Listings With Professional Real Estate Photography

Listings With Professional Real Estate Photography

Did you know that real estate agents who utilize professional photography can earn twice their average gross commissionable income than those who do not? Using photography professionally helps agents double their average commissionable income when compared with those who don’t, dispelling a popular misconception that only high-priced properties need premium marketing; in reality, every property, from million-dollar estates to $200K starter homes, benefits from top quality imagery – your clients and their homes all deserve premium representation in marketing efforts. 

96% of homebuyers start their searches online, so visuals become even more critical; having professional photographs taken can differentiate your listings and attract more showings, ultimately increasing success in the competitive real estate market.

What Is Listing In Real Estate Photography?

Listing in real estate photography refers to presenting a property for sale or rent with all visual and descriptive marketing materials that represent it effectively. Listings typically feature high-quality photography of the property’s exterior, interior, and critical features, which draws potential buyers or renters by creating a compelling visual image that attracts their interest and provides them with convincing representations.

Real estate photography is the process of taking photos of professional real estate properties with proper use of lights, good angles, and property arrangement to ensure that the properties get the best looks – or, in other words, to involve the art of taking good quality photos with good proportions, and good lighting, and arranging the thing in a proper manner that will generate interest among the viewers for the rooms and properties. It may involve the use of helicopters or drones and a panoramic or open-house view to offer a 360-degree view of the entire property.

Conversely, poorly composed or low-resolution images could discourage viewers regardless of value.

Real estate photography listings market properties by creating visual and descriptive packages that draw potential buyers in, ultimately leading to successful sales or rentals.

Listing Components For Real Estate Photography

Comprehensive real estate listings contain several key components designed to give potential buyers or renters an aesthetically appealing overview of a property’s features and amenities. These components may include:

Detail Shots are close-ups of notable features like fireplaces, fixtures, or architectural details that stand out.

Aerial Shots are drone photography captured from above that captures an aerial view of your property layout, landscaping, and neighborhood.

Twilight Photography: Evening shots that highlight how different lighting affects its look. Virtual Tours and Videos: These options capture your property tour in a virtual form more comprehensively than static pictures alone can do.

These elements come together to present an attractive property presentation and attract potential buyers or renters while streamlining the sales process.
