut corners and publish pictures like this but an awful lot of them do. It’s even more amazing that a homeowner would hire them in the first place!
Here’s another great one:
Sure, it costs $$$ to pay a professional real estate photographer but in the overall grand scheme of things it really isn’t all that much – somewhere between $100 and $200. These days the internet is the first place most people see a home for sale. Why wouldn’t you want that first impression to be the best it could be?
Here’s one more shining example for you:
If your home is currently listed and your agent has published pictures like this, I’d recommend that you insist that they hire a professional photographer and take new pictures. And it shouldn’t be just any pro photographer – it should be one who has lots of experience with real estate photography. It isn’t all that hard to find a good one.
So that’s it for today. I’m off to try to list a house or two. And by the way, I DO pay for professional photos!! Have a terrific house buying (or selling) day!
