Back in January, I found this article on the Inman News website by Teresa Boardman.
In the article, she discusses the importance of great photography in real estate listings. She says what we’ve been telling local agents all along: “Photographs of the homes we list should be amazing, not just good. Photography sells real estate. Buyers use photographs to decide which homes to see in person. Homes with poor photographs are often screened out of the selection process.”
She even discusses how some agents are taking real estate photos with their phone – “If a seller sees an agent taking photos with a phone, he/she may think the agent isn’t a serious professional. The photographs may turn out OK, but they will never be good, great or amazing.”
